Few months back, Microsoft announced Project Bletchley which outlines Microsoft’s vision for an open, modular blockchain fabric powered by Azure, and highlights new elements they believe are key in enterprise blockchain architecture. Today, they announced the launch of an early version of the Bletchley v1 infrastructural substrate.

By leveraging the capabilities of Microsoft Azure Resource Manager (ARM), we have shipped an Azure Quickstart Template to make it sufficiently easier and quicker to deploy and configure a consortium Ethereum network with minimal Azure and Ethereum knowledge.  With a handful of user inputs and a simple single-click deployment, you can provision a fully configured blockchain network topology consisting of many nodes in minutes, using Microsoft Azure compute, networking, and storage services across the globe.

Microsoft will be releasing updates often to get the feedback and updates including support for additional Microsoft services, like Azure Active Directory and Key Vault, and other blockchain protocols are coming soon.
