Public preview: Azure Blockchain Workbench
Posted on 07 May 2018
Azure Blockchain Workbench is the fastest way to get started with blockchain on Azure. It's now available in public preview.
This developer tool orchestrates an Azure-supported consortium network with a set of cloud services commonly needed to create working blockchain applications. Developers can link blockchain identities with Active Directory for easier log-in and collaboration. Store secrets and keys securely with Azure Key Vault and synchronize on-chain data with off-chain storage and databases to more easily query attestations and visualize ledger activity.
Workbench also makes it easy to integrate blockchain workflows with existing systems by using Microsoft Flow and Logic Apps and extend capabilities with a REST-based API for client development and a message-based API for system-to-system integration.
Available in the Azure Marketplace, Workbench simplifies initial application development. Businesses can spend less time on infrastructure scaffolding and more time on refining use cases and building smart contracts.
