For startups, speed is king, OSS on Azure
4-page Case Study posted: 12/16/2013

Founded in 2011 with the vision to create a ‘Study Networking Service’ that combines learning with social networking, i\u0026amp;Combine has been a breath of fresh air in Asian and North American markets in 2013. In the time between the launch of the Bapul service (www.bapul.net) in March 2012 and expanding the service worldwide, i\u0026amp;Combine decided to switch the service management environment to Windows Azure. What i\u0026amp;Combine found was that the domestic cloud service that it had relied upon to provide Bapul within Korea seemed to have difficulties when it came to expanding the service worldwide, particularly in terms of maintaining the optimum speed for a great user experience while still being able to achieve service scalability. When it came to adopting a global cloud service, i\u0026amp;Combine went for one powered by OSS on Azure.
