Performance efficiency in the cloud is composed of four areas:

  • Selection

  • Review

  • Monitoring

  • Tradeoffs

Take a data-driven approach to selecting a high-performance architecture. Gather data on all aspects of the architecture, from the high-level design to the selection and configuration of resource types. By reviewing your choices on a recurring basis, you can ensure that you are taking advantage of the continually evolving AWS Cloud. Monitoring ensures that you are aware of any deviance from expected performance and can take action on it. Finally, you can make tradeoffs in your architecture to improve performance, such as using compression or caching, or relaxing consistency requirements.

The review and trade-offs best practice areas will not be described in this document because the practices from the AWS Well-Architected Framework still apply.
