Note: This template will be deprecated as of 31st August, 2020. Parity Ethereum has transitioned to OpenEthereum DAO which is community driven. Parity Ethereum put out a blog on why they moved to community based approach here. Azure Blockchain team wants our customers to adopt Azure Blockchain Service which supports a Ethereum based ledger i.e. Quorum as we will be able to provide better support and SLA for our managed service. Also, we do not see much demand for Etheruem POA template and with recent changes of Parity Ethereum moving to OpenEthereum, the template offering will soon be obsolete. Hence we encourage customers to use Azure Blockchain Service instead as Ethereum on Azure template is on its path to deprecation.
We are excited to support Blockchain on Microsoft Azure with a set of solution templates that deploy and configure your choice of blockchain network with minimal Azure and blockchain knowledge.
With a handful of user inputs and a simple single-click deployment through the Azure portal, you can provision a fully configured blockchain network topology in minutes, using Microsoft Azure compute, networking, and storage services across the globe. Rather than spending hours building out and configuring the infrastructure, we have automated these time-consuming pieces to allow you to focus on building out your scenarios and applications. You are only charged for the underlying infrastructure resources consumed, such as compute, storage, and networking. There are no incremental charges for the solution itself.
For questions related to this offering, please refer to our support forum.
