This integrated solutions can be up and run in 20 minutes or less with the pleasure of enjoying continuous benefits afforded by customizable and re-usable deployment script.

BridgeChain can be utilized as a springboard for creating one’s own BridgeChain as illustrated here. The process will require an active Microsoft Azure account with a basic knowledge of how to connect via SSH.
