AWS Well-Architected Tool Documentation

What is AWS Well-Architected Tool?

AWS Well-Architected Tool (AWS WA Tool) is a service in the cloud designed to provide a consistent process for measuring your architecture against AWS recommended best practices. 

You can use AWS WA Tool to document and measure your workload in reference to the AWS Well-Architected Framework. The framework is designed to provide a consistent approach for measuring architectures and to provide guidance for you to implement designs that scale with your needs over time. 

In addition to AWS-recommended practices, you can use custom lenses to measure your workload using your own best practices. You can tailor the questions in a custom lens to help you meet the needs of your organization.
