AWS re:Invent 2016: Achieving Agility by Following Well-Architected Framework Principles (ARC203)
The AWS Well-Architected Framework enables customers to understand best practices around security, reliability, performance, and cost optimization when building systems on AWS. This approach helps customers make informed decisions and weigh the pros and cons of application design patterns for the cloud. In this session, you'll learn how National Instruments used the Well-Architected Framework to follow AWS guidelines and best practices. By developing a strategy based on the AWS Well-Architected Framework, National Instruments was able to triple the number of applications running in the cloud without additional head count, significantly increase the frequency of code deployments, and reduce deployment times from two weeks to a single day. As a result, National Instruments was able to deliver a more scalable, dynamic, and resilient LabVIEW platform with agility.
