Architecture selection - Performance Efficiency Pillar

Architecture selection

The optimal solution for a particular workload varies, and solutions often combine multiple approaches. Well-Architected workloads use multiple solutions and allow different features to improve performance.

AWS resources are available in many types and configurations, which makes it easier to find an approach that closely matches your needs. You can also find options that are not easily achievable with on-premises infrastructure. For example, a managed service such as Amazon DynamoDB provides a fully managed NoSQL database with single-digit millisecond latency at any scale.

This focus area shares guidance and best practices on how to select efficient, high-performing cloud resources and architecture patterns.
