How AWS Can Help You Prepare For Problems
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a comprehensive cloud computing services platform that provides technologies to enable businesses to improve through its five pillars of Well-Architected Framework: Operational Excellence, Security, Reliability, Performance Efficiency, and Cost Optimization.
At WOLK, we have a team of AWS experts who can help your business smoothly transition IT to the cloud. All our projects begin with a Well-Architected Review, giving clients a clear indication of what framework is best suited to their needs.
Whatever your workload, AWS can help prepare a business for potential problems through the first pillar: Operational Excellence.
The First Pillar: Operational Excellence
Within the first pillar, there are four key focuses for operational excellence: organisation, prepare, operate, evolve. Through this pillar, AWS helps businesses develop, run workloads, understand insights, and consistently improve the actions that add value to a business.
A major part of fulfilling the operational excellence pillar is preparing for problems so your team members can deal with them quickly and efficiently. By performing exercises that identify potential issues before they occur, you can mitigate them. AWS can test workloads to probe problems.
AWS does this in three steps:
AWS helps you design your workload so you can fully understand each area’s performance. You can do this through metrics or logged data. AWS services, such as data analytics programs, can then be used to record and transfer performance information, allowing you to track progress.
By designing a system that provides fast feedback, you can subsequently act quicker to prepare or prevent problems you foresee. AWS can help you create and adopt effective troubleshooting measures to reduce the impact of any problems.
AWS allows users to access their entire workload in the form of code. This makes it safe and easy to develop and adopt processes to deal with or reduce problems. For example, CloudFormation uses sandbox development to test and adopt infrastructure to give users more operational control.
Workloads and processes must be continuously evaluated to determine problematic areas. You can implement AWS to use runbooks that log routine procedures, evaluate them, and find solutions to mitigate problems.
