Winjit Technologies, a mobile application development
company has deployed Windows Azure for its explosive growth in the reach of
their mobile applications. Windows Azure manages its IT requirements more
effectively and has reduced its infrastructure cost by 30 percent.

Ashwin Kandoi, Co-founder, Winjit, said, “Windows Azure has
proven to be the cloud platform that helps us focus our energy on doing what we
do best – build high quality apps – without worrying about where our backend
infrastructure is. In fact, seeing the success and the cost benefits of moving
to Windows Azure, we are now considering moving our complete infrastructure
over to Azure!”

“Winjit has been able to reduce their infrastructure cost
and accelerate the development of their applications by migrating to a cloud
environment. In less than two weeks, we moved most of Winjit’s existing marquee
mobile apps to Windows Azure,” said Srikanth Karnakota, Director Server and
Tool Business, Microsoft.

Winjit leveraged Windows Azure services such as support for
PHP, Java and Linux and Azure media services that helped create a media
streaming server on Azure in no-time.  By
migrating its development infrastructure – Team Foundation Server and Exchange
Server – to the Windows Azure platform, Winjit’s cost per development seat has
also reduced significantly.

However, looking at the benefits of Windows Azure, such as
its ability to scale up to the required demand in a short span, security,
pay-as-per-use facility and disaster recovery capabilities, Winjit finally
chose Windows Azure which met all its requirements at a price point that
provided rapid return-on-investment.
