Amazon Web Services (AWS) is investing in blockchain through the partner ecosystem and infrastructure services.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers deep capabilities and the largest global infrastructure to create end-to-end blockchain platforms, at low cost and on a large scale. APN Technology and Consulting partners offer a rapidly growing selection of blockchain and distributed ledger solutions supporting multiple protocols.
In addition to the inherent capabilities of cloud computing, AWS supports an increasing number of blockchain technologies, providing a low-cost, secure and quickly deployable platform where organizations can experiment and develop decentralized applications.
AWS is a quick and easy way to create and deploy secure blockchain networks using the famous open source frameworks of Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric. These are AWS CloudFormation models that automate the creation and configuration of networks on Amazon EC2 or Amazon ECS.
“We are launching AWS Blockchain Templates today. These templates will let you launch an Ethereum (either public or private) or Hyperledger Fabric (private) network in a matter of minutes and with just a few clicks. The templates create and configure all of the AWS resources needed to get you going in a robust and scalable fashion.”
Blockchain technology allows you to create applications in which multiple parties can log transactions without the need for a reliable central authority to ensure that transactions are verified and protected.
This technology allows this by establishing a peer-to-peer network in which each participant in the network has access to a shared ledger, in which transactions are recorded. These transactions are designed, immutable and independently verifiable.
Amazon Web Service allows you to access flexible and cost-effective resources to quickly implement and test these new networks in minutes and pay only for what you use.
