With growing workloads & data in the cloud, enterprises are running into the challenge of optimization. As of 2021, about 50% of all enterprise-level data in the world was stored in the cloud, as found by data aggregator Statista. IT leaders have also critically prioritized cloud security enhancement, cloud native design adoption, workload adjustment with changing business priorities & cloud costs control.

 

To achieve optimized cloud availability & meet the requirements of organizations, AWS has introduced the AWS Well-Architected Framework that helps organizations build the most secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure possible for their applications.
