Adhish Technologies' popular Sweet'N'Spicy application has adopted the Windows Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). The move is said to help improve performance of the application.
According to Microsoft, the adoption of Windows Azure Infrastructure will help simplify, save on cost as well as have enterprise-grade cloud infrastructure. Sweet’N’Spicy is among top rated cooking apps available on Windows Phone and Windows 8 platforms along with all other major app stores and has over 1.5 million downloads.
“Before migrating to Windows Azure IaaS, Adhish Technologies evaluated many other platforms for hosting the IT backbone of their flagship app Sweet’N’Spicy that was witnessing a high positive response from all over the world,” says Microsoft in a release.
“It witnessed a significant improvement in the performance of Sweet’N’Spicy app by merely migrating to Windows Azure, that too without increasing its infrastructure capacity. By Windows Azure IaaS, companies have now option of the hybrid environment at their terms where they can choose mix of both on-premise and cloud for their workloads.”
Srikanth Karnakota, director, Server and Cloud Business, Microsoft says, “Windows Azure IaaS is the critical piece of Microsoft’s hybrid cloud strategy. By adopting Windows Azure IaaS, Adhish Technologies can certainly stay at ease when it comes to managing the app’s technical backend and focus in building the business tier and features for their application. An open, cost effective platform and ability to quickly migrate an existing application and deep technical support are the key factors that enabled Adhish technologies to choose Windows Azure IaaS.”
Vijaianand Mohan, Co-founder Adhish Technologies expresses “We decided to migrate to Windows Azure because we wanted to host our app on an infrastructure that was enterprise grade. It took us less than a week in the migration process and we were backed by full support and guidance of Microsoft team in the process. Windows Azure provides some great services such as VM endpoints that reduce pain points associated with maintaining and configuring multiple servers in a traditional hosting environment. The ability to scale-up or scale-down our infrastructure to better cater to a fluctuating demand is really a boon!”
