How Microsoft Azure helped Codeanywhere scale quickly

 |   Vanessa Ho

When Codeanywhere needed a cloud-based solution to help it scale, it turned to Microsoft Azure. The Palo Alto, California-based startup, which makes a mobile app for developers to write and share code, chose Azure for its flexibility and affordability.

“With services that run around the clock, Codeanywhere had a major concern regarding migration of its new solution quickly, with a minimal impact upon code changes required,” writes Steve Guggenheimer, Microsoft corporate vice president of Developer Platform & Evangelism and chief evangelist.

“Transitioning to Microsoft Azure took only two days, requiring just two workers be involved. Additionally, Codeanywhere’s Linux servers didn’t need any changes made to work on Microsoft Azure.”

Azure’s enterprise-grade hosting infrastructure and scalability helped Codeanywhere increase its customer base of 10,000 users to more than 400,000 in a short amount of time.
