Every org migrating from enterprise data centers to the cloud must discover its own path. Depending on org culture, history, tech diversity, and business model, you will need a mixed bag of techniques, an aptitude for growth mindset, and steadfastness to deal with boundaryless problems.
As one of the world’s leading travel companies revolutionizing travel through the power of technology, Expedia offers a suite of travel products through its brands worldwide. Subbu Allamaraju shares the story of Expedia’s strategic migration to the cloud at a massive scale. As the migration has gained pace, teams at Expedia have learned (and are continuing to learn) a number of lessons about architecture choices, microservices, serverless adoption, resiliency practices, automation approaches, culture, cloud costs, technical debt, lift and shift versus rewriting apps, migration of stateless and stateful monoliths, controls and compliance, and organizing for large-scale programs.
Subbu Allamaraju is a vice president of technology at the Expedia Group, where he is leading a large-scale migration of Expedia’s travel platforms from enterprise data centers to a highly available architecture in the cloud. Subbu is a well-rounded engineer and influencer with hands-on experience in software development, architecture, distributed systems, services, internet protocols, operations, and the cloud.
