Cost-efficient Online Store Hosting in AWS
Reduce Costs and increase Profits with efficient Store Hosting in Amazon Web Services
Secure shopping from home - Online demand has seen an unprecedented surge due to the pandemic. Having your own online store is more important than ever and in some cases even critical to your business.
An online store also comes with a significant advantage. It can be used around the clock and, unlike physical stores, can be expanded comparably easily. However, this advantage only pays off if you build your store on flexible resources. However, if you invest in physical computing resources, you quickly destroy this advantage. These incur costs even if they are not used or only partially used.
With a modern cloud-based infrastructure that can be scaled, expanded and operated flexibly, you only pay for the resources you actually need and only when you need them. That's why it's even more important to run your store on a modern cloud infrastructure if you want to exploit maximum profit potential!

Use Case 1 - Infrastructure Modernization SAP Commerce System
The AWS experts from Arvato Systems first conducted a potential assessment for a German furniture manufacturer in the form of a professional AWS Well-Architected Review. The optimization and automation potential was then addressed as part of a modernization project. For this purpose, Arvato Systems set up a landing zone in AWS and developed a multi-level store landscape with a view to maximum automation. The Arvato Systems team worked closely with the customer's SAP Commerce service provider. Arvato Systems provided the customer's IT staff with comprehensive training on the new technology and empowered them for possible in-house operation.
The new environment meets the requirements of the AWS Well-Architected Framework and is also more flexible and easier for the customer to maintain. Manual processes could be reduced and the degree of automation significantly increased. In perspective, further setups in a similar style are to follow.
- Increased level of automation
- Better maintainability
- More performant architecture
- Knowledge transfer through AWS experts from Arvato Systems
Use case 2 - Modernization of a Pimcore system
Arvato Systems developed a new D2B store based on Pimcore for a customer and manufacturer of cosmetic and medical products. Amazon Web Services was chosen to host the new system, which was also to be taken over by Arvato Systems. The AWS experts from Arvato Systems took on the task of building the infrastructure based on Kubernetes and EKS clusters. The result was a three-tier landscape consisting of a dev, pre-prod and prod environment. The dev environment was adapted to the dynamic requirements of the Pimcore system. In a joint workshop with the customer, Arvato Systems experts developed and implemented further cost optimization measures. Arvato Systems operates the system in a managed service model, which meets the dynamic requirements of the system.
- Cost-efficient system operation
- Scalability and elasticity
- System reliability
