Flying High with Elasticsearch at Expedia

Expedia is all about travel. Whether you are looking for a flight, hotel, or car rental — everything is available at your fingertips, online, and easy to book.

The data volume Expedia processes is up to 1TB a day and almost 300k events per second. Elasticsearch was chosen to help Expedia monitor those events and improve the booking experience for their customers. Flexibility and scalability were key factors in this decision. Elasticsearch now makes it easy for different teams at Expedia to monitor all events using the same dashboard across the organization, so everyone knows what happens amongst the wide variety of technologies used.
