The Microsoft Azure Well-Architected Framework (WAF) assessment is used to quickly validate your current architecture against best practice.
The Microsoft Azure Well-Architected Framework (WAF) assessment is designed to provide clients with high-level guidance and best practices to help you maintain and improve secure, reliable, performant, cost optimised, and operationally excellent applications in the Azure Cloud. It is based on Azure Cloud Adoption Framework.
The assessment covers the following pillars:
Security: The ability to protect information, systems, and assets while delivering business value through risk assessments and mitigation strategies
Reliability: The ability of a system to recover from infrastructure or service failures, dynamically acquire computing resources to meet demand, and mitigate disruptions such as misconfigurations or transient network issues
Performance Efficiency: The ability to use computing resources efficiently to meet system requirements, and to maintain that efficiency as demand changes and technologies evolve
Cost Optimization: The ability to avoid or eliminate unneeded cost or suboptimal resources
Operational Excellence: The ability to run and monitor systems to deliver business value and to continually improve supporting processes and procedures
Using a standardised methodology, we work closely with clients to thoroughly review the workload resulting in a detailed report outlining the actionable items and prescriptive guidance for our key architectural pillars and how to resolve architectural concerns.
