HotelTonight is a five year old company that began like a lot of technology startups. It was originally built on Rails and quickly built into a monolithic application. But it didn’t take very long before the company was releasing new features and sitting them on top of its stack, supporting it all and the business as it grew organically. through that all, the business was scaling and the platform itself needed to keep pace.
