E-commerce has continued its upward trend despite the end of the COVID-19 emergency and physical stores reopening. In 2022, retail e-commerce sales reached $5.7 trillion and are expected to sustain its growth in the coming years.

The e-commerce space is ripe with opportunities. Still, companies like Aeroworx must differentiate themselves from hundreds of competitors. They must be quick on their feet, innovative about their offerings, and responsive to the demands of their customers.

About Aeroworx

Headquartered in Manila, Philippines, Aeroworx is a 360-degree e-commerce solutions provider. They enable e-commerce businesses in Southeast Asia with the services they need to thrive in a digital landscape: operations, marketing, content creation, last-mile delivery, and customer service. Combining their expertise in retail and brand management with technology, Aeroworx has set its sights on being the top fashion-focused e-commerce enabler in the region.

The Challenge

Due to limitations and restrictions from their former hosting provider, Aeroworx’s robust ecommerce sites would in effect experience occasional slowdown and performance issues. There were also instances of random but required upgrades which forced the team to concentrate all their effort on the needed adjustments to prevent downtime and any problems on their e-commerce websites.

Migrating their sites to a new hosting provider, however, would take a massive amount of effort. Aeroworx needed to move their applications to a new environment and at the same time prepare them to be ready for scaling, integration, and innovation. It was time to take their customers to the next level of e-commerce.

The Solution

Aeroworx reached out to Stratpoint, a leading Cloud services provider that has built applications on the Cloud for over 10 years. After considering the company’s current and future infrastructure requirements, it was decided that Amazon Web Services (AWS) would most aptly suit Aeroworx’s business.

AWS offers Aeroworx:

  • Scalability
  • Reliability and uptime
  • Security
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Innovation and integration

The Implementation

Stratpoint implemented Stratpoint Cloud Bedrock for Aeroworx, to set a solid foundation for the company’s new Cloud environment. A total of 12 e-commerce shops were migrated to AWS, covering the following:

  • Stratpoint Cloud Bedrock: Virtual Private Cloud and Network, Identity and Access Management, and Baseline Security
  • Application and Database Server Migration

During the implementation, the project team encountered an attempted attack on the migrated e-shops. Stratpoint conducted a proof of concept to block the attack and similar attacks in the future using Cloudflare Web Application Firewall (WAF), a possible solution addition to strengthen the defense of Aeroworx’s environment.

Stratpoint also put together a Managed Cloud Services team for Aeroworx, composed of engineers that will manage the company’s apps, keep their environment up to date, recommend and implement cost-saving measures, and protect the Cloud from cyber threats. All these while Aeroworx focuses on helping their own customers and growing their portfolio.

    The Results

    Following the implementation of AWS in collaboration with Stratpoint, Aeroworx’s clients experienced improvements in their e-commerce operations. The impact was multifaceted, enhancing performance, user experience, and business outcomes. Some key improvements observed were:
