Amadeus Master Pricer Moves to Google Cloud
Amadeus has reached a landmark moment in its systems infrastructure as it begins to deploy its shopping applications onto Google Cloud servers following the decommissioning of its mainframes.
This milestone makes Amadeus Master Pricer one of the first core travel industry applications to be deployed on the public cloud.
The move is a major step forward in Amadeus’ vision for cloud-based architecture that is globally distributed across both the private and public cloud, driving more speed, responsiveness, and resilience in global operations.
In addition, Amadeus is now progressively migrating its shopping applications to run on the public cloud across multiple regions.
This enables Amadeus to scale its system capacity faster and on-demand, which is particularly key in moments of peak travel.
At the same time, Amadeus has become the first in the industry to shut down all its mainframes after a long technical marathon which began over ten years ago.
Now running 100 per cent on open systems, Amadeus is boosting innovation for customers and developing new products and features much more rapidly without waiting for bespoke mainframe coding to take place.
