AWS Well-Architected Program

    The Well-Architected Program allows us to work together with you to improve your deployed application on AWS, validating your needs and the current configuration. Its purpose: optimize your architecture in the cloud as well as the direct costs in AWS infrastructures and services and the indirect costs with possible automations that may positively affect your daily operations.

    Linke, officially certified with the AWS Well-Architected Partner Status, offers free custom architecture reviews with the guarantee of being able to provide proven specialized technical competence and success with clients to identify if workloads meet the five pillars of the Well-Architected Framework: operational excellence, safety, reliability in the event of failure, performance efficiency and cost optimization.

    WellArchitected

    With this service and thanks to a team specialized in understanding, identifying and applying improvements to any application over AWS, Linke can undertake the continuous improvement process in a scalable and flexible way, mitigating incidents and without any additional cost.

    Performance Efficiency

    It makes efficient use of computing resources to meet requirements and always maintain efficiency as technology evolves.

    How do we do it?

    1 - Book a meeting with us.

    Fill in the form and we will contact you immediately. If you prefer to directly schedule the session with one of our certified architects, use our service chat.

    2 - We identify together the workloads to be analyzed as well as the necessary people to be involved.

    15-20 minute meeting maximum. Here we will select a productive workload on AWS. On this load, a session of about 2-3 hours will be held with our team of Solution Architects and one or more people from your team who know the architecture and infrastructure on which the workload to be reviewed has been implemented.

    3 - We schedule the analysis session.
    4 - We execute the analysis session.

    The session is aimed at reviewing the 5 basic pillars of the platform: Operation, Security, Reliability, Performance and Cost Optimization, with a series of questions asked by our architects. The approximate duration of the session ranges from 2-4 hours. Once the session is done, our team performs an analysis based on the information obtained and prepares a report detailing the points of improvement and the weaknesses found.

    5 - Delivery of the report.

    Detailing the conclusions of the analysis and identifying mitigation tasks that we will carry out from Linke as part of the project.

    6 - Remediation Actions.

    From all the improvement points highlighted in the report, we will select 25% and apply the necessary measures to solve them. These measures can range from creating or adapting a procedure, to performing some kind of activation or configuration of an AWS service, or to some cost improvement.

    7 - Your Funding Reward.
    Once the Well-Architected review and mitigation actions have been executed, Linke as a Well-Architected authorized partner, will be able to process your AWS voucher -worth up to $5,000 in credits- to be applied on your account as a thank you for having participated in the program.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What people or roles should participate in the WAR Session?
    Responsible for the AWS platform, responsible for the workload / application, responsible for operations, infrastructure / solutions architect, security / network specialist ... In this way, all the points evaluated during the Well-Architected session can be covered.
    What is an “HRI” and what impact could they have on the platform?
    High Risk Incidents (HRIs) are determined based on the general best practices recommended by AWS. Its impact on the workload will depend on the corresponding pillar and can include points such as: critical security holes, DR not implemented, lack of root-cause-analysis procedures or not established evaluation metrics.
    What does Linke offer regarding the resolution of the HRIs?
    Linke, as an AWS certified partner, is committed to mitigating a minimum of 25% of HRIs detected within the WAR (well-architected reviews) program.
    Who decides which HRI’s should be mitigated?
    Linke will prepare a proposal with the recommended HRIs to be mitigated. This selection is made based on a criticality analysis and effort required to implement the solution. If necessary, an agreement can be reached with the organization to make changes to the selection.
    What about the rest of the Incidents (High and Medium) detected?
    The organization can request from Linke a statement-of-work with the effort and cost analysis of applying solutions to the agreed Incidents.
    What capabilities and qualifications does the Linke team have to conduct Well Architected Reviews (WAR)?
    The Linke team in charge of carrying out the WARs has current AWS Professional certifications, in addition to having participated as architects and technicians in multiple projects and managed services in solutions deployed on AWS.
    Why is access to the AWS console required? And what kind of permissions are required?
    To get the maximum benefit from the session, it is recommended that the Linke team be able to review the platform in advance. Viewing permissions are required on the components of the workload to be analyzed and permissions to generate the Well-Architected report.
