Twilio in Pact with Microsoft for Windows Azure Apis
Twilio (http://www.twilio.com), the cloud communications company, today announced a renewed alliance with Microsoft to make Twilio's voice and messaging APIs easily available to Windows Azure customers, including expanding availability on Windows Azure Mobile Services. The relationship, which was formally introduced in May 2012, has introduced Twilio to tens of thousands of Windows Azure developers, who now will have access to the Twilio API through Windows Azure Mobile Services. Mobile Services allow developers to easily create scalable and secure mobile apps for the Windows Store that utilize features such as structured storage, user authentication, and push notifications. Partnering with Twilio adds two-factor authentication, SMS messages triggered by database updates, and many other capabilities to that feature suite. Developers building Windows Store and iOS apps will be able use Mobile Services with Twilio today. Support for Android and Windows Phone will follow in subsequent preview releases.
