Microsoft also became the first to bring blockchain to the cloud and continues to remain at the cutting edge of blockchain adoption.
Integrating Lition blockchain into Azure allows Microsoft Azure’s worldwide enterprise clients to develop, test and deploy Lition side chains and applications with a click of a button on its platform.
Dr. Richard Lohwasser, Lition’s CEO said:
“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..”
According to the announcement, Azure is the driving force behind Microsoft’s cloud business. The platform currently has the second-largest share of the $229 billion public cloud market, primarily catering to large enterprise clients. Azure’s clients include over 95% of Fortune 500 companies, including Walmart, Coca-Cola, Boeing, and Samsung.
