Hotelbeds is an accommodation wholesaler that services over 50,000 hotels across 183 countries. When the organization realized their current IT infrastructure environment had become too complex and costly to manage and its middle-tier database cache could no longer scale to serve the company's busiest seasons, they underwent a rigorous evaluation process to find a solution that would better meet their business needs.
Hotelbeds analyzed the total cost of ownership (TCO) of Oracle WebLogic Server versus open source application servers in the market today, and decided to migrate their entire applications ecosystem to Oracle WebLogic Server.
By consolidating onto Oracle WebLogic Server, Hotelbeds was able to reduce operating costs and eliminate the risk of running their business critical applications on unsupported platforms.
Additionally, Hotelbeds opted to replace its existing open source caching systems MemCached and EHCache with Oracle Coherence to increase performance, scalability and ease-of-use. Upon consolidating on WebLogic and Coherence they have reduced maintenance costs by more than 165%.
Hotelbeds also uses a range of other Oracle technologies to support its infrastructure, including Oracle Database, Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle GoldenGate, Oracle WebCenter Content, Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle JRockit Java Virtual Machine.
Check out the video, Hotelbeds Moves from Open Source: Consolidates on WebLogic, to hear Juan Di Dos, Director of IT for Hotelbeds, talk about the benefits of aggregating all their applications on a single platform.
