Volantis, whose solutions help solve the complexity of delivering the true mobile Internet to thousands of unique devices, looked to Infosys to implement Windows Azure in order to increase scalability for its Ubik.com service. Ubik.com is free-to-use and allows small businesses and consumers to quickly create personalized mobile Internet sites, without having to write a line of code. The integration of Ubik.com with Windows Azure ensures a seamless user experience for those accessing Ubik®, supported by an integrated Volantis device database containing information on more than 6,700 mobile handsets. Within just four weeks, Volantis and Infosys were able to create a set of Web services running on Windows Azure that resulted in significant cost savings.
"Infosys worked closely with Volantis to integrate our system with Windows Azure," said Mark Watson, CEO, Volantis. "We want our customers to have the seamless scalability that is available only through the cloud. Infosys was able to quickly and effectively implement our solution on top of Windows Azure. Without Infosys, Volantis may well have had to purchase, deploy and manage new storage infrastructure so this initiative has delivered significant savings".
As a Microsoft Certified Gold Partner, Infosys has worked closely with the Windows creator over the past eight years to accelerate customers’ competitive business impact through legacy modernization, infrastructure optimization, enterprise collaboration and other services. By delivering Microsoft Corp.’s solutions with speed and predictability, Infosys was a natural choice for Volantis when considering its move to Windows Azure.
As part of Infosys’ alliance with Microsoft, the two technology leaders have been offering cloud-based solutions and services for Windows Azure for the past two years. Infosys recently opened a Cloud Center of Excellence (COE) that enables enterprise and ISV customers around the world to adopt cloud-based IT capabilities through strategic consulting, application development and migration, as well as through systems management, integration and monitoring services on the Windows Azure platform.
"With Windows Azure, we’re focused on delivering a services platform that provides partners like Infosys with the ability to build and manage highly scalable Web applications and services," said Amitabh Srivastava, senior vice president of Windows Azure at Microsoft Corp. "Infosys was able to help Volantis migrate to Windows Azure in just four weeks which is a prime example of how Windows Azure can provide cost savings."
"Over the past two years, Infosys has worked closely with Microsoft to help customers quickly and easily take advantage of the cost-savings, efficiencies and ease-of-management associated with this next-generation computing model," says Subu Goparaju, Vice President and Head, Software Engineering and Technology Labs (SETLabs), Infosys.
