Lition, a blockchain for enterprises and regulated markets, announced today that Microsoft has officially integrated Lition as a blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) provider on Azure. This makes Lition one of the few public/private blockchains currently supported by a major cloud provider like Microsoft. The first to bring blockchain to the cloud, Microsoft continues to remain at the cutting edge of blockchain adoption.
Azure will provide Lition with the opportunity to gain additional traction and usage by making the technology visible to one of the largest customer bases and marketplaces in the industry. Organizations and businesses worldwide can now develop, test, and deploy Lition sidechains and applications easily and efficiently using Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing infrastructure.
Further, Lition’s user community will enjoy a higher grade of convenience with streamlined deployment and management. Anyone can deploy sidechains or join the network as a validator through preconfigured settings on Azure that are available with the click of a button. This eliminates the need for setting up local servers and manually installing nodes.
“Lition is committed to providing an accessible onramp to blockchain for all organizations. We believe that making integration as seamless as possible is vital to bridging the gap to adoption. Azure will be a tremendous asset for our customers. We are excited to bring Lition to their marketplace and show people just how easy it is to put blockchain to work for their business.”
