Microsoft Azure’s blockchain service shutting down, users shifting to Quorum

ConsenSys announced it’s 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. ConsenSys acquired Quorum, an enterprise-variant of the Ethereum blockchain, from J.P. Morgan.

The collaboration 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.

“By working closely with ConsenSys, we will be able to provide our customers with an easy way to deploy and manage their blockchain pilots and production use cases running on Microsoft Azure,” said Mark Russinovich, CTO of Microsoft Azure, in a statement. “This collaboration is designed to take the complexity out of managing the infrastructure (hardware & software) that is necessary to run enterprise blockchains.”
