Microsoft Azure: Well Architected Framework (WAF) Review

Moving or adopting services to Azure can be easy, but are things set up right?

There are few businesses that haven’t at least tried Microsoft Azure services. To many, Azure is just a co-location service where virtual machines are deployed, or data storage is consumed.

For others, using Azure’s native Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) capabilities is the primary attraction of this globally available service.

Whatever the reasons, most Azure adoption grows organically rather than through a fully verified adoption plan. This can mean that Azure use is not optimised or setup in the most efficient, secure way.

That’s where the Azure Well Architected Framework Review service from NAK comes into focus.

The Azure Well-Architected Framework (WAF) Review from NAK helps to:

  • Minimise the reputational and legal risks from the security of your Azure solution. 
  • Reduce your Azure operating costs. 
  • Increase user productivity and satisfaction with your Azure-hosted solution.
