Orbitz Takes Off with Couchbase
J. Steven Young of Orbitz Presented at 2012 CouchConf San Francisco
Orbitz’s leading travel website books hotels, flights, and car rentals. It is one of the most active sites in its market, logging millions of flight and hotel searches on an average day. Facing scalability and performance challenges with its relational database, as well as soaring costs and reliability issues with its caching layer, Orbitz turned to open source NoSQL technology. In this session, Orbitz will share how they replaced their caching tier with Couchbase, using Couchbase Server extensively across their site to achieve astronomical results in terms of scalability, reliability, performance, and cost savings.
