The Azure Blockchain Workbench is the fastest way to get started with blockchain on Azure. This tool allows developers to deploy a blockchain ledger along with a set of relevant Azure services most often used to build a blockchain-based application. Rather than spending hours configuring the required infrastructure and cloud services, we have automated the time-consuming scaffolding to simplify development and allow users to focus on application logic and workflows.

With a handful of user inputs in a click-through deployment experience in the Azure portal, users can easily deploy the Workbench environment, which comes equipped with sample cross-organizational workflows and smart contracts as well as an out of the box UI and admin experience.

Deploying Workbench will result in the following Azure services being provisioned in your Azure subscription.

  • App Service Plan (Standard)
  • Application Insights
  • Event Grid
  • Azure Key Vault
  • Service Bus
  • SQL Database (Standard S0) + SQL Logical Server
  • Azure Storage account (Standard LRS)
  • Virtual Machine scale set with capacity of 1
  • Virtual Network resource group (with Load Balancer, Network Security Group, Public IP Address, Virtual Network)
  • Optional: Azure Blockchain Service (Basic B0 default)

Note: The cost of Blockchain Workbench is an aggregate of the cost of the underlying Azure services. Pricing information for these services can be found here. Usage amounts and billing details for your subscription can be found in the Azure Portal.
