Stackmasters, the European OpenStack experts and Managed Cloud services provider, today announced its ongoing partnership with one of the biggest online travel agencies in Europe, tripsta, to develop an OpenStack based private cloud and related processes.
The OpenStack based private cloud is going to host existing applications as well as to support the company’s software development teams to their cloud-native modern software architecture by leveraging open technology and efficient process models.
“The most significant step in order to adopt the cloud with success is made by companies where business and IT leadership is aware that their digital transformation is driven by more than the technology solution,” said Thanassis Parathyras, CTO of Stackmasters. “Tripsta, along with other companies we support in EU, digested the open technology and cloud initiatives to achieve agility and efficiency in their business objectives, and we ‘re excited to participate in the project for building the tripsta cloud.”
“Tripsta has long before embraced open-source software and understands its important role in cloud technology which allows both the operators team and the development teams to utilize company’s resources in order to develop and enrich our leading on line booking services,” said Yiannis Polizois, Systems Administration Manager at tripsta. “Making things happen, we first had to build a cloud infrastructure and setup the respective processes. With Stackmasters support we are able to iterate over several cycles resulting in defining the right strategy and select suitable technologies towards bringing improved performance for our business.”
