Azure Blockchain Service is Shutting Down:
Here's Why Staex is the Best Blockchain Management Platform for Your Business.
Blockchain consortia for business are notoriously hard to initiate and manage. Unifying infrastructure between multiple parties' backends and clouds is an incredibly difficult process, with firewalls, NATs, and business logic standing in the way. Operations are also difficult; nodes between different parties must be in sync with each other (from a configuration perspective) and all parties must ensure similar uptimes and updates to their systems. Additionally adding or removing consortium members complicates the operations of such a blockchain system even more. With these problems and countless others, it is clear why Azure offered a blockchain deployment and consortia management platform to its customers.
Now, however, that Microsoft is shuttering this service, you might be looking for an alternative to which to migrate. Luckily, Staex Swarm Clouds offer a best-in-class solution for blockchain consortia management and operations.
