Sweet'N'Spicy which is a popular app that offers a number of Indian recipes, is available in a number of app stores including Google Play, iTunes store and Windows Phone store. Collectively the app has over 1.5 million downloads. Makers of the app, Adhish Technologies have announced that they have adopted the recently launched Windows Azure Infrastructure as a service. The company claims that this move will remove various complications, save cost and enable a enterprise-grade cloud infrastructure.
Srikanth Karnakota, director, Server and Cloud Business, Microsoft said, "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 expressed "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!"
