AWS Well Architected Review Process

Afterwards, you involve relevant stakeholders and prepare the needed workload information for ByteSource. This helps getting everybody on board, clarifies expectations and sets a timeline


The review is a conversational style architectural review of your workload between a ByteSource professional and the customer, based upon the AWS Well-Architected Framework. Reviews can be done on customer site or remotely and usually take about one business day


After the Well-Architected Review is conducted, ByteSource provides you with a written report of potential risks and issues, categorized in the 5 pillars. Including a tailor-made improvement plan with a prioritized roadmap, giving you concrete guidance on what to do next. The report will be presented and delivered within 3-5 business days following the review.
