  • Security that protects information, systems, and drives holistic risk assessments and mitigation strategies.
  • Reliability to ensure that the workload is optimized to perform its intended function and recover any infrastructure disruptions effectively.
  • Performance efficiency that uses IT and computing resources efficiently while new demands and evolving technologies continue to change the IT landscape. 
  • Cost optimization to avoid unnecessary costs or suboptimal resources.

“Building a secure, high-performing, and resilient infrastructure that can quickly respond to change is the foundation for establishing good architectural habits,” said Raymond Hennings, executive vice president, Virtusa. “By achieving the AWS Well-Architected Partner designation, we are strengthening our ability to elevate AWS performance for long-term application and workload vitality.”
