How JOCOM Started?
JOCOM commenced its online business journey by subscribing to a shared hosting plan with Exabytes. As the business expanded, the imperative to enhance its technological infrastructure became evident to accommodate the surging traffic.
Starting from the initial shared hosting, JOCOM progressed to a dedicated server and later embraced cloud virtual machines within the Exabytes ecosystem.
As the online business continued its upward trajectory, marked by significant sales spikes on the eCommerce platform, JOCOM faced the escalating demand for a robust system with increased computing power to effectively manage the growing traffic and the expanding inventory.
“The Exabytes team has been our steadfast support from the inception of our eCommerce venture, aiding us in scaling our IT and eCommerce portal, especially during peak times when handling high surges of traffic during major online sales events like 10/10, 11/11, or 12/12.”
Growing Digitally with Exabytes
Over the last nine years, JOCOM’s business has experienced remarkable growth, and Exabytes, as their solution partner, remains dedicated to fostering their digital transformation journey for even greater achievements.
As JOCOM’s popularity and demand multiplied, they encountered a bottleneck wherein their API server struggled to scale automatically due to its traditional architecture. After meticulous investigations, Exabytes’ team of experts pinpointed the issue and proposed an affordable solution by introducing AWS to JOCOM.
A comprehensive and widely-used cloud computing platform provided by Amazon.com, AWS offers a vast array of cloud services, including computing power, storage options, networking capabilities, machine learning, analytics, security, and more. AWS enables businesses and individuals to access computing resources without the need to invest in and maintain physical hardware.
After making the decision to migrate, Exabytes facilitated the migration of JOCOM’s platforms from Exabytes’ servers to AWS cloud. Initially, the migration posed challenges due to JOCOM’s unfamiliarity with AWS, but the Exabytes team provided comprehensive support, guiding JOCOM through the process to ensure a smooth and successful outcome. Consequently, JOCOM’s eCommerce portal now thrives on the AWS platform.
The Rehosting and Replatforming approach has shown immediate results in terms of performance and scalability. We are still going through the optimisation process to further improve the customer experience of the eCommerce platform.
