Verizon adopts AWS as preferred public cloud provider

Harry and Meghan Amazon Replicates Facebook, Microsoft, Partners Startup Built on Ethereum (ETH) Blockchain

"What Salesforce did for CRMs, Kaleido will do for blockchain".

"AWS's innovative technologies have been very beneficial as we have grown our public cloud footprint over the years, and that is why we've chosen to expand our strategic relationship", Atte Lahtiranta, Oath's CTO, said in a statement at the time.

Cloud computing firm Amazon Web Services (AWS) has partnered a startup incubated by Ethereum co-founder's firm, in order to make it easier for its clients to build their companies on blockchain. "We are excited to work with Telefónica to enable the digital transformation of enterprise customers and help them leverage the scalability and breadth of services that AWS offers".

Kaleido is the first enterprise blockchain platform to utilize Ethereum, the most proven smart contract platform in the market today.

Enterprises have business needs driven by security, compliance, ownership, privacy, and scalability requirements, which can bring additional complexity to their blockchain projects. Amazon recently announced the launch of instant blockchain templates for both Ethereum and Hyperledger, but the Kaleido solution is the first Software-as-a-Service that delivered via AWS that will feature popular Ethereum packages Geth and Quorum. The service offers the ability to switch between configurations of the underlying Ethereum protocol.

For example, users can quickly change the consensus algorithm to tailor the network to specific requirements.

"The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance is a large and vibrant community", said Ron Resnick, Executive Director, Enterprise Ethereum Alliance.

Michigan State Settles Nassar Claims for $500 Million
Amid the fallout, the university president resigned , the state attorney general opened a criminal investigation, and Dr. Michigan State and lawyers for 332 victims announced Wednesday that they have reached a $500 million settlement.

Kaleido has already been quietly piloted by several consortia.

"Companies are eager to capture the potential of blockchain but to date have struggled to move experimental projects forward into live production networks", ConsenSys explained in their announcement release.

"This is a heavy duty, full stack way of getting the company into blockchain solutions", said Joseph Lubin, founder of Ethereum, whose network, the two platforms will be depending upon.

The move will let companies uninitiated in the cryptoverse quickly embrace the space's keystone tech, blockchain, with as little friction as possible.

John Hurley, Ryanair's CTO, said: "Machine learning is hugely important to our growth, and we're pursuing a variety of AWS machine learning services, including Amazon SageMaker, to enhance customer UI experience and personalise the MyRyanair portal for every unique traveller".

Kaleido represents the first "dual mode" use of Ethereum, enabling private, permissioned Ethereum-based systems to link with public, permissionless Ethereum to achieve an element of trustworthiness that has previously been unobtainable.

More about ConsenSys ConsenSys is a global formation of technologists and entrepreneurs building the infrastructure, applications, and best practices to enable a decentralized world. ConsenSys is dedicated to growing the Ethereum-based blockchain ecosystem through various domains including ConsenSys Solutions, ConsenSys Capital, ConsenSys Labs, and ConsenSys Academy.
