Connected Car and Smart Mobility require a solid foundation in the form of a secure cloud platform capable of handling an increasing number of connected devices and provide them all with the required APIs while maintaining high observability.
Grape Up experts help you build the platform meeting your business concept selecting suitable platform services providers like Azure, AWS, Google Cloud, Alibaba or installing and expanding on-premises systems like OpenStack or VMware vSphere.
Grape Up engineers ensure extensive, hands-on experience in leveraging SaaS like Azure IoT, AWS IoT Core, or Google Cloud IoT for building the IoT platforms. Proficiency in managing key IoT systems and competencies ensured by Certified Kubernetes Administrators allow Grape Up to build reliable, scalable, production-ready platforms to run both on edge and in the cloud.
IoT Platforms and SaaS empower automotive companies to build services providing smooth communication between the car and the cloud. Such technologies allow service providers to deliver customer-facing solutions leveraging scalability, resilience while ensuring cost-effectiveness and safety.

With cloud computing power becoming more cost-effective and easier to acquire, automotive companies can improve the performance of in-car and mobility services. By leveraging remote access to vehicles or devices off-site, the automotive industry accelerates business processes and increases the usability of delivered software. Ensuring the resiliency of automotive solutions, automotive enterprises need to build reliable APIs and platforms capable of handling these kinds of operations.
While the automotive industry becomes software-centric, stable and instant connectivity between the vehicle and the cloud is a must. To guarantee uninterrupted connection, automotive companies leverage: multi-cloud globally available infrastructure, dynamically switching connection with different types of connectivity with different coverage: low-earth-orbit satellites, LTE, 5G/6G, or Wi-Fi. The combination of the best available connection and closest geographical part of the multi-cloud infrastructure results in a very low transmission latency.
APIs are the bloodstreams of data, allowing for a secure and robust extension of services available in the vehicle. To leverage the network effect of connecting myriads of cars, automotive companies build advanced cloud connectors for easy and scalable handling of hundreds of thousands of vehicles.
Among other demanding solutions Automotive Cloud has to deliver, maintaining robust, resilient infrastructure supporting hundreds of thousands of simultaneously connected devices is a priority. Such a system connects users from their smartphones, vehicles themselves, infrastructure devices like traffic lights, or other APIs like news, weather, or stocks market. All of this combined requires high-availability preparation, scalability from the beginning, and careful planning for the future.
Automotive enterprises willing to deliver high-performing services need to make sure their cloud operates without any interruptions maintaining very low latency and observable infrastructure. Observability enables service providers to prevent downtimes and incidents instead of fixing them afterward. Building reliable unified observability systems enables the automotive industry to improve maintenance, reduce operational costs, and provide a seamless customer experience.
Global availability of the services is currently a necessity. With increased distance from the data center, the latency increases, impacting customer experience and satisfaction from digital services. Adding access points on all continents with global routing and availability makes the connections smooth and improves user experience. This is extremely important in raising China market, which is guarded by the Great Firewall.
While 90% of enterprises work on Data Science projects, only 10% of these companies constantly and successfully deploy their projects to production. We create scalable, resilient, and robust cloud platforms enabling developers to quickly develop Data Science and ML experiments and deploy them to production in one day. We have a proven record of successful MLOps projects built on AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud platforms, leveraging cloud-native tools such as MLFlow and Kubernetes and robust automation based on Terraform.
With the increased usage of connected digital systems and platforms, the need for scalability became mandatory. The number of vehicles and devices simultaneously connected to the automotive cloud platforms surges, and scalability became one of the core system requirements. Not only for resiliency but also to reduce costs and allow enterprises to pay only for used resources. It has to be paired with global availability, made possible through hybrid and multi-cloud deployments, spanning from company premises, through well-known European, and US providers such as AWS or Azure to the blooming Chinese market.
Grape Up has a strong experience in building reliable, scalable cloud platforms based on modern, proven tools such as Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry and providers including AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, VMware, and OpenStack. We have successfully deployed services and platforms to the AWS China region, increasing availability on that market.
Breakage of the feature or platform unavailability results in both income reduction and the loss of customer trust. Customer satisfaction and trust, once lost, is extremely hard to regain. That’s why the platform and services observability is one of the most important project KPIs. With alerting built on top of it, most of the outages can be prevented and the platform and services status is always clearly visible to all stakeholders. Grape Up DevOps engineers are highly proficient in building observable architectures. We have built metrics and logs layers for enterprises dealing with millions of transactions per day both in the automotive as well as retail industries.
