build out a suite of products based on its technology, including MimviLink™, a
mobile advertising network that matches relevant mobile apps to content.

mobile apps and backend infrastructures to the Windows Azure cloud and/or the
Windows Phone Store.
Kasian Franks, Founder and CVO of Mimvi states, "Windows Azure is a great
match for Mimvi's growing technology needs. The mobile space is exploding with
apps, and without good search technology and a strong cloud foundation to

Mimvi well," says Franks.

search and discovery technologies and applications across a global network of
Microsoft-managed datacenters. Windows Azure will help enable Mimvi to quickly
provide clients and partners with the services they need in an increasingly
