亚马逊BaaS服务正式上线,区块链成为大型企业的必争之地

上周晚些时候,亚马逊网络服务公司(AWS)宣布推出一款区块链模板产品。亚马逊公司希望,能够借助这个区块链即服务(BaaS)的产品与甲骨文和IBM的类似产品进行竞争。

虽然用户还并不太能够理解区块链到底能给他们带来什么用处,但是这款新产品还是证明了这家大型企业想要在区块链行业争得领先地位的迫切愿望。

在一篇有关如何使用区块链模板的博客文章中,AWS副总裁Jeff Barr表示:

“在以往的沟通中我发现,有些人认为区块链是新型货币体系的基础,也是促进国际支付的一种方式。还有人则认为,区块链是分布式账本和不变数据源,可应用于物流、供应链、土地注册、众筹和其他用例......总而言之,区块链在许多方面都拥有巨大的潜力空间,而我们要做的就是努力帮助客户更有效地使用这项技术。”

AWS区块链模板能够让AWS区块链app用户更快捷地设置Ethereum或Hyperledger Fabric网络。它比甲骨文在Oracle OpenWorld大会期间推出的建立在开源Hyperledger Fabric项目上的云服务晚了半年,比IBM公布的基于自有Hyperledger的BaaS晚了大概一年时间。

BaaS市场另一个新的竞争对手是华为,上周在深圳举行的分析师大会上,华为宣布了其基于Hyperledger的区块链服务。而此前,包括百度、腾讯等多家中国科技巨头也纷纷开始试水区块链市场。

Amazon  Web Services announced Blockchain Templates late last week, a “blockchain-as-a-service” offering that competes with similar products from Oracle and IBM. The launch shows how eager the biggest enterprise players are to get ahead in the blockchain game, even if their customers are still trying to pinpoint exactly what blockchain can do for them (and some investors are starting to temper their initial excitement).

In a blog post about how to use Blockchain Templates, AWS vice president and chief evangelist Jeff Barr acknowledged the lack of clarity by referencing a 1970s “Saturday Night Live” sketch about Shimmer Floor Wax, a floor polish that is also a non-dairy dessert topping.

“Some of the people that I talk to see blockchains as the foundation of a new monetary system and a way to facilitate international payments. Others see blockchains as a distributed ledger and immutable data source that can be applied to logistics, supply chain, land registration, crowdfunding and other use cases,” he wrote. “Either way, it’s clear that there are a lot of intriguing possibilities and we are working to help our customers use this technology more effectively.

AWS Blockchain Templates give AWS users working on blockchain apps a faster way to set up Ethereum or Hyperledger Fabric networks. Its launch comes six months after Oracle unveiled its cloud service built on the open-source Hyperledger Fabric project during Oracle OpenWorld and about a year after IBM announced its own Hyperledger-based blockchain-as-a-service offering.

Another new competitor in the BaaS market is Huawei, which announced its Blockchain Service, also built on Hyperledger, last week during its analyst conference in Shenzhen. It joins other Chinese tech companies, including Baidu and Tencent, that already had blockchain platforms.
