Learn from evolving cloud best practice and raise the standard of your own cloud architecture with targeted improvements.
A near-constant flow of new services and features from leading cloud vendors means there’s always scope to improve cloud architectures. However, it’s not easy to keep pace with the latest in best practice.
Well-Architected Reviews overcome this challenge. Their systematic and objective assessment of cloud architectures identifies where new tools and techniques could be advantageous. AWS and Azure environments alike can benefit from this structured approach which helps organisations raise standards in critical areas.
Well-Architected Frameworks from AWS and Azure each cover five areas of best practice, known as pillars. Our Well-Architected Reviews work holistically across all five pillars, or address them individually:
"DevOpsGroup helped us unlock new growth potential by identifying performance issues and prioritising those where changes could have the biggest impact."
Leon James, CTO at Motokiki
When DevOpsGroup conducts a Well-Architected Review we highlight changes that will deliver business benefits and suggest which should be implemented first. From enhancing cloud cost management to ensuring the highest levels of security or aiding continual improvement, whatever you need to achieve, we’ll help you get there.

An AWS Well-Architected Review was quickly followed by the implementation of expertly engineered CI/CD pipelines. We enabled Healthera to enhance the speed and reliability of software production, boosting performance and releasing developer time for innovation.Read more about Healthera's Cloud journey
We find the ever-changing nature of cloud best practice energising and exciting. And we love helping customers derive benefits from the latest new services and features.
Both follow a Well-Architected Framework with the same five pillars, but recommendations are aligned with the tools, services and capabilities of the relevant vendor.
A Well-Architected Review can be completed in a day as a standalone engagement, or carried out as part of a wider discovery phase. It’s a collaborative process, so feedback is provided in real-time then summarised at the end of the review.
They are handled by engineers who specialise in the relevant cloud platform. For customers in highly regulated fields such as financial services and healthcare, we’ll provide engineers that have experience in these sectors.
