Downsizing a home, a loved one’s estate or even a business can be challenging. How do you get rid of all that stuff? Canadian-based online auctioneer MaxSold virtually connects sellers and buyers together in Canada and the United States.

They do this virtually for users across Canada and the United States. On the selling side, MaxSold handles all aspects of any liquidation. Workers catalog items for sale and manage auction marketing for all listings on the website. MaxSold handles all the marketing to prospective buyers to view, and ultimately bid on, a seller’s auction items.

Since opening for the first bid in 2010, the site has completed 16,000+ auctions and fields 168 annual page visits from users in 35 metro areas. The company needs to maintain a reliable website at all times.

Historically the company had maintained servers in a local data center but made the move to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud by using multiple AWS solutions, including Amazon RDS, Amazon EC2 and Amazon S3, among others.
