Microsoft Adds Support for Additional Blockchain Protocols in Azure – InfoQ

In advance of the Coindesk Consensus 2017 conference, Microsoft announced additional blockchain protocol support in Azure. These new investments include support for more complex blockchain and distributed ledger network deployments, including HyperLedger Fabric, R3 Corda, Quorum, Chain Core and BlockApps.

Microsoft previously focused on simpler topologies, such as dev/test environments, inside Azure and are now adding support for more complex topologies. Christine Avanessians, a senior program manager at Microsoft, explains why Microsoft is expanding their offering:

Initially, we targeted dev/test topologies, partnering with organizations such as R3, Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, Chain, and BlockApps, to deliver development and demo machines for a variety of protocols. We received ample positive feedback and expanded support to more complex topologies as customers began work on more advanced scenarios.
