Build using a

Structured approach

The Well-Architected Framework has been developed to help cloud architects build secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure for their applications. Based on six pillars — operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, cost optimization and sustainability — the Framework provides a consistent approach for the evaluation and implementation of well designed architectures, that can scale over time.

The AWS Well-Architected Framework includes strategies to help you compare your workload against best practices, and by engaging Mantalus experts – you can obtain guidance to produce stable and efficient systems so you can focus on functional requirements.

The Framework


This AWS published documentation here introduces you to the AWS Well-Architected Framework, covering key concepts, design principles for architecting in the cloud, and the six pillars. The appendix includes the current questions for reviewing a workload using the Framework.


The operational excellence pillar focuses on running and monitoring systems to deliver business value, and continually improving processes and procedures. Key topics include managing and automating changes, responding to events, and defining standards to successfully manage daily operations.


The security pillar focuses on protecting information & systems. Key topics include confidentiality and integrity of data, identifying and managing who can do what with privilege management, protecting systems, and establishing controls to detect security events.


The reliability pillar focuses on the ability to prevent, and quickly recover from failures to meet business and customer demand. Key topics include foundational elements around setup, cross project requirements, recovery planning, and how we handle change.


The performance efficiency pillar focuses on using IT and computing resources efficiently. Key topics include selecting the right resource types and sizes based on workload requirements, monitoring performance, and making informed decisions to maintain efficiency as business needs evolve.


Cost Optimization focuses on avoiding un-needed costs. Key topics include understanding and controlling where money is being spent, selecting the most appropriate and right number of resource types, analyzing spend over time, and scaling to meet business needs without overspending.
