I am in contact with Microsoft on their Azure Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) offering.  My intention is to create a deployment template for a Witness Node & CLI Wallet on Unbuntu 14.04 LTS.  Thereafter, I intend to investigate creating a template for the UI and also a template for Windows instances.

I'll post a link here once the templates are accepted into BaaS.

Brief update:
The Azure BaaS Template for BitShares is complete and I am currently looking for beta testers prior to submission to Microsoft.  If you have access to an Azure subscription and are willing to run the template, please be in contact via direct message and I will provide you the link.  Once I have confidence it is functioning as expected, I will post the live link.

The template uses an Ubuntu 15.10 VM rather than 14.04 LTS, primarily due to ease of installing Boost from apt-get vs. building from source.  Other OS platforms may be added in the future. 

The template has the option to build from github source or use the PPA [member=3464]maqifrnswa[/member] maintains for the community [1].  A huge thanks for his contributions.

What's the big thing here? Isn't Microsoft that evil big corporation that produces unusable and annoying software and destroys projects that it "cooperates" with?

I worked for Nokia when Elop became CEO. When he announced that Nokia will start to use Windows I knew that it was the end Nokia phones. I'm still a little bit bitter about that.  >:(

Community is just being a little schizophrenic atm. On the one hand we want to get some name recognition via other companies that have some association with Bitshares. On the other we are trashing any relationships thus far made with any businesses that are supporting Bitshares at present: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,21699.0.html

Which other blockchains have a partners section?

Partners that end up being shady/duds can damage reputation especially in crypto where there is limited legal fallback which is why you see members doing a lot more due diligence where 'partners' are concerned but being a lot more welcoming of third party projects that support BTS, so personally I think it's probably a good distinction.



What do a handful of forum goers do? Have forum polls to make sure nobody who is a supporter of bitshares is ever seen or heard in the one small communication channel (the forum) that bitshares has. Not a plan for winning.

While I agree with the Change from Partners to Third Party Projects, I think something like the top 5 most popular should be directly listed on the forum.  (On the forum under 'Local', I would probably only directly list 'Chinese' and then put everything else in 'Other Global Areas' and save space there. )

Just the 2nd largest market cap one.. 4 sections of them: https://consensys.net/ventures/

OH.. and 2 days ago from the 3rd: https://ripple.com/insights/ripple-partners-with-crypto-facilities-for-xrp-derivatives/

It is basic good business and signal to investors. The idea to remove that from visibility only makes bitshares look like an unused product that isn't good enough for any company to want to adopt.

That would be a step forward. Though having a place away from the forum that is meant for this type of info would be most ideal.

Those are blog post and press releases. No problem with that. Show us the sections in their forums dedicated too them.
