The best cloud providers offer Well Architecture Frameworks to help you implement your solutions, conforming to a large set of best practices across a wide range of topic areas. Well-Architected Framework comes with a number of design principles for building good systems on the cloud and includes questions and answers on each pillar on which it is built, providing guidance on how to deal with practical topics. This is how Alibaba Cloud promotes its Three Pillars Well-Architectured Framework.
Alibaba Cloud offers a set of guidelines and questions that allow you to follow best practices from reliability, security, and performance consistently. The three pillars of architecture on Alibaba Cloud will help you review, evaluate, and improve the quality of your workload.
The reliability pillar focuses on Alibaba Cloud's capabilities of ensuring business continuity from failures. It explains how to maintain the high availability of your environment and recover from disasters and failures, meeting resourcing demands put upon your infrastructure dynamically and automatically. The reliability best practices are foundations, change management, and failure management. Alibaba Cloud offers the high-availability services listed below:
The security pillar focuses on information security related to shared security responsibilities, security compliance and privacy, Alibaba Cloud infrastructure, and security architecture. Alibaba Cloud strives to provide customers with consistent, reliable, secure, and compliant cloud computing services, providing confidentiality, integrity, and availability for their systems and data.
The performance efficiency pillar focuses on the efficient use of computing resources to meet various requirements and maintain efficiency as requirements change and technologies evolve. It recommends some principles to follow to achieve the desired performance efficiency:
Different cloud architects can create completely different architectures for the same business requirement. There is no definite and consistent way to confirm if the architecture meets the needs of modern business applications, such as security, reliability, and performance. As the business grows or changes over time, the workloads also need to scale and adapt to the new business requirements, adding considerable overhead and complexity to the technology architecture. Alibaba Cloud’s Well-Architecture Framework helps cloud architects build the most secure, resilient, and efficient infrastructure possible for their applications through the three pillars. The three pillars show a consistent approach for customers and partners to evaluate architectures and provide guidance to implement designs that scale with the needs of the application over time.
Many different best practices cover the complete scope of deployment and operations of how to deploy new applications and solutions effectively within Alibaba Cloud.
