Star Alliance to migrate IT infrastructure to AWS cloud

Star Aliance AWS

The world's largest airline alliance with 26 members, Star Alliance is moving all of its IT infrastructures to AWS cloud.

Star Alliance is working with TCS to migrate all of its data, platforms, and business-critical applications to AWS. The airline alliance intends to move away from its own data center, notes the announcement. 

Executive Opinion

Head of Digital & Technology at Star Alliance, Jeremy Drury said, “We decided to go all-in on AWS to gain the reliability and scalability we needed to support the increasing number of global travelers joining the alliance each year, but the pandemic also proved how valuable it is to have a flexible and agile infrastructure in the cloud. No one could have predicted what has happened so far in 2020, but because of our collaboration with AWS, we were able to quickly adjust our goals and scale back our expenses. In addition to cost savings and elasticity, AWS gives us the most comprehensive set of cloud services to innovate rapidly, introduce new services to keep travelers safe, and continuously reinvent the global travel experience."

Managing Director, Travel and Hospitality at Amazon Web Services, David Peller, said, "By going all-in on AWS, Star Alliance is leveraging the elasticity of the cloud to take advantage of industry trends and pivot their operations in order to respond to drastically changing market dynamics. Star Alliance is a prime example of a global organization that has successfully embraced the cloud to steer through times of uncertainty. As the world anticipates opening up again, we are excited to work with Star Alliance as they leverage AWS’s comprehensive suite of services to innovate new offerings at scale while raising the bar for what is possible for the next era of global air travel."

Star Alliance and AWS Usages

Star Alliance leveraging AWS analytics and databases such as Amazon RDS, Amazon Athena, and Amazon QuickSight (AWS’s business intelligence service). These services are helping Star Alliance to identify future travel demand and trends along with improving its customer experiences. 

Star Alliance also intends to create a data lake on Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). It will allow them to leverage AWS machine learning services like Amazon SageMaker to help in identifying loyalty-related fraud across the members’ frequent flyer networks, notes the announcement.
