Using the Heimdall Proxy to Split Reads and Writes for Amazon Aurora and Amazon RDS

Horizontally scaling a SQL database involves separating the write-master from read-only servers. This allows the write server to perform dedicated write operations rather than processing redundant read queries. However, writing to one node and reading from another can result in inconsistent data due to synchronization delays. Heimdall Data offers a database proxy to help developers and architects achieve optimal scale from their Amazon RDS and Amazon Aurora environment without any application changes.

Building a Simple Serverless WebSocket with Stackery and AWS

With the addition of WebSocket support in Amazon API Gateway, we set out to build an AWS CloudFormation template to get the simplest WebSocket version. What we built was backed by an AWS Lambda function that responds directly to the client who initiated the request. We learned quite a few things along the way, and even ended up with an easy solution in Stackery for managing and deploying one of these simple WebSockets.

Calculating SaaS Cost Per Tenant: A PoC Implementation in an AWS Kubernetes Environment

In a SaaS environment, the compute, storage, and bandwidth resources are often shared among tenants, but this makes it challenging to deduce per tenant cost. A SaaS application running on a Kubernetes cluster on AWS adds a layer of further complexity as far as calculating the per tenant cost. Kubernetes is great at abstracting away the underlying pool of hardware. It almost gives us an illusion of having access to a single large compute resource.

Improving Application Performance with No Code Changes Using Heimdall’s Database Proxy for Amazon Redshift

Analyzing Performance and Cost of Large-Scale Data Processing with AWS Lambda

There are many tools available for doing large-scale data analysis, and picking the right one for a given job is critical. Here, we take an in-depth analysis of the architecture and performance characteristics of a completely serverless data processing platform. While the approach isn’t applicable for every use case, it has a very low total cost of ownership (TCO) and because AWS Lambda allows us to run arbitrary code easily, this approach provides the flexibility to handle non-standard data formats easily.
