M12 is excited to announce that developers can now deploy the Space and Time data warehouse directly from the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. With the one-click deployment, Azure customers can easily access, manage, and perform analytics on blockchain-native data, providing an accelerated on-ramp to the benefits of a decentralized data warehouse.
In September 2022, we led a strategic funding round for Space and Time, recognizing their leadership in Web3 data warehousing. Today’s news is the next step in their journey that will enable more developers and enterprises to easily access and leverage blockchain-native data.
The one-click deployment of Space and Time on the Azure Marketplace provides developers with a trustless intermediary to quickly and easily onboard large volumes of enterprise data to smart contracts, as well as new use cases for indexed blockchain data.
The integration allows businesses to leverage the benefits of a decentralized data warehouse without rearchitecting their existing infrastructure, enabling enterprises to build on the blockchain without sacrificing compute power or security. The comprehensive Microsoft Azure cloud services and industry-leading identity and security capabilities provide a trusted set of services and tools to develop Web3 applications in this new era of ubiquitous computing. Together, Microsoft and Space and Time are connecting enterprises to blockchain data and making it easier and faster for developers to build in Web3.
“At Microsoft, we are empowering growth across emerging markets—including blockchain and distributed data. Together, Microsoft Azure and Space and Time will provide developers with the tools they need to build the next generation of blockchain use cases.”
—Kathleen Mitford, Corporate Vice President, Global Industry Marketing, Microsoft
Space and Time, a leader in Web3 data warehousing, is unique in that it joins real-time data indexed from major blockchains with customer-provided off-chain datasets. The Space and Time hybrid transactional and analytic (HTAP) data warehouse comes pre-loaded with real-time indexed blockchain data, provided for free. The one-click deployment enables Azure customers to easily integrate the Space and Time data warehouse with their existing enterprise infrastructure, generating new use cases for base-layer blockchains and developers of decentralized applications.
“The need for verifiable data between blockchains, enterprises and AI has never been more important. We’re excited to partner with Microsoft to enable Azure customers to bridge on-chain and off-chain data and integrate blockchain technology with the enterprise application stack.”
—Nate Holiday, CEO and Co-founder, Space and Time
At M12, we are proud to be part of this partnership between Microsoft and Space and Time, and we look forward to seeing the exciting new Web3 use cases that developers will create with the benefits of blockchain-native data. Together, we can empower growth across emerging markets and industries, and help businesses become responsible data stewards in the new age of AI.
