  3. 3. Why would I want to apply the AWS Well-Architected Framework? Build and deploy faster Lower or mitigate risks Make informed decisions Learn AWS best practices
  4. 4. A Mechanism for your Cloud Journey Learn Measure Improve
  5. 5. Pillars of AWS Well-Architected Security Reliability Performance Efficiency Cost Optimization Operational Excellence
  6. 6. Pillar- Specific Design Principles General Design Principles Design Principles Automate responses to security events: Monitor and automatically trigger responses to event-driven, or condition-driven, alerts.
  7. 7. General Design Principles Stop guessing your capacity needs Test systems at production scale Automate to make architectural experimentation easier Allow for evolutionary architectures Drive architectures using data Improve through game days
  8. 8. Design Principles for Operational Excellence Perform operations as code Annotate documentation Make frequent, small, reversible changes Refine operations procedures frequently Anticipate failure Learn from all operational failures
  9. 9. Design Principles for Security Implement a strong identity foundation Enable traceability Apply security at all layers Automate security best practices Protect data in transit and at rest Prepare for security events
