漫談 Azure Block-Chain-As-A-Service 下集 – 微軟Block Chain服務


Azure Block-Chain-As-A-Service 下集 - 微軟Block Chain服務
Authored by Michael Yen-Chi Ho Current AEM @Microsoft

上集的內容裡面,提到關於BlockChain(區塊鍊),Bitcoin(比特幣)的發展與概觀,以及大致上運作的邏輯,而下集我們要介紹的內容就是如何開始運用Microsoft Azure開始進行自己的Block-Chain實驗,以及開始創造以Block-Chain技術核心為主的各項應用

Azure Block-Chain-As-A-Service (Azure Block Chain 服務)來自2015年,11/9號的最新消息中,微軟資訊策略長Marley Gray提出的Ethereum on Azure as a Service的消息,隨後在11/25日在DevCon中展示了如何快速的在Azure中建立Ethereum BlockApps - (私有鍊Ethereum的Blockchain Azure環境),以及在Ubuntu環境之下建立Azure Ethereum環境,讓想要使用BlockChain技術的開發者可以快速的運用微軟龐大的資料中心做運算與開發。

因為微軟過去服務的大多是企業客戶,因此在全世界公有雲的市場中符合最多的國際規範,也讓微軟的Azure雲端服務能夠服務各式各樣的客戶,從支付產業、金融產業、到IoT產業、健康醫療產業,甚至上太空的NASA等,採用Azure讓各種企業用戶,從新創公司到大企業都能符合世界規範,並且促成世界級的Business。

此外,因為微軟過去是軟體公司起家,走到雲端平台服務上的最大好處在能夠融合過去的所長,創造各式各樣的PaaS服務,BlockChain能夠結合微軟既有的各種服務,如Active Directory(身分識別管理)、Key Vault(金鑰管理)、Machine Learning(機器學習服務)、Event Hubs(事件中樞)等服務,讓開發者可以活用BlockChain服務,並且串連其他各項服務,組成自己的新服務。

透過Block Chain,可以創造各種應用,如智慧合約(合約可以根據所有POOL裡面的變化量而改變)、IoT控管(所有Sensor可以有效管理收、送的各項訊息,並且即時上雲),而因為Azure上面豐富的安全性與隱私保護,新創公司也能輕鬆建立自己的BlockChain服務。

在短短的一個月內,Azure開始與各個種BlockChain應用的大廠合作,從*Ethereum開始,到ConsenSys、Ripple、Eris、CoinPrism、Fatcom這些服務。
接著各種Payment Service像**BitPay、Manifold Technology、LibraTax、Emercoin
到2016年1/28最近一次更新,***Multi Chain & Netki這兩個專門設計快速佈署的BlockChain As a Service都上線到Azure上面供大家開始開發與運作,Azure立誓要成為最方便的BlockChain開發、測試、營運平台。

加上Azure對Open Source的豐富支援,以及本身開源的Azure(Azure Github),使這個平台有最豐富的資源可以發展各項創新的業務!
