This Guidance helps you implement SimpleIOT, an intuitive system for creating cloud-connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices from the ground up. SimpleIOT helps you rapidly set up a fully functional serverless Internet of Things (IoT) framework in an AWS account. It supports rapid creation of complete, secure, connected devices that send and receive data to the cloud in near real-time.

Well-Architected Pillars

The AWS Well-Architected Framework helps you understand the pros and cons of the decisions you make when building systems in the cloud. The six pillars of the Framework allow you to learn architectural best practices for designing and operating reliable, secure, efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable systems. Using the AWS Well-Architected Tool, available at no charge in the AWS Management Console, you can review your workloads against these best practices by answering a set of questions for each pillar.

The architecture diagram above is an example of a Solution created with Well-Architected best practices in mind. To be fully Well-Architected, you should follow as many Well-Architected best practices as possible.
