Amadeus realising benefits from migration to Google Cloud

    Google Cloud, via official Amadeus blog, reported (16-Apr-2019) Amadeus’ decision to move its core travel application onto Google Cloud has provided the following benefits:

    • Amadeus is able to deploy instances of its applications nearer to the point of consumption, reducing latency;
    • Amadeus delivers improved resilience by having multiple instances of this part of its core platform deployed in more locations.
    • Amadeus is able to expand and contract the resources it consumes based on need. The company can scale up for predictable events, or unpredictable events like severe weather, and then it can scale back down, without having to pay for the extra capacity it does not need for the rest of the year.
