THE AZURE ARCHITECTED ASSESSMENT
Having properly-architected systems increases the likelihood of business success, so BJSS developed the Azure Architecture Assessment (AAA) as a way of providing an objective and consistent approach to evaluating existing systems against the Cloud.
AN ASSESSMENT OF FIVE PILLARS
- The Security Pillar encompasses the ability to protect information, systems, and assets while delivering business value through risk assessments and mitigation strategies.
- The Reliability Pillar encompasses the ability of a system to recover from infrastructure or service disruptions, dynamically acquire computing resources to meet demand, and mitigate disruptions such as misconfigurations or transient network issues.
- The Performance Efficiency Pillar focuses on the efficient use of computing resources to meet requirements and maintaining that efficiency as demand changes and technologies evolve.
- The Cost Optimisation Pillar assesses the ability to avoid or eliminate unneeded costs or suboptimal resources and use those savings on differentiated benefits for the business.
- The Operational Excellence Pillar includes operational practices and procedures used to manage production workloads. This includes how planned changes are executed, as well as responses to unexpected operational events.
