Hi there Ho there Hey there !! Today in this blog we will see Difference between Azure Workbench and Azure Blockchain as Service. Let’s see what are the major differences.
Collection of Azure services and capabilities designed to help you create and deploy blockchain applications to share business processes and data with other organisations.
Blockchain Workbench provides access to client apps to create and manage users and blockchain applications.
Azure Blockchain Workbench simplifies consortium blockchain network setup as a pre-configured solution with an Azure Resource Manager solution template. The template provides simplified deployment that deploys all components needed to run a consortium. With template there are some limitations.
Using Azure workbench for long time, POA will run out of disk and lot of issues will happen.
Azure Workbench built on predefined template on Ethereum Protocol.
ABS (Azure Blockchain as Service)
Azure Blockchain is a fully managed ledger service, provide users the ability to grow and operate blockchain networks at scale in Azure.
It Simple network deployment and operations.
Built-in consortium management we can add admin and members without any limitations.
Take care of scaling your nodes and make sure you have storage available and keeping your nodes up to date and healthy.
Supports multiple protocols .
In my opinion , Azure Workbench is good for creating prototype. And also Connect to common business tools but when it comes from scaling point of view and managing consortium . We need to consider ABS. With Azure Blockchain Workbench 1.7.0 release integration with Azure Blockchain Service. This could be good solution in terms integration with existing apps, scalability and consortium management point of view. For more details you refer this link.
