The first part of our article series discussed the Azure cloud platform offering for blockchain development as well as differences between Azure marketplace template and manual configuration. We also took our first step toward building Hyperledger Fabric blockchain applications on Azure by deploying Orderer and Peer organizations. We continue our journey by covering how to set up the development environment configure Orderer and Peer and setting pods and volume mounts for our Fabric application in this article.
In this next article we cover the following.

It should be noted that while this article is intended to be beginner friendly it would be helpful to have prior familiarity with Azure Kubernetes APIs and Azure Kubernetes Service AKS. Also a good knowledge of Hyperledger Fabric and its components is required to follow steps discussed in this article. The topics and steps covered in this article are very useful for those interested in doing blockchain consulting and development.
