It does not take a genius to click together an environment in the AWS console. It is not even that difficult to make it actually do what you want. However, as the old saying goes, there is more than one way to skin a cat. Looking at the plethora of building blocks AWS offers, you want to end up with an architecture that is secure, reliable, performant, cost-efficient and operated by the best.
We design, build and review AWS environments based on the AWS Well-Architected framework. This guarantees that the above architectural requirements are met.
AWS released 1430 significant new services and features in 2017. Keeping track of all those announcements is important. We know our managed services customers, we know what workloads they run, and with each new AWS release, we will check whether it can be used to optimize existing environments. Cloud Architecture is an ongoing task. Designs can and will change over time. That way you can be sure you will always have the biggest bang for your buck.
