Amazon Web Services takes on Blockchain with Kaleido and Ethereum

ConsenSys’ Kaleido to Vend Blockchain to Amazon Web Services Clients

AWS, the cloud-computing subsidiary of tech and retail powerhouse Amazon, has reached an agreement with ConsenSys-backed Kaleido to provide their customers with Kaleido's streamlined blockchain SaaS platform.

Partner of the Year: Powerupcloud Technologies India Private Limited has won the award for its marquee wins across the industry, achieving Premier Consulting Partner status, and for competencies in the Big Data and DevOps space.

The best-known blockchain is the one that underpins the bitcoin cryptocurrency, while Ethereum is another kind of blockchain that enables software developers to build and deploy decentralized applications that run exactly as programmed without any chance of fraud, censorship or outside interference.

Steve Cerveny, enterprise lead at ConsenSys and founder of Kaleido, said, "Customers are running into a common set of problems and pitfalls as they invest significant time and money in their blockchain projects".

Kaleido Blockchain Business Cloud platform is an all-in-one blockchain platform aimed at speeding and simplifying enterprise use of the technology.

However, in a statement by AWS, it was declared that "introducing Kaleido to AWS customers is going to help customers move faster and not worry about managing blockchain themselves".

The result is that blockchain is more accessible and easier for customers to use, and even faster for them to connect blockchain solutions to AWS services securely. (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ: AMZN), announced that Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) has selected AWS as its preferred public cloud provider.

The AWS Partner Network (APN) is a global partner programme, focused on helping thousands of partners build successful businesses or solutions on AWS Cloud.

"They've been looking for partners to help get blockchain into their customers hands", Cerveny said, adding that "They're putting it in the marketplace will accelerate what their customers are going to do with it".

Responding to the decision taken by Amazon, Joseph Lubin, the founder of Ethereum blockchain, called this approach a "heavy-duty" move for getting into the world of the blockchain.

In other words, Kaleido has been developed in order to lower the barrier for entry to blockchain that has so far prevented a lot of organizations from experimenting with the technology. "Kaleido is the first software-as-a-service firm to feature popular Ethereum packages Geth and Quorum".

Amazon Web Solution provides cloud computing services to individual, worldwide companies and government on subscription basis.
