Business Benefits

The final PoC proves that AIXBRO has a lot to gain from the Cloud, ensuring customers are able to better use their services and purchase from their store. The company is now looking to expand the PoC to include additional content, including user-generated information.

    • Thanks to scalable performance, the PoC fits within AWS’ free tier, helping save significant costs,
    • AWS Managed Services also reduce administrative & maintenance based costs,
    • Databases can be updated and deployed in minutes,
    • AIXBRO no longer have to worry about their infrastructure - even with a growing inventory, the system scales up.

Business Need

AIXBRO help clients to source and order a wide range of automotive parts from their eCommerce system, with up to 30 million products at any one time, which means that data management is essential.

Unfortunately, their current infrastructure is limited and can only populate around half a million products - even then, it takes up to 80 hours. AIXBRO were curious about the Cloud’s potential, and, to test it, they wanted to create a Cloud-native Proof of Concept (PoC) to showcase how effectively the technology can solve their situation.
