Amadeus, the world’s largest travel reservation and ticketing system, handling bookings for 95 percent of flights worldwide, uses a variety of NoSQL databases to deal with the massive amounts of data that it handles.

Amadeus enables 3.7 million bookings on more than 700 airlines, 110,000 hotel properties, and 30 rental car agencies each day.

“NoSQL databases are part of our technology stack to deal with Big Data,” said Dietmar Fauser, vice president of the architecture, quality and governance divisions for research and development at Amadeus.
