Blockchain networks have become important asset for companies to provide decentralized, secure, and transparent transactions. However, to create such a network requires specialists in peer-to-peer distributed network architecture and cryptography, both of which have difficult learning curves and thus make it troublesome to change their current business process. Amazon Web Services (AWS), a subsidiary of Amazon.com that provides cloud computing platforms to various users, plans to rid of that obstacle.
ConsenSys is partnering with AWS to launch and operate blockchain networks on AWS so that companies don’t have to spend the time and money on creating their own blockchain from scratch. With ConsenSys’ help, it will be possible for enterprises to seamlessly adopt the world of a decentralized network with Ethereum.
Kaleido Blockchain Business Cloud platform is an all-in-one blockchain platform that offers a full solution for setting up private blockchain networks with customization options. Kaleido allows users to skip the prerequisite knowledge and jump right in to tailoring the network to their specific needs. It can relay and anchor transactions from Kaleido networks directly onto the public Ethereum Mainnet, provide integrated analytics, and support multiple protocol options (Geth and Quorum) and consensus mechanisms (RAFT, POA, and IBFT).
As Kaleido runs on AWS, it lets users utilize many more useful AWS services such as Amazon EMR for analytics, Amazon Athena, for rich query, Amazon CloudWatch for logs and monitoring, Amazon Virtual Private Cloud for private networking, Amazon Simple Storage Service for storage, and much more. This will make the blockchain service more accessible and easier for users to utilize securely.
If Kaleido is just what you need for your enterprise, it is available on the AWS marketplace.
