Action Required: Migrate your Azure Blockchain Service data by 10 September 2021

Published date: May 14, 2021

Based on recent changes in the blockchain industry and the growing business needs of our customers, we are collaborating with ConsenSys, one of our blockchain technology providers, to offer a managed offering of their blockchain ledgers on Azure. As a result of this, combined with lowered interest in our existing offering, we are retiring Azure Blockchain Service on 10 September 2021.

ConsenSys is an industry leader in Ethereum solutions, with products to support a range of blockchain applications. As a preferred destination for Azure Blockchain Service users, ConsenSys will offer Quorum Blockchain Service, a service built on ConsenSys Quorum®. Because it’s built on the same Quorum technology, it’s fully compatible with Azure Blockchain Service and will provide a seamless migration experience.

We know that Blockchain remains an important service to your workload and recommend you transition to the ConsenSys Quorum Blockchain Service before Azure Blockchain Service is retired on 10 September 2021.

To see instructions on how to export your data from Azure Blockchain Service, and to see recommended alternatives,please refer to ourmigration guide. To migrate to the Quorum Blockchain Service, contact ConsenSys by registering at their website.
