Well-Architected Reviews

Actions speak louder than words, so we prove our value quickly. We start with a Well-Architected Review (WAR) that follows industry best practices. Based on the WAR output, we provide a prioritized list of next steps including estimates. This is a proven, low-risk approach allowing you to get to know us — and us to get to know you and your environment.


Workloads evaluated against industry-standard cloud pillars

A Well-Architected Framework allows businesses to build and operate secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure for their applications and workloads. Based on five pillars — operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, and cost optimization — Well-Architected provides a measurable approach for us to evaluate architectures and implement designs that will meet your business and technology needs today and tomorrow.

How it works

1. You provide us with prerequisite information

2. You then select review participants

3. We then conduct a ½ to 1-day review session

4. We develop a comprehensive report and improvement plan following the review

From there, you can decide to implement the recommendations. Credit funding may be available from some public cloud vendors for remediation. Actual remediation work performed by Deft will have associated costs.

We will then perform periodic checks on the assessment to improve the score and work on recommendations
