Question:

Deployment of Blockchain Dapp application on cloud!

William: 5 weeks ago

I have my dapp in progress using PrivateNet, Metamask, HTML, CSS, JAVASCRIPT & Solidity in Ethereum. After the finishing of my application I just wanted to host my application on cloud. As of now when I searched for the deployment, I didn't get such blockchain environment like Heroku . Can any one suggest the ennvironment for hosting?

You can host your DApp in cloud. It is important to know what exactly you want to host there. Most probably you will have two parts, web application and blockchain.

  • web application - HTML, CSS, JAVASCRIPT and smart contracts. Purpose of web application is access point, users can open your DApp via accessing url and loading DApp to client.
  • blockchain - you can also host it in cloud, you need to run VM. You can run Ethereum full node there. I'm not sure that you want to handle it, because you need quite lots of space. You can use Infura instead.

I never saw hosting with prepared blockchain, usually everyone run it for their own.

In Azure you can find prepared VM snapshots for Ethereum, but you need to install it on your subscription, manage it and pay for it.
