Microsoft continues to unite various platforms that provide a possibility to create personal decentralized applications within their partner program BaaS (Blockchain-as-a-Service). This time to the cloud service Azure a platform Stratis was added – it provides the whole functionality for creating blockchain-applications.

Shift to Cloud

Such step will allow developers to receive more comfortable access to the platform and therefore to develop and test their own dapps. Startups and technology companies will have a possibility to use already created solutions and workouts, such approach will help to seriously save the expenses for their deployment, and time spent for that.

First steps that can be done – the start of work on decentralized platform Stratis nodes, which use the operating system Ubuntu. The creation of nodes will be very simple, developers will have to do only few simple actions.

Start of Cooperation

According to the words of Stratis CEO Chris Trew, the event is only the first step of the close cooperation with Microsoft within the service BaaS and further integration, since Stratis is actually specialized on developing tools customized for Microsoft products. So it is natural that their platform has been added to the list of blockchain-platforms that are already present in the cloud.  

One should remember that recently Microsoft, within the program BaaS as well, added a product Easy NXT to its cloud service Microsoft Azure, and before that it certified for the work in a cloud the platform for smart-contracts Еthereum.

The main goal of Stratis is providing instruments for the shift of financial institutions to the work in blockchain, to improve workability and reliability. The company plans to provide consulting services and offer necessary instruments to test the new technologies.
