About Ben Rosand

Ben Rosand is the founding engineer of Elastic Kubernetes Service, an AWS platform that automates deployment, management, and scaling of containerized applications.

Known information

Ben Rosand serves as the founding engineer for Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), a comprehensive open source container orchestration platform provided by AWS. EKS simplifies the complexities involved in deploying, managing, and scaling containerized applications by automating many of the manual processes. It offers features like automatic scaling of worker nodes, automatic upgrades and patching, and seamless integration with other AWS services. The service supports automatic scaling through a cluster autoscaler based on current resource usage and provides different configuration presets tailored for development and production environments. EKS adheres to AWS’s EKS networking best practices, ensuring that nodes are deployed in private subnets while public load balancers are placed in public subnets for enhanced security. Additionally, it includes out-of-the-box support for IAM Roles for Service Accounts (IRSA), uses AWS KMS for encryption of secrets at rest, and mandates the use of Instance Metadata Service version 2 (IMDSv2) on all node groups.
