Framework Upgrade

The AWS Well-Architected Framework is updated as new services are introduced, existing best practices for cloud-based systems are refined, and new best practices are added. When a new version of the framework is made available, AWS WA Tool is upgraded to reflect the latest best practices.

A framework upgrade might consist of any combination of:

  • Adding new questions or best practices

  • Removing old questions or practices that are no longer recommended

  • Updating existing questions or best practices
