New AWS Blockchain-Inspired Platform Saves 70% of Client Budget MoM


The client needed help creating a Blockchain Validator Solution capable of controlling transaction flow within a private network on the Cloud. Additionally, they required a cost-effective “Scale on-demand” architecture solution as a result of uncertainty in expected network transactions volume. This meant a high level of data and transaction security was required due to nature of the transactions, including rigorous fault tolerance with high up-time SLAs.


TradeHelm’s team of AWS experts implemented an AWS solution while also providing ongoing AWS Managed Services post-launch. As an AWS partner, Amazon Web Services were easily leveraged to locate all development, testing, and production environments. This allowed for instant scaling in a ”pay for what you use” model.

Additionally, our team managed Cloud use based on Amazon CloudWatch services, allowing a 24×5 support and full real-time supervision. We also introduced world-class DevOps best practices and tools to regularly maintain the environment. Our flexibility allowed the CME to update servers and enable more instances on-demand with Amazon Machine Images (AMI).

Benefits + Results:

CME Group achieved an average cost savings of 70% per month on AWS compared to their on-site servers. Through CloudWatch, monitoring cost 60% less than before. The client now has a highly scalable and fault tolerant Cloud environment managed by our Cloud Managed Services group. In the end, it took 50% less time to build and deploy our solution than with an alternative resource.


“TradeHelm has given us access to development talent that we wouldn’t otherwise have been able to afford and has paired that with management suggestions and feedback that have been very helpful to us as we’ve had to make decisions about how best to grow our team and business. Their developers have done a great job of learning our product and business and we’ve been quite pleased with how our ‘near-shore’ experience has gone so far.”
