Go build in the Cloud 1

When you build on AWS,there are design principles and best practises that can help in building efficient workloads.The Well Architected framework captures this beautifully:The Well Architected framework defines architectural best practices for designing and operating reliable, secure, efficient, and cost-effective workloads in the cloud and help in benchmarking this practices and process.There are six pillars that exist in the framework this include

  • Operational Excellence

  • Security

  • Reliability

  • Performance Efficiency

  • Cost Optimization

  • Sustainability
    A pillar that should be given priority is security,building secure workloads is critical for business solutions and organisation.
    Implementing the least privilege is pertinent in ensuring a secure foundation.
    The need to implement security into every layer cannot be overemphasised as this is one of the advantages in building in the Cloud.
    Automated security measures count towards ensuring workloads are secure,encrypting data in transit and rest boosts the confidence of the organisation using the solution.
    This ensures that data is accessed by those authorized and authenticated to do so making incidence management easier and swifter.
