Azure Well-Architected Review

Go from good to great with an Azure Well-Architected Review

Get insights into how you can improve your application’s architecture on Azure and identify possible risks before they eventuate. Our Well-Architected Framework (WAF) review is the best way to get expert advice on how your architecture stacks up and how you can go from good to great.

Gain valuable insights

We combine Microsoft’s Well-Architected framework with our team’s expert knowledge and extensive experience to provide you with truly unique insights. We have capability in both the application and platform spaces, meaning you’ll get a complete picture of your application.

Reduce risk & catch problems before they become one

Go beyond the standard risks identified in a security review and get a deep understanding of where potential pitfalls may exist in your architecture across all 5 WAF pillars. Reduce your risk profile and improve the security posture of your network, application and data. Together we will come up with a remediation plan for the top risks identified.

What is the Azure Well-Architected Framework?

The Azure Well-Architected Framework is a set of guiding tenets that can be used to improve the architectural quality of a workload. The framework consists of five pillars of architectural excellence:

  • Reliability
  • Security
  • Cost Optimisation
  • Operational Excellence
  • Performance Efficiency

There's no one-size-fits-all approach to designing an architecture, but there are some universal concepts that will apply regardless of the architecture, technology, or cloud provider. These concepts are not all-inclusive, but focusing on them will help build a reliable, secure, and flexible foundation for your application in line with Microsoft best practices.

At Azenix, this assessment goes beyond Microsoft’s standard Well-Architected Framework review as we apply our team’s expert knowledge and extensive experience over the top. This brings additional context, industry-specific insights and a focus on what is best for your specific application and organisation.

Does my business need one?

Our Well-Architected review involves in depth and hands-on workshops. Perhaps you haven’t carried out a health-check of your workloads since they were launched? Maybe you want to take advantage of one or more new Azure services – services your in-house teams may not yet be familiar with? Or, maybe you think your workloads are costing more than they should and are looking for better value for your spend?

Whatever the reason, the Well-Architected Review can help create a business case for re-architecting your workloads and can revolutionise how the Azure Cloud platform works for you.
