Volvo Unleashes Creativity, Engages One Million Visitors with Cloud-Based Campaign
4-page Case Study posted: 07/20/2011

High-end auto manufacturer Volvo Car Corporation wanted to create an effective marketing campaign to tie in with the popular Twilight movie franchise and capitalize on its prominent product placement in that series. It wanted to create an interactive game would engage a global audience. The idea for the game was that users could play to win a new Volvo XC60 car. However, the company’s existing technology infrastructure could not provide the scalability required to fulfill this vision, and expanding it would be cost-prohibitive. After consulting with Microsoft Gold Certified Partner LBi to evaluate options, Volvo selected the Windows Azure cloud computing platform. Using familiar skills and tools, the development team quickly and successfully delivered an exciting gaming experience that scaled to meet demand and cost much less than an on-premises solution.
