The Well-Architected Review
As the first and only UK-based Consulting Partner to hold the Well-Architected Framework certification as well as the AWS Education Competency, we can ensure your AWS workloads are configured to your precise needs and apply the industry best practice to your existing workloads.
IMPLEMENTING BEST PRACTICE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR YOUR AWS WORKLOADS
Using the AWS Well-Architected Framework as a model, we offer insight into your workloads as well as step-by-step guidance to a better, more cost-efficient cloud when you need it. Our AWS Certified Solutions Architects and Well-Architected Ambassadors leverage their expertise to undertake a deep-dive review into the performance of your existing AWS workloads. We then recommend how these workloads can be re-architected so that they adhere to best practices and meet your business goals.
We’re so confident in our expertise and experience that we offer up a half day review for free, provide you with a Highlight Report identifying key issues and recommendations. From this we will work with you to develop a remediation plan, and help you apply for up to $5,000 of AWS credits to use towards implementing the plan with CirrusHQ.
TRANSFORMATIVE RESULTS FROM RE-ARCHITECTED WORKLOADS
Perhaps you haven’t carried out a health-check of your workloads since they were launched (and we recommend doing so regularly). Maybe you want to take advantage of one or more of the hundreds of services AWS introduce every year – services your in-house teams may not yet be able to deploy. Or, maybe you think your workloads are costing more than they should and are looking for better value for your spend. Whatever the reason, the Review can create a business case for re-architecting your workloads and can revolutionise how the AWS Cloud works for you.

THE FIVE PILLARS OF THE WELL-ARCHITECTED FRAMEWORK
Our experts review your workloads against five pillars: Performance Efficiency ensures your workload is running optimally; Reliability minimises business impact from failures and enables rapid recovery from incidents; Security protects critical systems and ensures data integrity; Cost Optimisation controls and analyses costs so you can scale your business whilst having full transparency of your AWS spend; and, finally, Operational Excellence confirms your platform complies with best practice and AWS design principles and that the right monitoring is in place to allow for continuous improvement.Book a Review
THE FOUR STAGES OF THE REVIEW
Firstly, we work with you to identify the workloads and stakeholders involved and agree on the scope and timeline of our engagement. We then undertake a Review Workshop in which our CirrusHQ experts meet (online or in-person) to review your business objectives in relation to the workload and begin a deep-dive assessment of the platform. This results in the third stage – a short-term Action Plan which highlights recommendations that can be implemented within the Well-Architected Review. Finally, CirrusHQ will provide a detailed review against the Framework with long-term recommendations for further improvements.Book a Review
