How can DevOps free up my developers? How can I scale MongoDB? How can I ensure my ecommerce site doesn’t crumble under massive growth?
Infrastructure demand can be turbulent and difficult to predict. As data grows both in scale and complexity, web applications increasingly become spread across heterogeneous compute and storage environments.

And if you need help, specialists with the Rackspace Managed Cloud can assist you with any questions.
In a recent guest post entitled “Performance at Scale: SSDs, Silver Bullets and Serialization” for High Scalability, Aaron Sullivan, a Principal Engineer at Rackspace, took a close look at the problem of trying to increase performance across software and hardware systems. Let’s say that you want to increase the performance of your application by 10X. That turns out to be monumentally difficult and requires a comprehensive fine-tuning of all the components that contribute to performance.
