Azure, the cloud computing platform of Microsoft, announces that version 1.0 of the Microsoft Cloud computing development kit and third-party software as a service (SaaS) to the Ethereum network is now available.
The information was published on November 15 by Blockchain Marc Mercuri, Principal Engineer, on the company's website, emphasizing that this version highlights the development of three key issues: linking interfaces, integrating data and systems, and deploying intelligent contracts and logical application connectors for Ethereum.
Mercuri adds that the kit, called the "Azure Blockchain Development Kit", improves the capabilities of Microsoft Azure Blockchain Workbench. It includes features such as identity management and data processing outside the string, and the messaging application programming interface in a format that will allow companies to create their own decentralized applications (dApps) based on a block string.
The suite includes voice and SMS interfaces, Internet of Things (IoT) integration, mobile clients, robots, and virtual assistant support.
Also represents white paper name DevOps for Blockchain Smart Contracts (DevOps for Blockchain and Intelligent Contracts) that explains how to use the development kit for block-based applications in specific business environments. This document is accompanied by an implementation guide and shows how to implement continuous integration and continuous deliveries (CI / CD) for intelligent contracts.
In this regard, Mercuri says the goal is to run a large platform for developing block applications.
