Business interest in blockchain technology is increasing due the potential for change that it offers. Large scale adoption in enterprise IT environments brings about a need for service management and DevOps processes for blockchain deployments. Nodes in the network may fail or be taken down for maintenance requiring visibility across hybrid, traditional, cloud enabled and cloud native deployments. Service management is necessary to ease deployment woes for those looking to install code within their own data centers on-premises or on dedicated cloud servers and further to handle the life cycle of the deployments that includes security patches, critical updates, upgrades, change management and restarting services. In this paper, we provide a mechanism to optimally perform such operations with no disruption to the consensus and transactions for such emerging blockchain applications.
