The problem was that our platform was slow and couldn't support the growth we expected. We knew we needed to move the platform to the cloud and in a timely manner. After moving our core website to Azure, we decided to experiment with Azure websites on some of the platform features. For our 'Showcase' Facebook app we chose node.js. We started coding on Friday and demoed the application on the following Wednesday. The previous version of the 'Showcase' app took several months to complete. Since then we have moved several other platform features over to WAWS. The flexibility and agility they offer us make it an easy decision.
