Amazon introduces Kaleido to simplify the use of blockchain for customers

Kaleido aims to optimize the onboarding process for enterprise consortium customers - something that's a major challenge in the space - while simplifying the operation of private blockchain networks. The company which will make it happen, Kaleido, was born out of leading blockchain incubator known as Consensys.

Overall, the goal of the company is to give AWS customer straightforward access to the same technology that underpins digital assets such as Bitcoin.

Announced at the ConsenSys blockchain conference in NY on Tuesday, the tech giant's cloud computing arm is partnering with a startup called Kaleido, which was born out of ConsenSys.

Steve Cerveny, enterprise lead at ConsenSys and founder of Kaleido, said, "Customers are running into a common set of problems and pitfalls as they invest significant time and money in their blockchain projects".

Kaleido becomes the first blockchain software as a service (SaaS) software available within the AWS marketplace, marking a milestone for Amazon in its greater use and application of the technology.

"They've been looking for partners to help get blockchain into their customers' hands", Cerveny said.

"Kaleido is making blockchain more accessible and easier to use for our customers and even faster to securely connect their blockchain solutions to the rest of AWS's fleet of services". "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".

Amazon Web Services is a subsidiary of Amazon that offers a paid subscription for cloud computing platforms to individuals, companies and governments.

The AWS Partner Network (APN) is a global partner programme, focused on helping thousands of partners build successful businesses or solutions on AWS Cloud. Joseph Lubin, Ethereum co-founder and ConsenSys founder, said, "Since the inception of ConsenSys in 2014, we have been on a mission to accelerate the adoption of Ethereum ..."

Lubin pointed that companies are deploying blockchain massively due to its impacts on their services.

"Three years ago we were getting calls from companies trying to spell blockchain and trying to order one in color because their boss told them they should get a blockchain". Kaleido is also compatible with many of Amazon's existing web services, including Amazon Athena, Amazon Elastic MapReduce, Amazon Virtual Private Cloud and others.

"Kaleido provides a full solution for those ready for something more than do-it-yourself scripts or templates, streamlining the process of standing up secure, private blockchain networks without sacrificing the ability to customize the environment".
