E-Commerce Challenger Eyes the Top Spot, Runs on the Microsoft Cloud
Marc Lore is perhaps best known as the creator of the popular e-commerce site Diapers.com, which was eventually sold to Amazon. Now, entrepreneurs and their team are ready to compete head-on with the e-retailing giant through an innovative online marketplace called Jet.com. To get up and running quickly, Jet built its entire e-commerce platform, including development and delivery infrastructure, on Microsoft Azure, using both .NET and open-source technologies. The Microsoft visual studio development system is the primary IDE for back-end infrastructure, with node being used on the front end.
