Mercado Libre

Mercado Libre has improved time to market with AWS cloud services

Mercado Libre is the largest e-commerce ecosystem in Latin America, with more than 100 million unique active users. The company started 24 years ago as a monolithic system. As the business grew, the existing speed no longer met the company's demands, so in 2010, it was transformed to a microservices architecture. Even so, the speed offered with microservices made it clear that they needed to move to the cloud. Then, in 2015, they began their migration to AWS.

In this video, Christian Martini, Senior IT Governance Manager, and Mauricio Ferrari, FinOps and Cloud Economics Manager at Mercado Libre, describe the transition to the AWS cloud. The managers explain why they selected AWS at the same time that they developed an internal platform that helps them to exploit AWS services in greater depth, becoming more efficient, growing more rapidly and meeting the needs of their customers in an ever better way.


Migrating to AWS allowed us to focus on the important parts of our business, delivering much better value and many more products to our users throughout Latin America.“
