Posted by Ashlyn Fulton

 York, United Kingdom — May 8, 2018 Piksel Group, a global provider of professional and managed services, today announced it is one of the first UK businesses to be selected for AWS’ new Well-Architected Partner Programme.

AWS Well-Architected is a set of best practises and core strategies for reviewing critical workloads running on AWS, and consists of two key components, the Well-Architected Framework, and the Well-Architected Review.

Piksel Group has been recognised as one of the few AWS APN partners qualified to deliver reviews of critical workloads to customers in the UK. This allows Piksel Group to increase awareness of optimal architecture strategy and implementation, address critical foundational areas that are too-often neglected, and provide a consistent approach for evaluating architectures on AWS.

The Well-Architected framework has been developed to help cloud architects build the most secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure possible for their applications. This framework provides a consistent approach for customers and partners to evaluate architectures, and provides guidance to help implement designs that will scale with your application needs over time. The Review component is a free hour- session designed to look at and measure progress against those key areas.

Well-Architected enables customers to review and improve their cloud architectures and better understand the business impact of their design decisions even with the rapid pace of change. By applying Well-Architected to their environments, Piksel Group customers can benefit from fast build and deployment times, mitigating and lowering risks, more informed decisions on architecture and learn and embed AWS best practice into solutions.

“We are proud to be one of the first UK companies selected to be part of AWS’ Well-Architected Partner Programme. We are a trusted APN partner of AWS and the programme highlights our commitment to ensuring our customers’ critical workloads are aligned with AWS best practise,” said Mark Christie, Chief Technology Officer, Piksel Group. “We remain committed to meeting pillars of the Well-Architected framework and ensuring our customers get the most from their public cloud deployments.”

As an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, Piksel Group has been selected to help scale up AWS’s ability to conduct these reviews. As a trusted partner and AWS expertise Piksel Group can offer Reviews and Professional service that follow AWS’ highest standards. As a Premier APN partner Piksel Group has access to funding programs to offset the cost if opportunities are identified to improve customers’ workloads.

The AWS Well Architected programme will be available across the Piksel Group including: Piksel, Foundry, The Retail Cloud Team, Carelink, The Voyage Team and Digital Sense.
