Cloud migration and 24/7 AWS infrastructure support for mobile-first cryptocurrency platform

The client

PowerTrade offers a mobile-first, cryptocurrency and crypto derivative trading experience that’s designed to be simple, fast, and focused on success.

The challenge

The PowerTrade site was being hosted on GCP and was committed to a significant monthly spend. The local technical knowledge of GCP in Singapore is behind that of other platforms, and  assembling a team to restructure their hosting setup was proving a challenge.

They wanted a new hosting solution that would result in both a cost reduction and a higher level of scalability. To achieve this, they approached AWS. The AWS Singapore start-up team then introduced PowerTrade to Just After Midnight due to deep migration experience and expertise, particularly within the FSI sector.

The solution

The PowerTrade GCP infrastructure was already on containers, so our team was able to expertly re-platform and migrate their existing setup to AWS with minimal disruption to a mission-critical business. The platform was hosted on Kubernetes in GCP, so with the deep container expertise at Just After Midnight, we were able to achieve a simple, safe and timely migration ensuring that PowerTrade’s core objectives were achieved.

The process, from initial discussion to completion, took just 4 weeks in total. This was due to the agility and flexibility of our Singapore team.

The AWS Singapore start-up team assisted with deal support throughout. Our team now supports PowerTrades AWS infrastructure 24/7 and offers specialist DevOps capabilities around the clock.


  • Our migration from GCP to AWS resulted in a saving of 50% on PowerTrades monthly hosting spend.
  • We also created a far more user-friendly environment for the development team.
