Cloud Infrastructure Design and Reviews

If you think good architecture is expensive, try bad architecture. - Brian Foote & Joseph Yoder, Big Ball of Mud, 1999

As a business owner or technical lead, you have to make sure your cloud infrastructure is designed and maintained properly.

But how do you know if your cloud infrastructure is "well-architected"? You need help with the design and maintenance of your cloud infrastructure so that you can focus on growing your business.

Pilotcore is here for you! We leverage AWS architecture best practices to design new solutions and conduct thorough infrastructure reviews that expose weaknesses, find areas for improvement, and uncover opportunities for optimization.

Find out how we can help you migrate to AWS or optimize if you're already there.

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 AWS certified cloud architects serve small to medium enterprises by bringing their expertise to bear on your IT challenges. Learn more about us.

Your Custom Blueprint

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.

Cost Reduction

Employing techniques like right-sizing and reserved instances opens new opportunities to cut costs without sacrifice.

How Does Our Cloud Architecture Design Service Work?

Step 1

Analyze Your Existing Architecture

Your current state in the cloud may be costing you more money than it should, it might not be as efficient or secure as you require. We start by reviewing your existing architecture to understand where you are now and identify opportunities for improvement. If you're adopting cloud for the first time we'll analyze your workloads to help inform the design of your future environment(s) in the cloud.

Step 2

Visual Diagram and Recomendations

You and your team need to fully understand how your enviornments are architected, and there is no better way to communicate that than through an architecture diagram. This step helps get everyone on the same page whether the goal is optimizing an existing environment or building a new one. 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.

Step 3


The next step is to implement our recommendations and build the solution that solves the challenges you are facing, whether that is cost optimization, improving a hybrid cloud architecture, adding load balancing to improve availability and elasticity of your workloads, improving cloud security, and more.

Step 4

Monitor, Iterate, Enhance

Once we've deployed your architecture, the next step is to observe the environment(s), make improvements, add gold plating (the non-critical nice-to-haves) and move on to iterating over the next phase of your cloud strategy as applicable. We're with you as your needs evolve and expand.


We've been asked some interesting questions by our clients about our aws cloud architecture design, 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.

The term "cloud native" refers to an application architecture using tools and principles unique to the cloud. Please see our blog post What Is Cloud Native? A Primer 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 to learn more!
