Contino is delighted to have been approved as a partner to conduct AWS Well-Architected Reviews.

AWS Well-Architected is a set of best practices and core strategies for reviewing critical workloads running on AWS, and consists of two key components, the Well-Architected Framework, and the Well-Architected Review.

The Framework addresses general design principles, best practices, and guidance across five pillars: Operational Excellence, Security, Reliability, Performance Efficiency, and Cost Optimization. The Review component is designed to look at and measure progress against those key areas.

Well-Architected enables customers to review and improve their cloud architectures and better understand the business impact of their design decisions even with the rapid pace of change - AWS released 1400+ services and updates last year!

Why would I want to apply Well-Architected to my environment?

  • To build and deploy faster

  • To lower or mitigate risks

  • Make informed decisions on architecture

  • Learn and entrench AWS best practices

Contino are an AWS Premier Consulting Partner with a highly-certified team, and thus were selected to help scale up AWS’s ability to conduct these reviews. The benefit of working with Partners like Contino for Well-Architected Reviews is that AWS provides service credits to remediate any critical issues that are identified in the process.
