Starting with AWS is a straightforward process that's accessible to anyone. However, IT departments can unintentionally overlook crucial aspects while configuring their AWS cloud environments. These oversights can result in longer maintenance times or create severe security and financial vulnerabilities.

As an AWS consultancy with years of experience under our belts, we offer a no cost, no obligation 6-point AWS inspection designed to help small and medium sized businesses. The 6-points we evaluate a business on are:

  1. Security
  2. Cost
  3. Reliability
  4. Performance
  5. Operations
  6. Sustainability

What do we find when we conduct these inspections? All kinds of things. Here are some of the most common:


  • Improper Security Group setup
  • IAM roles left open
  • Improper VPN design and exposed databases
  • Services setup to use the root user


  • No billing alerts set up, which means no cost controls
  • Poor cost optimization.
  • Using the wrong AWS services causing overspending


  • Using the wrong AWS services causing performance issues
  • Not understanding how to do logging/auditing to properly assess performance
  • Not understanding good industry benchmarks for performance


  • Backups non-existent or not tested
  • Lack of 24/7 monitoring
  • Using the wrong AWS services causing reliability issues
  • Not understanding how to do logging/auditing
