Amazon Web Services takes on Blockchain with Kaleido and Ethereum
Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced it will be forging a partnership to help users more easily plug into blockchain technology in association Kaleido.
This is the first foray by AWS (Amazon Web Services) into the blockchain ecosystem and is the first blockchain SaaS solution available on the AWS Marketplace and they say it will will help users rapidly advance their blockchain projects.
The idea is to give AWS customers an “easy button” to get involved with blockchain, and the likes of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, whilst also remaining concentrated on their core businesses and not requiring excessive time and effort getting to grips with the technology and intricacies of the new trend.
As they say about merchants and the possibilities:
They can focus on their scenario and they don’t have to become PhDs is cryptography, we give them a simple platform to build their company on blockchain. They’ve (Amazon) been looking for partners to help get blockchain into their customers hands. They’re putting it in the marketplace, (that) will accelerate what their customers are going to do with it.
– Steve Cerveny, Kaleido founder
The partnership will be based on the Ethereum blockchain platform and, alongside AWS, Keleido say this “is a heavy duty, full stack way of getting the company into blockchain solutions.” But what does this mean on a practical day-to-day basis? We look forward to hearing your insights.
