Getaroom Makes Booking Hotels Cheap and Easy with Opscode
Deploys Opscode Hosted Chef™ to Automate Website Infrastructure, Reducing Mean Time for New Compute Capacity to Less than 30 Minutes and Ensuring Maximum Service Consistency

SEATTLE, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Opscode®, the leader in cloud infrastructure automation, today announced that Getaroom, which makes finding the best rates on hotels anywhere in the world fast and easy, has deployed Opscode Hosted Chef™ to automate configuration management for the Amazon EC2 infrastructure powering its popular travel service. Using Hosted Chef, Getaroom has achieved a mean time to new compute capacity of less than 30 minutes and created a highly consistent infrastructure with maximum repeatability and minimal risk of failure.  

Getaroom provides travelers a state-of-the-art lodging website which offers the lowest hotel rates on the Internet. To keep its dynamic, transaction-intensive service running smoothly, Getaroom moved from a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) provider to more than 100 Amazon EC2 servers, providing the scalability to manage surges in demand during peak periods with minimal expense.

"To give travelers the best value for their dollars we've created a sophisticated website architecture that consolidates data from countless hotels and travel sites," said Ben Poweski, Architect, Getaroom. "Automation is absolutely critical to our site operation and Hosted Chef is the best tool for the job. It ensures consistency throughout our infrastructure and makes spinning up new servers a snap."

"Getaroom makes sure you always get the lowest lodging price wherever you go, and that's pretty awesome," said Adam Jacob, Chief Customer Officer, Opscode. "Hosted Chef lets them manage infrastructure as code, so compute resources are consistent and their service is always up and running."

Hosted Chef provides a model for reuse that easily integrates with Amazon EC2 via the Knife command line to automate configuration management across production, testing and development environments, delivering a consistent, repeatable infrastructure that scales on-demand. By combining Hosted Chef with Jenkins CI, Getaroom can continuously configure and deploy application updates into production, enabling the company to easily adapt to changes in user demand.

For detailed information on how Getaroom uses Hosted Chef and the results the company achieved, please read the case study here.
