Orbitz Enables Continuously Deployed Microservices with Docker

Background

Orbitz Worldwide is a leading global online travel company that uses innovative technology to enable leisure and business travelers to search for, plan and book a broad range of travel products and services including airline tickets, hotels, car rentals, cruises and vacation packages.


Challenges

Orbitz is comprised of 250 services, with their main services being SEO and SEM landing pages. This was becoming complicated. Like many companies of this size they had their entire team contributing tons of code. The needed to be able to split up their modules into different micro services that sit behind their larger service. And wanted a way for developers to own and manage their own code.


Solutions

Using Docker, Orbitz sped up delivery times from 2 weeks to 10 minutes. They achieved more consistency between each of their environments. This made deployment of applications extremely simple. They are now more confident that as an application flows through the pipeline, it will make it all the way to deployment, without experiencing costly failures.

  • My favorite part about Docker is the fact that deployment has always been hard, and now it's trivial, and so we focus on the more exciting things like orchestration and supervision – and writing code.
