AWS releases thousands of updates annually. It’s crucial to consistently review your architecture to ensure it is secure, reliable and efficient.

Leveraging the AWS Well-Architected Framework for Cost Optimisation

The Cost Optimisation pillar within the AWS Well-Architected Framework comprises of a range of guiding principles. 
Included below are some of the key focus areas we assist our customers with when optimising costs.

Right-Sizing Instances

Practising capacity management to minimise unused capacity

Increasing Elasticity

Scaling up & down to meet demand requirements allowing the ability to react dynamically resulting in monetary savings.

Leveraging the Right Pricing Model

Most workloads start off as on-demand, but as they travel through the customer lifecycle, reconsideration is necessary for the production and growth phases.

Leveraging the Right Storage Class

Reviewing how often you access your data, whether it be daily or yearly, dictates which type of storage is necessary.

Mechanisms for Cost Optimisation

Incorporates all of the processes and mechanisms that complement the four other pillars.

Are you Well-Architected?

So how does this translate into cost saving?

The AWS Well-Architected Framework provides a comprehensive set of resources including guiding principles, white papers and industry-specific tools. This Framework acts as best practice documents to utilise when reviewing your architecture.

Workloads, best practices and customer needs evolve over time, therefore  a Well-Architected review is not a one-time check. AWS recommends workloads be reviewed 6-12 monthly, at a minimum, depending on the nature of your workload.

What does it involve?

Undertaking a Well-Architected Review is a systematic approach to evaluate your architecture that identifies issues and opportunities within your environment.

During the Well-Architected Review, a cloud architect will take a collaborative approach to extensively review your workloads and architecture against the Well-Architected pillars and best practices, identifying improvements that can be made to reduce risks and increase value in a detailed report. You can act upon these results to remediate any outstanding issues.

Completing a Well-Architected Review allows for major cost savings, identification and remediation of vulnerabilities and improvement in the overall efficiency of your architecture.
