Step 3: Review the Improvement Plan

Based on your answers to the workload review, the AWS Well-Architected Tool identifies areas of high and medium risk as measured against the best practices in the AWS Well-Architected Framework.

For this workload review, AWS WA Tool has identified three high risk items and one medium risk item.

We update the Improvement status for the workload to indicate that we have not started workload improvements yet.

For this improvement plan, we want to focus on the Reliability pillar last and trade the priorities of Performance Efficiency and Cost Optimization. To change the priority, choose Edit, drag the pillars into the order you want, and choose Save.

The Improvement items section shows the recommended improvement items identified in our workload. The questions are ordered based on the pillar priority we set, with any high risk items listed first followed by any medium risk items.

Expand Recommended improvement items to show the suggested best practices for a question. Each recommended improvement action links to detailed expert guidance to help you eliminate, or at least mitigate, the risks identified.
