The passions that best describe Kenzan back end developer Walter Schlosser include video games, technology, science and yo-yos! A graduate in engineering physics and computer science from Colorado School of Mines, Walter strives to continually learn and improve his problem solving skills to develop rock-solid applications with his teammates. Walter’s interests have recently expanded into the world of Docker and containerization, Kubernetes, and Node.js. When he isn’t hacking away on his Raspberry Pi backed Docker Swarm, you can find Walter competing with his friends in Super Smash Bros., reading an intriguing science article, or relaxing with his favorite return top.
Kenzan specializes in building scalable, data-driven solutions, and we often leverage the DataStax Enterprise (DSE) for customers that have high expectations for both performance and value. That means making careful, informed choices when designing the cloud infrastructure that applications run on.
Controlling costs is always a priority for businesses that rely on AWS for running DSE. With AWS, it can be tempting to solve performance issues simply by adding more resources until the problem goes away. However, this “solution” results in increased costs which quickly add up over time.
In this co-authored white paper, Kenzan and DataStax identify some of the key factors to consider when building out infrastructure on AWS, outlining practical steps you can take to optimize performance with DSE on AWS while keeping costs in check.
