Well Architected Framework Pillar Specific Design Principles


Hello AWS community!

As I delve into the Well-Architected Framework Skillbuilder course, the recurring theme of design principles for specific pillars has left me a bit perplexed. I find myself struggling to grasp the concept and differentiate between pillar-specific design principles and pillar-specific best practices. I'm genuinely keen to comprehend the functions of these pillar-specific design principles and would greatly appreciate insights from your experiences.

Thanks in advance for sharing your expertise!

Hello Julian,

You can think in a hierarchical fashion about these concepts:

Pillar > Design Principles > Best Practices

The Best Practices will all be influenced and descendant from the Design Principles related to the Pillar and also the general for the Framework itself. Per example:

PERF01-BP01 Learn about and understand available cloud services and features is the first best practice. At play here is understand cloud services and features, so it applies the pillar specific principle Democratize advanced technologies and we can argue also, Consider mechanical sympathy.
