The Information Store helps global petroleum companies access exploration and production data irrespective of where the data resides and presents it in a useful and familiar form. To maintain its competitive advantage, the company was eager to find a cost-effective way to extend its industry-leading PetroTrek solutions to independent oil producers. The company evaluated two "Software as a service" offerings and selected the Windows Azure platform - an Internet-scale "cloud services" platform that is hosted in Microsoft data centers - as the foundation for its online Digital Oilfield solution, along with Microsoft SQL Azure, the Silverlight browser plug-in, and Bing maps for enterprise.
