Lition, a commercial blockchain, announced on February 18 that Microsoft has officially brought the Lition blockchain solution to its Azure cloud marketplace.
This makes Lition one of the few public / private block chains that is currently supported by a large cloud provider such as Microsoft. Microsoft also became the first to bring blockchain to the cloud and remains at the forefront of blockchain acceptance.
By integrating Lition blockchain into Azure, Microsoft Azure’s global enterprise customers can develop, test, and deploy Lition side chains and applications at the click of a button on the platform, according to the announcement. Dr. Richard Lohwasser, CEO of Lition, added that:
“Lition strives to offer an accessible onramp for blockchain for all organizations. We believe that integration that is as seamless as possible is vital to bridge the adoption gap. Azure will be a great asset to our customers. “
According to the announcement, Azure is the driving force behind Microsoft’s cloud activities. The platform currently has the second largest share in the public cloud market of $ 229 billion, mainly for large corporate customers. Azure’s customers include more than 95% of Fortune 500 companies, including Walmart, Coca-Cola, Boeing and Samsung.
