Optimize Architecture and Continuously Improve Your Modern Cloud Environment

If you already move your workload to the cloud, you still need to make sure that you architecture in the cloud is well optimized. To get the most out of your cloud architecture requires deep understanding about capabilities of your platform, features available in the cloud, services and specific scaling needs of your existing workloads.

To evaluate the systems you have and to determine how to initiate improvements to your cloud architecture can be quite a challenge without a framework to reference.

Berca Hardayaperkasa certified AWS Architect can help you and your team a Well Architect Review of specific workload or specific application with free-of-cost engagement. We will help you to figure out whether your workload or application meets AWS best practices?


When it comes to maximizing the benefits of cloud computing, having a well-architected infrastructure is critical. A well-architected framework provides a set of best practices for building and operating reliable, secure, efficient, and cost-effective systems in the cloud.

One of the ways to ensure that your cloud infrastructure is following these best practices is through a Well-Architected Review.

In this article, we will discuss what a Well-Architected Review is, its benefits, and how it can help you optimize your cloud infrastructure.

What is a Well-Architected

A Well-Architected Review is a process that evaluates the cloud architecture of an organization based on the five pillars of the Well-Architected Framework:

Operational Excellence, Security, Reliability, Performance Efficiency, and Cost Optimization. This review helps identify potential issues, gaps, and opportunities for improvement in your cloud infrastructure.

Benefits of a Well-Architected

Improved Cloud Infrastructure: The review provides insights and recommendations to optimize your cloud infrastructure, enabling you to take full advantage of the cloud’s capabilities.

Cost Optimization: The review helps identify areas where you can reduce costs, ensuring that you are not overspending on resources that you don’t need.

Security: The review helps identify potential security risks and provides recommendations to mitigate them, ensuring that your cloud infrastructure is secure.

Reliability: The review helps identify potential failure points in your infrastructure, providing recommendations to improve the reliability of your systems.

Performance Efficiency: The review helps identify areas where you can optimize your infrastructure to improve performance and efficiency.

Operational Excellence: The Operational Excellence pillar includes the ability to support development and run workloads effectively, gain insight into their operation, and continuously improve supporting processes and procedures to delivery business value.

Sustainability: The discipline of sustainability addresses the long-term environmental, economic, and societal impact of your business activities. You can find prescriptive guidance on implementation in the Sustainability Pillar whitepaper.
