One of the companies I worked with this last year was DreamFactory. DreamFactory Software is a leading publisher of rich web applications for cloud platforms. The DreamFactory Suite delivers enterprise class project, document and data collaboration software to over 10,000 businesses using different cloud platforms. They like to say they are “cloud agnostic” and recently they launched their suite on Microsoft Windows Azure. DreamFactory offers the ability to run on top of a number of cloud platforms as well as to interoperate between them.
Bill Appleton, CTO, DreamFactory Software says that “Windows Azure was built from the ground up with interoperability in mind. Developers can use just about any language or development tool to build their application, run it on Windows Azure, and consume data from any other cloud or on on-premises platform.”
DreamFactory took less than a month to migrate its applications to Windows Azure. DreamFactory customers are able to leverage pay-as-you-go pricing model enables customers to purchase processing and storage as needed.
