携手创企Kaleido,亚马逊加速区块链布局

本周二,云计算巨头亚马逊公司宣布,将与一家名为Kaleido的创业公司合作。

本次合作达成后,亚马逊AWS用户使用区块链产品的难度将大为降低。这也是AWS Marketplace上第一个区块链SaaS解决方案产品。

Ethereum区块链平台的创始人Joseph Lubin表示,这一合作或许能够进一步推动亚马逊的其他区块链产品发展。

AWS是亚马逊的子公司,主要为个人、公司和政府提供云计算平台的付费订阅服务。

其实除亚马逊外,微软、Facebook等科技巨头也在竞相试水区块链产业。

比如,Facebook上周宣布进行重组,其中就包括设立新的区块链部门,重点着力解决平台隐私问题。该实验区块链集团将由最近掌管Facebook Messenger团队的高管David Marcus负责。

此外,IBM、埃森哲、德勤、摩根大通和汇丰银行等机构和企业也都相继开展了区块链相关的计划和项目。

Amazon's cloud computing arm is looking to make it easier for customers to use blockchain with a new partnership announced Tuesday.

The cloud computing giant will team with a new start-up launching Tuesday called Kaleido, which was born out of leading blockchain incubator known as Consensys. The company is aiming to give AWS customers an "easy button" to get into the same technology that underpins bitcoin.

Blockchain technology records transactions on a public, distributed ledger, which advocates say gets rid of the need for a third party in many cases. The technology is touted as faster and more secure by advocates.

It is the first Blockchain SaaS solution available on the AWS Marketplace and will help them rapidly advance their blockchain projects."

Amazon Web Services is a subsidiary of Amazon that offers a paid subscription for cloud computing platforms to individuals, companies and governments. AWS is using a partner-led strategy instead of building from the ground up.

The founder of the Ethereum blockchain platform, which is what Kaleido and AWS will be using, said this is the biggest move yet by the tech giant to get into blockchain.

Blockchain can help Amazon in other arms of the ever-expanding business he said, using supply chain as one example. Lubin said Consensys, which oversees more than 50 blockchain projects, has seen a major increase in interest around the technology.

Amazon joins other tech giants including Microsoft and Facebook exploring use cases for blockchain.

Facebook announced last week it is going through a reorganization that will include a new blockchain effort and aims to address privacy concerns. The experimental blockchain group will be led by David Marcus, the executive most recently in charge of Facebook's Messenger group.

IBM, Accenture, Deloitte, JP Morgan, and HSBC are among the other corporate names working on blockchain initiatives.
