Below is the Output Screen of the Trusted Advisor Displaying the best practices you should consider


I got introduce to Trusted Advisor Explorer

Trusted Advisor Explorer is delivered as a CloudFormation template, leverages several AWS services and products to provision the infrastructure. The solution collects and aggregates cost optimization recommendations from AWS Trusted Advisor and AWS Resource Groups Data Editor originating from multiple AWS accounts into a single data lake.

The user can then use her AWS Quicksight to create custom dashboards and visualize the data.
The solution also allows users to query data using Amazon Athena, Amazon's interactive query service for S3-based data.

Below Screen Shot Devides the architecture into 3 different parts

  1. Retreive Multi account : It collects data from all the account in an organization
  2. Connects Existing Information : It connects
  3. Visualize and modify:




The image below shows the various filters that can be applied in the QuickSight dashboard for a more detailed view.


To more easily discover the information needed to answer Well Architect review questions and reduce review time, newly added integrations with well architected tool willl help For more information on the release, please see below.



This year in reinvent 2022 there are new checks included in Trusted advisor from AWS resilience Hub for making our application or system more resilience and fault tolerance


After the session, the speaker recommended enabling Trusted Advisor since it is free, leveraging other solutions such as Trusted Advisor Explorer and Trusted Advisor Organization Dashboard to make better decisions, and finally, suggested working with the aws account team to mitigate high-risk resilience issues.


Summary :

I think Trusted Advisor should really be a service we use every day to find and optimize our accounts. Using the Trusted Advisor Explorer, the use of graphs and quick is really a good addition to it. There were many questions from the participants in this chalk talk and I joined in my questions are in the list of explanations.

I forgot to ask in session about Difference about AWS Trusted Advisor Explorer and AWS Systems Manager Explorer which i will do research later.
