Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced new AWS Blockchain Templates for the integration of the Ethereum blockchain with their cloud services. The purpose of Amazon’s integration with the Ethereum blockchain is to provide an easy way to deploy blockchain networks with their open source frameworks.
From the Amazon press release …
AWS Blockchain Templates provide a fast and easy way to create and deploy secure blockchain networks using open source frameworks. Blockchain is a technology that makes it possible to build applications where multiple parties can record transactions without the need for a trusted, central authority to ensure that transactions are verified and secure. Blockchain enables this by establishing a peer-to-peer network where each participant in the network has access to a shared ledger where the transactions are recorded. These transactions are by design, immutable and independently verifiable.
It’s exciting to see the cloud service operators starting to take notice of blockchain and Dapp technology.
