Ubuntu and AWS cloud used to capture, protect and monetise data across platforms
Mercadolibre has risen to prominence as Latin America’s leading e-commerce and auction site. Founded in 1999 with a handful of employees, it is now the eighth-largest online retailer, handling up to two million site requests per minute and four million in peak times. To support its business, Mercadolibre has built a distributed cloud infrastructure based on Ubuntu and OpenStack. While it previously took days or weeks to provision new compute and storage resources, developers and managers can now auto-provision the infrastructure they need in real time. Ensuring that IT is constantly aligned to the needs of the business, the Openstack / Ubuntu Cloud also provides virtually unlimited scalability with no increase in licensing costs. To ensure mission-critical systems are constantly available, Mercadolibre’s cloud is supported by Canonical, the company behind the Ubuntu project.
Ubuntu offers all the training, software infrastructure, tools, services and support you need for your public and private clouds.
