AWS Well Architected Framework Reviews and the AWS Well Architected Tool promote cloud security best practices - 6pillars brings continuous cloud best practices to life with automation.

Improve posture
Reduce costs
Drive revenue



AWS' Well-Architected Framework helps cloud architects and developers alike build secure, high-performing, resilient, efficient and now more sustainable infrastructure for their applications and workloads.


AWS' thought leadership in best practice (the Well-Architected Framework) is now based on six pillars:

operational excellence



performance efficiency

cost optimisation


AWS' Well-Architected Framework, Well Architected Reviews and the AWS Well Architected Tool all provide a consistent approach for customers and partners to evaluate architectures, and implement designs that can scale over time.

The new Sustainability pillar has been designed to help organisations learn, measure, and improve their workloads using environmental best practices for cloud computing.

Similar to the other pillars of Operational Excellence, Security, Reliability, Performance and Cost Optimisation, the Sustainability Pillar is aimed at evaluating the design, architecture, and implementation of workloads to reduce their energy consumption and improve efficiency. The new Sustainability pillar is designed as a tool to track a customer's journey towards best practices that support a sustainable future for workloads in the cloud.

6pillars delivers cost effective automation that makes continuous alignment with cloud security best practices a reality.
