Winjit needed to partner with a strategic cloud solutions provider to cater to the explosive growth in the reach of their mobile applications.
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 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.
"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.
