The client is one of the world’s largest payment gateway companies that provides payment solutions to online merchants. With global operations spanning 17 markets, their on-premise hosting wasn’t facilitating them to scale dynamically during high-traffic peaks. The client decided to migrate their core applications from their existing data center to the AWS cloud.
The challenge was to migrate 400+ VM’s in just 3 months to support the annual sale of two of the largest e-commerce players (A Walmart Company) & (World’s 4th largest Smartphone Manufacturer). They were required to handle 8000+ transaction per second at the database level with improved reliability and automated scalability, which their existing on-premise setup could not deliver.

The database was successfully migrated from MYSQL to RDS Aurora
The client was able to achieve the required scalability and security needed
