Silk for Google Cloud
Priceline turned to Silk to help with that. The Silk Cloud DB Virtualization Platform delivers up to 10x faster performance compared to native cloud alone, without changing a thing about customers’ underlying applications or infrastructure. Silk does this through the use of rich enterprise data services – such as data replication, zero-footprint snapshots, and deduplication. With always-on availability and unbreakable data resiliency, Silk is the ideal solution for customers who are looking to move their most important data to the public cloud.
Priceline saw a significant increase in performance by leveraging the Silk Cloud DB Virtualization Platform. This boost in performance made it possible to cut back on overprovisioning to achieve the desired level of performance their workloads needed – thus helping to keep their cloud budget in check.
Along with all of this, Silk offered much more for the Priceline team. “The one thing my team was surprised about was the ease of use and manageability of the Silk platform,” said Frank Magaletta, Sr. Director of Infrastructure. “We’re able to spin up nodes, spin up controllers, reduce performance or increase performance when necessary. The ease of manageability has been a real delight for our engineers to interact with.”
Priceline is now looking to continue moving more workloads to the cloud with Silk providing the performance and ease of use that these workloads need. “I would recommend Silk to other companies because of the manageability and performance it provides,” says Frank. “It reduces the costs and resources [being paid for] by your engineering teams. Silk is a gamechanger for Priceline in the cloud.”
