DCX Migrates to AWS

October 21, 2022

DCX launched its 2nd generation platform in early July which involved a re-architecture and re-platforming in order to move to a mobile friendly multi commodity trading platform. Migrating away from another cloud provider, DCX in collaboration with AWS were able to leverage AWS cloud native managed services to build a modern, scalable, and robust architecture.

Working with our AWS Account Manager and AWS Solution Architect DCX built out a scalable solution leveraging a suite of Serverless Technologies to ensure we only pay when the application is in use, by adopting this approach DCX have managed to reduce our cloud consumption by a factor of 10 monthly allowing us to reinvest in the business and grow into further areas.

Graeme Kelly, DCX CTO said “During the next few months, DCX will work with AWS to build out our SaaS offering, expand into AI\ML to provide data insights to our users, DCX Data and DCX Open API across the main functional areas leveraging the power of the AWS ecosystem.”

Joshua Tan, the DCX AWS Account Manager said “The AWS cloud provides abroad range of resources and tools for organizations at any stage of the SaaS transformation. AWS helps start ups with SaaS models leverage AWS best practices and SaaS expertise on your SaaS journey to build your organizational, operational, and technical capabilities."
