Well-Architected Review (WAR)
The Well-Architected Review is an architectural assessment based upon the AWS Well-Architected Framework. The AWS Well-Architected framework has been developed to help cloud architects build the most secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure possible for their applications.
The review is a conversation between a qualified Version 1 professional and the customer, it is not an audit. The output is a report which includes recommendations to meet best practice and increase business value delivered by cloud.
The Version 1 approach to conducting an Well-Architected Reviews involves a short, high-value engagement, implementing an AWS Well-Architected framework. AWS will also support customers with usage credits to encourage the implementation of remediations after any review carried out with Version 1.
