Case Study

Migration of e-commerce in the public cloud Amazon Web Services.

Diversual’s e-commerce was affected by the workload of user requests it was receiving. The solution consists of a migration to the AWS cloud, improving its capacity and an auto-scaling that allows the platform to perform optimally in the face of traffic surges.


Company Name: Diversual

E-commerce specialized in people’s sexual health.    


E-commerce migration to improve platform capacity

DIVERSUAL was in the full expansion and growth of its online sales business. But they had a bottleneck in their e-commerce infrastructure: when they started a marketing campaign, traffic increased too fast and their web infrastructure was not able to handle the load. Therefore, they required a Partner with experience in e-commerce solutions that would allow them to help their e-commerce to grow to the level of their market projection.

They approached us to support their existing e-commerce platform, as well as to be their infrastructure specialists and help them with the migration. In this migration the following applications were moved to the new platform: Pelican and Prestashop eCommerce from Diversual.

The objective of the new platform is to be able to undertake the marketing campaigns launched without having service downtime due to the increase in traffic. This evolution had to include new services and solutions to improve the architecture and guarantee the high availability, fault tolerance and scalability of the platform.

Deploy Automatic-Auto Scaling System

Diversual’s needs were met as they obtained a more flexible service through the cloud that allows them to expand their infrastructure in times of need and reduce it in off-peak times. Auto-scaling allows Diversual to scale cloud services, such as server capacities or virtual machines, up or down automatically, based on defined scenarios such as traffic and utilization levels.

In this way, they can continue to grow their campaigns without limit and reduce platform costs when traffic decreases.

Highly available solution adaptable to traffic peaks


A scalable platform that adapts easily to the real business: the ability to take the load when traffic increases too fast improves the performance of the platform.


Helps unify disparate data so that it is accessible using different techniques: through automated processes, client teams, and third parties can have global control of the infrastructure.


Costs aligned with business strategy: they pay only for needed resources when they are used (peaks…), automated switch-off for dev environments also contribute on cost-saving.

They meet project deadlines and ensure that the timescales are in line with the needs of the business. They respond quickly to any setbacks, drawing on their extensive experience in cloud environments, and adapt quickly to different situations on a case-by-case basis. They manage client expectations honestly and communicate clearly and professionally at all times.
