The Benefits Of A Well Architected Review
If you’re moving to the Cloud, a completely Cloud-oriented architecture is essential. An underperforming, or overcosted, infrastructure at this level can impact your wider solutions.
A Well Architected review isn’t just an audit — it’s a detailed list of recommendations and actionable improvements.
Furthermore, When you choose a Well Architected review from PGS Software, you get more than just a generic Cloud review service. This is because we extend it by adding our own expertise and vast experience into the mix. We do this in two key ways:
Deep Security Analysis
- we go above and beyond the standard auditing level to ensure your Cloud architecture and solutions are truly safe - including all the data stored within.
Infrastructure as a Code review
- we will review your current code that generates your Infrastructure to optimise, improving results and securing your architecture execution in the process.
What Is The Outcome?
Our Well Architected Review process is designed to give you as much insight and advice into your infrastructure as possible. The outcome of the review is a list of identified risks, along with an understandable, prioritised, size estimated and actionable recommendation plan that allows you to start working with PGS Software’s Cloud experts to improve and secure your solution.
This is created in accordance with both AWS and our own best practices, using well established standards and trusted solutions.
The documentation you receive from us will not be the product of a simple automated tool, but rather the personally crafted and tailored expertise of a talented Cloud specialist, provided specifically for each client.
Our goal is to give you clear vision about the steps to take to upgrade your solution and its architecture. Because we’ve helped clients at all stages of the Cloud journey, we can offer the exact advice and instructions needed, no matter how large or established your architecture is.
How Does It Work?
Want to get the most out of your Cloud architecture and the solutions that sit on top of it? In a Well Architected review, our Cloud experts will thoroughly assess and review your existing infrastructure.
Not only will this uncover any potential flaws or issues, we’ll also give you detailed insights on how to optimise, refine, and improve your system.
Specifically, we look at the 5 AWS Well-Architected Framework Pillars:
Is your solution working as optimally as possible? We’ll ensure your Cloud architecture delivers its intended business value and satisfaction to end users. We’ll also make sure you’re prepared for the future with continuous improvements and adaptability.
Your system needs to be protected, along with any assets or information stored within. We look to solve any potential issues here, as well as to protect against unpredicted failures with mitigation strategies and solutions.
Downtime is the bane of any business. We can assess your Cloud architecture’s workload recovery strategy. This will ensure that you can survive power or system failures through backups, smart resource management, and automatic recovery processes.
Fast and smooth performance is essential for any product or system. Our Well Architected framework review will assess how computing resources are used, how they can be better configured, and how to workload can be best distributed for maximum performance.
Is your system as cost-efficient as possible? We can assess how you are using Cloud resources and ensure everything is scalable, avoiding unnecessary but ongoing expenses.
Customer Success Stories
AWS SaaS platform for digital cinematic content
„The solution’s communication protocol needed a complete rewrite and it was decided that building a brand-new architecture would be the best way forward.
The team working on the project rebuilt communication, added network fault tolerance, improved the database layer, and helped make use of the AWS Cloud to its full potential.”
Improving the hospitality industry with a Cloud-first app
„A scalable, highly available, and extensible microservices architecture was implemented for the easy processing of large amounts of live data.
The microservices guarantee the solution remains stable and reliable, whereas, the system’s immutable design protects against the loss of data and facilitates its aggregation.”
Migrating to the AWS Cloud saved an application’s life
„While working on this project, we implemented an immutable architecture, exchanging, entire instances for new ones during deployment.
This ensured zero downtime deployment, which facilitates seamless implementation of new versions of the applications.”
