Microsoft continues to improve its Azure solution combining it with Ethereum.
The new software, which has already been called Ethereum on Azure, gives the business the opportunity to create any products based on Ethereum. But without using the PoW consensus algorithm.
The important advantage of the product is the fact that smart contracts can be created using popular and common programming languages such as C, C ++ and Rust. Although smart contracts will be created on WebAssembly (Wasm) tools from Parity.
Besides that, blockchains on Ethereum can be deployed very quickly in just minutes. That also can be an important parameter for business.
