Ankr, a decentralized blockchain infrastructure provider, announced the release of its enterprise blockchain creation tool on Microsoft’s Azure Marketplace. The tool, known as “AppChains,” facilitates the creation of customized and flexible blockchains that can accommodate various Web3 approaches for businesses. In the beginning, software developers have the option to employ the Polygon Supernet, while additional alternatives will be accessible in the future.
Ankr and Microsoft have collaborated to provide dependable and user-friendly node hosting services to businesses and organizations that require access to blockchain data. The objective of the partnership was to enable this service through Microsoft’s Azure Marketplace, providing a user-friendly entry point to blockchain infrastructure for a vast number of clients.
The utilization of smart contracts and transaction relays effectively minimizes the amount of time that developers would typically allocate towards scaling their applications. The feature also facilitates the reading and writing of blockchain information. The developers at Ankr have conveyed that institutional clients in various sectors, including banking, central bank digital currencies, and gaming, have exhibited robust interest in AppChains. The enterprise affirms that the AppChain solution can be conveniently accessed through Microsoft’s Azure Marketplace, enabling companies to identify a validated solution and enter the market with the aforementioned use cases. AppChains guarantee prompt and cost-effective transactions, smooth user interactions, adherence to regulatory requirements, and comprehensive engineering.
The Head of Infrastructure at Ankr, Peter Stewart, has conveyed the company’s dedication to improving their tool by taking into account user feedback and performance metrics, with the guidance of Microsoft. The significance of the collaboration with Ankr in facilitating the smooth testing, deployment, and scaling of Web3 projects was underscored by Daniel An, who serves as the Director of Web3 and Artificial Intelligence Business Development at Microsoft.
At present, Ankr’s Web3 developer hub and software development services are capable of supporting more than 30 blockchains. The company has been designated as the official infrastructure partner for constructing projects on the BNB Chain, Polygon, and Avalanche ecosystems
