Insight UK Awarded AWS Well-Architected Partner Status
Insight UK recognised for delivering AWS best practice and design principles across security, operational excellence, performance efficiency, reliability and cost optimisation.
Insight, a Fortune 500-ranked global provider of Intelligent Technology Solutions, today announced it has earned the AWS Well-Architected Partner status, in recognition of its expertise in building and deploying workloads in Amazon Web Services. With European enterprises investing heavily in cloud, spending on average £29.48M in 2018, the newly-awarded status means organisations can trust Insight to deliver expert consultancy, review their AWS architecture, and help remediate any issues to optimise their environment.
“The AWS Well-Architected status reaffirms Insight’s commitment to helping clients put in place the optimal architecture for their applications on AWS,” said Ozioma Uzoegwu, Lead Architect, AWS Practice at Insight. “Building and deploying workloads on AWS is similar to constructing a building. If the foundation is not solid, structural problems can undermine stability, integrity and ultimately usability. Whether helping clients build their AWS infrastructure from scratch, or advising those who already have architecture in place, Insight gives organisations confidence that their implementation is as cost-effective, secure, reliable and efficient as possible and follows operational best practice.”
As an AWS Well-Architected Partner, Insight offers Well-Architected Review and Well-Architected Remediation services. The free Well-Architected Review assesses organisations’ AWS architecture, allowing Insight to identify and recommend security, reliability and efficiency improvements – many of which will also help to optimise costs. If organisations wish to implement these improvements, the paid-for Well-Architected Remediation service will help ensure workloads on AWS are optimised and in line with AWS best practices and design principles. Any clients that choose the Well-Architected Remediation service will also receive funding in the form of AWS Credits, reducing the cost of improvements and making a fully optimised environment more attainable.
In order to earn its AWS Well-Architected Partner status, Insight had to meet AWS’s workload, certification and training requirements. In particular, it has had to ensure that it is following the five pillars of the AWS Well-Architected Framework:
1. Operational Excellence – running and monitoring systems to deliver business value and to continually improve supporting processes and procedures
2. Security – protecting information, systems and assets while delivering business value through risk assessments and mitigation strategies
3. Reliability – ensuring systems can recover from infrastructure or service disruptions; dynamically acquiring computing resources to meet demand; and mitigating disruptions such as configurations or transient network issues
4. Performance Efficiency – using computing resources efficiently to meet system requirements and maintaining that efficiency as demand changes and technologies evolve
5. Cost Optimisation – avoiding or eliminating unneeded cost or suboptimal resources
