“I found the entire review process a genuinely enjoyable experience. The initial review was clear and concise. This was followed with a remediation list which was prioritised on based on my objectives. Throughout the remediation I was impressed with not only the knowledge of Ubertas, but the willingness to share it. I asked lots of questions about possible improvements and was given thought out answers and in some cases multiple approaches to my challenges. I would be more than happy to recommend others to have a AWS Well-Architected framework review and it being conducted by Ubertas.”

About Plusvital

Plusvital‘s vision is to be a leading global equine science company. To that end, they have an ongoing multi-million euro genomic and nutrition research program with a focus on developing innovative products based upon strong scientific research to help empower the performance of their clients.

Plusvital has been a leader in equine nutrition since its formation in 1975, growing out of Ireland’s world-famous racing and sport horse tradition.

Plusvital now exports to over 30 countries and continues to focus on innovative nutraceuticals to support some of the most successful riders and trainers across the globe.


With a small IT team, Plusvital were aware that their AWS architecture may not conform to all best practice, so wanted an independent review of their solution.

Their solution had undergone a number of changes as the product offering developed, so Plusvital were concerned that they may be paying for services that they were no longer using, as well as potential security risks.

Given that the IT team had a number of ongoing responsibilities, the AWS review was not something they had time to carry out themselves.


Ubertas Consulting conducted a Well-Architected framework review, which highlighted improvements that would benefit Plusvital within the five pillars (operational excellence, performance, reliability, security and cost optimisation) of the AWS Well-Architected Framework.


Ubertas Consulting implemented several recommendations to improve the security, scalability and performance of Plusvital all whilst optimising cost. Utilising centralised shared services and accounts also helped to reduce the management overhead for Plusvital’s technical team.

Plusvital now benefit from having a separate development account that is isolated from their production environment. AWS Account users are now managed centrally for all accounts. Both of these initiatives have increased security and reduced the teams overhead. There is also a forecasted 20% reduction in monthly expenditure by removing un-utilised infrastructure.
