AWS Migration for an Innovative Logistics Platform

Engagement Overview​

Adex, an ISO/IEC Certified Cloud Consulting Company and an AWS Consulting Partner helped Upaya City Cargo improve its AWS systems.

About the Customer

Upaya is a tech-enabled logistics service provider offering various intra-city and intercity delivery services. They provide an innovative tech platform that delivers quality logistics solutions to transform the way things move in Nepal.


Business Challenge

Earlier, Upaya hosted its applications from the VPS provider in Nepal. As it heavily relies on technology, the operational tasks entirely depend on the applications’ reliability, availability, and serviceability. To summarize, before AWS, Upaya faced the following:

  • Complexity in creating well-managed VMs
  • Flexibility to change without any local provider’s intervention
  • Issues in upscaling and down-scaling resources in response to traffic.
  • Constant network outages at the data center impacted overall operations.
  • Poor monitoring and analysis of the performance of the servers

Why Adex & AWS?

For Upaya, AWS was an ease-of-use platform that served the requirement to create VMs as per the requirement. AWS provided the flexibility of upscaling and downscaling, and even autoscaling its operation in response to the traffic.

Being one of the advanced AWS partners in Nepal, Upaya chose Adex as its AWS Partner. With its certified and competent team, Adex offered assistance to improve Upaya’s IT systems and scale business requirements with significant cost benefits.

Solution Delivered

One of the major outputs Upaya wanted out of this project was to enhance the user’s serviceability. They wanted resilience in their operations per the rate of incoming traffic & improved performance of their applications.

For this, we assisted Upaya in migrating its databases to AWS RDS along with the management of their applications on EC2. This enabled flexibility for their developers toward strategic alignment. Moreover, Upaya noticed the results of utilizing these solutions when their additional administrative overheads started declining.

Additionally, we worked with Upaya to create a better management of their AWS environments with regards to efficiency, performance, & security. As Upaya started adapting various AWS services, we assisted in reducing future dependencies of Upaya’s internal team with Adex. For an effective knowledge transfer, we provided adequate training and workshops to help understand newly introduced AWS features and services. We further helped create respective training and education portals on AWS for Upaya.

Upaya leverages the following services offered by AWS to build a resilient and automated architecture. 

  • Amazon EC2 (Elastic Cloud Compute)
  • Amazon ECS (Elastic Container Service)

  • Amazon EBS (Elastic Block Store)

Business Benefits

With AWS and Adex, Upaya was able to achieve:

  • High flexibility in development and operations team
