  • Speakers NotesHere’s an example of the impact that Windows Azure can have on a single application. When you multiply it by all of your applications, you can imagine a very dramatic impact. Bart Robertson is a developer in Microsoft IT, and he built an application called the “Social Experience Platform”, or “SXP”. This platform enables Microsoft properties to have social aspects around ratings, comments, and so forth. Bart built this application and made it available to product managers at So, for example, uses SXP, also uses it. There are 34 total tenants. They originally had a traditional deployment in a traditional data center, and the price was $15,000 (USD) a month, availability was 99.1%, 2-4 hours of planned downtime. After they deployed SXP to Windows Azure, their costs went to $1,500 (USD) a month, cut by 90%. His up-time went to 99.7% per month. In the month of June 2011, he actually achieved 100% up-time. He had 0 hours of planned downtime, it only takes 30 minutes to provision hardware. When launched a big marketing campaign in June 2011, they anticipated a much heavier load to their site, so Bart doubled the number of web servers by changing the number from 3 to 6. They got a 700% increase in traffic but we able to handle it with ease. When the campaign was over, he dialed the number of web server back to 3. His total bill to handle that 700% increase in traffic was $70 (USD). This is a great example of the impact Windows Azure can have. This is a true story, and Bart has a blog where you can go read all about it:<click>
