Get a Well Architected Review, free
To ensure their customers get the best from AWS, Amazon are funding specially trained partners from around the world to carry out — and act upon — Well Architected Reviews. Isotoma is one of those partners, which means our expert architects can help improve your AWS infrastructure for free!
The Well-Architected Framework is a distillation of Amazon’s own internal best-practice, published as a guide to help customers build the most secure, resilient, cost-effective and performant infrastructures for their applications. The Well Architected Review program has certified a handful of partners in this framework, giving them the tools and training to assess workloads against the five pillars of the framework.
The review itself takes a few hours and is usually carried out over the phone. Once we’re done you’ll get a detailed report that outlines any recommended actions. If required (and amazingly 96% of WARs produce critical recommendations!) you will then get up to 4 days of our time to implement those recommendations, all funded by Amazon. And all to ensure that you’re getting the best from your AWS experience.
