Steven Young shares lessons learned by the Site Reliability Engineering team at Orbitz Worldwide. From initial installations of Membase thru upgrades to Couchbase 2.0, this presentation covers the effects of over committing resources, best practical experiences in multiple caches and eventual consolidation for ease of management and support.
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.
