Workshop with AWS: Putting AWS Cloud Pillars into Practice
The Five Pillars of the AWS Well-Architected Framework—Operational Excellence, Security, Reliability, Performance Efficiency, and Cost Optimization—provide a way to consistently measure operations and architectures, identify areas for improvement, and respond to evolving requirements or external issues. The goal of the framework is to help architects learn the process of making informed, value-add decisions that reflect the organization’s priorities.
In this Q&A session, Excellarate’s Mike Watson hosted Hamdy Eed, an AWS Senior Solution Architect, for a lively discussion about putting the pillars into practice. They explored how to navigate tradeoffs, a crucial function of the framework in guiding organizations through the process of shifting focus and priority among the pillars as needed. And Mike asked Hamdy to talk about the latest tools and innovations available in the market to augment the implementation of each pillar.
Attendees walked away with a better understanding of how the AWS Well-Architected Framework that helped them learn how to:
- Design and implement scalable architectures that align with AWS best practices
- Effectively utilize computing resources to maintain efficiency when system requirements change or technologies evolve
- Expand options with a structure that weighs priorities and adds business context when evaluating the trade-offs of each decision
