Quosal wanted to offer a hosted version of its quote and proposal software to customers around the world, but this would require building three new data centers. After Microsoft launched the Windows Azure platform, Quosal turned to Microsoft SQL Azure, a cloud-based, relational database platform built on Microsoft SQL Server technologies, as an alternative to building its own global hosting infrastructure.

In 10 months, Quosal increased its customer base by 15 percent and global sales by 50 percent—while avoiding a planned U.S.$300,000 in infrastructure costs and ongoing monthly maintenance costs of $6,000.
