Well Architected Review

Build your systems using a structured approach to best practices

How Cevo's Well-Architected Review works

A Well Architected Review (WAR) provides a consistent and repeatable way to assess the current state of your AWS workload, with a focus to provide architectural guidance and best practice recommendations.
Well-architected workloads enable you to build and deploy faster, mitigate technology risks, ensure compliance, and be cost effective on the AWS platform.
A Cevo-led WAR is a qualitative assessment delivered through a facilitated workshop against the six pillars of the Well-Architected Framework. At the end of the assessment, you will have a clear list of risks that have been identified, and a path to remediation through an improvement roadmap.


The Well-Architected Framework reviews your environment across the following pillars:

Operational Excellence

The ability to run and monitor systems to deliver business value and continually improve supporting processes and procedures.

Performance Efficiency

The ability to use computing resources efficiently to meet system requirements, and to maintain that efficiency as demand changes and technologies evolve.


The ability to protect the information, systems, and assets while delivering business value through risk assessments and mitigation strategies.

Cost Optimisation

The ability to run systems to deliver business value at the lowest price point.


The ability of a system to recover from infrastructure or service disruptions, dynamically acquire computing resources to meet demand, and mitigate disruptions such as misconfigurations or transient network issues.


Managing the environmental impacts, especially energy consumption and efficiency, since they are important levers for architects to inform direct action to reduce resource usage.

Are You Well Architected?

The AWS Well-Architected Framework is a set of criteria guiding reviews for workloads in the cloud. The framework is directive, but not prescriptive, as to how to solve the problem, and should be used to ensure that all key aspects of a workload’s lifecycle, security, resilience and operability are considered.
