Glynk is a social discovery and networking platform that enables users to share or get recommendations from like-minded people anywhere or find like-minded people nearby to join them for activities they love to do. Recently launched in the United States, Glynk is available for download at the Google Play Store.
To keep pace with the growing number of users and activity on the app, Glynk started using Microsoft Azure services. Azure Virtual Machines helped Glynk overcome the security flaws that otherwise occur in virtual private servers.
"Social networks are all about connecting people, and each network connects users in a different way for a different purpose. Glynk complements this space well with a new dimension to connect users based on their interests and preferences. Social is an exciting space that witnesses high user bases and deep engagement, which makes Azure a natural choice for scaling," said Andrea Carl, director, Commercial Communications, Microsoft.
