Booking.com Serves One Million Visitors Per Day With MySQL Enterprise Unlimited
Booking.com is Europe's largest online hotel travel reservations agency - attracting over 30 million unique visitors each month. The company's development team decided they needed to re-architect their old MySQL-based system to improve their site's performance, uptime, scalability and business reporting capabilities. They employed MySQL's professional services group to consult on implementing a new, modern Scale-out architecture. By dividing one main MySQL database into three separate master servers and then replicating their distinct data on multiple low-cost machines, Booking.com was able to significantly increase their site's speed, lower their infrastructure cost and improve their uptime through MySQL's high-availability solution, based on DRBD Linux technology.
