STRATO for Windows will allow enterprises to develop, deploy, and test blockchain applications in a dedicated Windows environment. STRATO for Windows includes all the features available on the Linux versions including the STRATO RESTful API for connecting applications to private, semi­private (consortium) and public Ethereum blockchains. STRATO for Windows will be available on the Azure Marketplace in addition to a dedicated enterprise version for installation on existing machines.

BlockApps STRATO powers Visual Studio Solidity Extension

The new Visual Studio extension for Solidity is optimized for STRATO to simplify smart contract development and improve developer productivity. Developers will see the auto generated smart contract User Interfaces as extremely valuable for debugging and testing. The Solidity extension will be available on the Visual Studio Gallery and the Visual Studio Marketplace available to Visual Studio Community, Professional and Enterprise users.

“STRATO for Windows and Visual Studio optimization for STRATO are the results of our close collaboration with Microsoft and huge demand from our enterprise customers,’ says BlockApps CEO Victor Wong. “For the first time, the power of Ethereum blockchains is open to the entire Windows developer ecosystem.”

“We are excited to see the BlockApps team deliver the next innovative product offering on their roadmap for enterprises. BlockApps STRATO for Windows gives enterprise developers choice and the option to code blockchain applications on Windows in addition to the Linux option already published in the Azure Marketplace.” says Microsoft’s Yorke Rhodes, Global Blockchain Strategist.
