ConsenSys, a leading Ethereum software company, today announced its strengthening the capabilities of their blockchain solutions by collaborating with Microsoft. ConsenSys is working with Microsoft to offer an Ethereum-based managed blockchain service to their Azure customers.
Both companies are working together to offer a service based on ConsenSys Quorum, an open-source protocol layer for developing with Ethereum.
This collaboration with Microsoft is designed to offer customers and business partners an easy path to building multi-cloud blockchain services, with additional permissions to ensure transaction privacy.
The service will offer users the ability to easily set up flexible blockchain nodes, thereby reducing the cost of enterprise blockchain deployment and developer programming time.
“Expanding our relationship with Microsoft helps organizations take advantage of ConsenSys Quorum and Quorum customer support; to offer users an enterprise-grade managed blockchain service that can be effortlessly set up and deployed. We are excited to bring the awarding-winning Quorum product to Azure users as the next step in our collaboration with Microsoft.”
