The Manatee application has been developed using Microsoft .NET technologies, however the hosting platform has been a hotly debated topic within the Tech Team. After a lengthy technology review process we have chosen the Microsoft Azure platform as our cloud provider for the application.
“Lead Architect Matt Howe states that the Microsoft Azure platform was hard to ignore, with its wide array of services, multi-tiered performance model and ease of use. It's second to none and constantly improving every month.”
The Manatee application will be undergoing some significant changes over the coming months to fully support the cloud service model that Microsoft offer; unlike many legacy applications making the jump to cloud hosting, we intend to benefit fully from the full range of features Microsoft have on offer.
