About the Company

Mjunction is an Indian online marketplace company that specializes in e-commerce, digital procurement, and supply chain solutions. Founded in 2001 as a joint venture between Tata Steel and SAIL, Mjunction has played a pivotal role in transforming various industries by providing innovative technology platforms for buying, selling, and managing commodities and services. The company's expertise lies in creating transparent, efficient, and secure digital ecosystems that optimize business processes and drive value for a wide range of stakeholders.

Customer Challenges

Mjunction faces the challenge of migrating 120 on-premises servers, comprising primarily Linux stack (63) and some Windows (57), including SAP (24) and Non-SAP (96) workloads, to AWS cloud. The objective is to centralize infrastructure for inventory consolidation, optimize costs, and enhance operational efficiency. The underlying issue lies in their on-premises infrastructure, which contributes to elevated costs.

Why Minfy

Mjunction selected Minfy as their migration partner due to a well-established relationship as their reselling partner. Leveraging Minfy's premier AWS partnership in India and a track record of successful large-scale migrations underscored their expertise and reliability.


Minfy’s Solution

Minfy successfully undertook a substantial migration initiative for Mjunction, encompassing the migration of their 120 on-premises servers. Notably, we seamlessly migrated their critical application, Auction1.metaljunction.com, from IBM infrastructure to AWS, including the associated databases. This paved the way for the following transformative elements within our comprehensive solution:

Landing Zone Setup


A meticulously crafted landing zone was established, providing Mjunction with a secure and compliant foundation for their seamless migration to AWS. This robust groundwork ensured data integrity and compliance with industry standards.


Autoscaling high availability for Application

The implementation of dynamic autoscaling mechanisms offered the application elasticity, enabling it to automatically adjust resources based on real-time demand. This approach enhanced operational efficiency and responsiveness, ensuring optimal performance even during peak usage periods.

Database Modernization


Mjunction's Oracle databases underwent a strategic transformation by transitioning to open-source managed RDS PostgreSQL and self-managed EC2 PostgreSQL instances. This modernization strategy not only elevated performance and scalability but also contributed to cost savings by leveraging open-source technology's benefits.
