Rich Acosta


Vice President of AWS Cloud Engineering at Prudential. Currently on a journey to transform the way we build the next-generation of cloud-native applications on AWS.


Retro computing and gaming enthusiast.

I try to take a historical preservation approach where I can, aiming to keep the systems running with hardware and software that is representative of the era from which they were at the bleeding edge.

Some of my favorite items in my collection include the IBM PC/XT and Apple IIe.

In 2022 I had a serendipitous collaboration with YouTuber @UsagiElectric in bringing a Wang Writer 5503 back to life!

When I'm not working on old computers, I tinker around with amateur radio or experiment with networking and virtualization on my home lab server rack.
