Cardknox Chooses Logicworks to Migrate and Manage its AWS Cloud

Cardknox, a developer-friendly payment gateway platform, was one of the first companies to build comprehensive SDK and APIs for developers to integrate EMV and eCommerce payments in their software solutions. Its legacy hosting environment was hindering their ability to scale, resulting in availability issues and ongoing maintenance issues. They decided to migrate to AWS to improve scalability and cost-efficiency.  


  • Scaling constraints of their legacy infrastructure were hindering growth and resulting in far too much time on server maintenance
  • Desire to migrate to AWS platform
  • Need for PCI-DSS compliance
  • Legacy database platform (SQL Server 2008) was end-of-life and needed to be upgraded


  • Migration of their mission-critical applications from legacy platform to AWS
  • Migration from SQL Server 2008 to Amazon Aurora in order to reduce database maintenance, increase performance, get automatic creation of read-replicas
  • Ongoing AWS Managed Services, including 24×7 management, patching, backups
  • Ongoing PCI-DSS compliance on AWS, including intrusion detection, MFA, configuration management, audit support


Cardknox migrated to AWS in less than 60 days and now Logicworks ensures that their environment is both secure and agile. Logicworks automated many of the tasks that Cardknox would otherwise have to do manually, including taking snapshots, deploying code, patching, and monitoring. They also leverage Logicworks’ engineering talent to evaluate and migrate to new AWS services like Amazon Aurora and CodeDeploy. As a result, their AWS environment is PCI-compliant, scalable, and resilient.

“When we made the decision to migrate to AWS, we determined that having an expert partner would add strategic value to our internal IT teams. We’re extremely happy to have found Logicworks. They not only made our AWS migration faster and simpler, but they continue to provide guidance when we want to build new systems or try new technologies.”

– Yanky Weiss, CTO, Cardknox
