Since 2015, Amazon Web Services has been working with a team of solution architects who help customers make the most of AWS’ capabilities. Today during the AWS re:Invent conference in Las Vegas, the company announced that it is coming up with a new tool for this purpose.

The Well Arcitected tool is designed to help customers find the most practical applications of AWS for themselves. In addition, they do not need a human consultant. That’s what Amazon CTO Werner Vogels told us during his keynote speech at the AWS re:Invent conference.

Too many questions

According to Vogels it is very complicated to help the many thousands of customers all with human teams. Especially when it comes to ensuring that all the different customers actually benefit the most from the possibilities of AWS, this can be complicated. In addition, it is also difficult to estimate how many team members are needed for this.

Despite the fact that AWS works with certified partners to ensure that they are able to meet the demand as much as possible, this does not appear to be enough for the time being. This is why it was decided to develop a service that can help customers measure how well they are doing in areas such as operations, security, reliability, cost optimisation and performance. Customers can use the tool and receive a report on how well they are doing with respect to these five factors.

I see it as a way to help you check if you’re using the cloud properly, and to make sure you keep using it properly, Jeff Barr writes in a blog post about the new feature. So by analyzing the systems and asking customers to answer a number of questions, AWS can automatically help customers make better use of their cloud.
