Cloud Infrastructure Design and Reviews
How do you know if your cloud infrastructure is "well-architected?" We leverage AWS architecture best practices to conduct thorough infrastructure reviews that expose weaknesses, find areas for improvement, and discover opportunities for optimization.
A Solid Architectural Foundation in the Cloud
AWS Well-Architected Framework
We carefully apply the AWS Well-Architected Framework to ensure operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, and cost optimization.
Cloud Infrastructure Expertise
Making the most of cloud computing requires a skilled hand. Our cloud architects serve small to medium enterprises by bringing their expertise to bear on your enterprise IT challenges.
When systems become increasingly complex, we need to understand how all the moving parts connect. Architecture diagrams provide a blueprint for your engineers to consult while building out the infrastructure.
Communication is essential to consistent software design. Infrastructure Diagrams serve as a common point of reference to keep everyone on the same page.
Employing techniques like right-sizing and reserved instances opens new opportunities to cut costs without sacrifice.
How Does Our Cloud Architecture Reviews Service Work?
Analyze Your Existing Architecture
Your current state in the cloud may be costing you more money than it should, and might not be as effient or secure as you deserve. We start by reviewing your architecture to understand if you're getting good value for money.
You and your team need to fully understand how your architecture is set up, and there is no better way to communicate that than through an architecture diagram. We help you get everyone on the same page. You can't get to where you want to be tomorrow if you don't know where you are today.
If there are opportunities for improvement we will provide a report on our recommendations on how to improve your architecture to get the greatest value for money and improve security and stability.
If you would like us to implement our recommendations, we will design a plan to do that with minimal disruption.
We've been asked some interesting questions by our clients about our cloud architecture design and reviews, and have provided the answers for you here.
In the context of cloud, architecture refers to the network design, permissions, firewall settings, security groups, data storage, compute resources, monitoring tools, disaster recovery plans, and other components that go into a cloud environment. A cloud architect will usually produce an architecture design based on client requirements that will be used by engineers for the build and migration. Cloud computing architecture should be completed and approved in advance of any implementation.
The cloud refers to compute, storage and other resources provided on-demand using pay-as-you-go billing. Underpinning the cloud is a network of highly secure data centres with physical hardware. The cloud offers three service models, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-service (SaaS). Please see our blog post What Are the Different Types of Cloud Computing? for more information.
How Much Do Infrastructure Reviews Cost?
You'd be surprised at how much bang-for-your-buck you can get from a cloud infrastructure review. The cost depends on the scale of your architecture. Contact us for a free consultation.Free Consultation
