How CloudCheckr Supports the AWS Well-Architected Framework

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has provided the AWS Well-Architected Framework to enhance the security, reliability, efficiency, and cost optimization of their customers’ cloud environments. When combined with a cloud management platform like CloudCheckr, cloud managers can use the AWS Well-Architected Framework to ensure that their AWS environment follows best practices.

These best practices fall into what AWS defines as the five pillars of architectural excellence:

  • Operational Excellence
  • Security
  • Reliability
  • Performance Efficiency
  • Cost Optimization

CloudCheckr’s 600 Best Practice Checks cover areas of all five pillars. This guide explains what each pillar entails and how CloudCheckr supports the AWS Well-Architected Framework.
