Amazon and ConsenSys-Built Kaleido Launches Full-Stack Marketplace
Blockchain software-as-a-service (SAS) project Kaleido has launched a marketplace to provide its users with a “full-stack enterprise platform.”
Their “Blockchain Business Cloud” now features a “new marketplace [of] trusted tools and services from Kaleido, AWS, and members of the new partnership program, all offered as plug-and-play.” The suite of services will feature oracles, wallet and ID services, supply chain tools and even legal contract software.
According to a company statement, “Clients now have access to native AWS integrations, popular services such as HD wallets for privacy and ID registries for organizational identity, as well as industry products such as Chainlink for smart contract oracles, Viant for supply chain management, OpenLaw and Clause.io for real-time legal contracts, and many others—all at the click of a button.”
Kaleido, which went live in May 2018, is one of many managed by ConsenSys. Built on Ethereum, the platform is a hybrid blockchain that allows enterprises to manage a private chain that can sync with the Ethereum mainnet, housing “several consensus algorithms (RAFT, POA, and IBFT) that its users can toggle between.” The software-as-a-service is available on Amazon Web Services (AWS), and it runs on AWS’ cloud framework.
Since its launch, the press release claims that “Kaleido has helped organizations create over 1,000 blockchain networks with its Blockchain Business Cloud.”
“The reality is only about 10 percent of an enterprise blockchain project is the blockchain itself. There are many other application, data and infrastructure components required to go into production. I’m very excited that we have a whole cloud of blockchain technologies pre-integrated for our clients to use. The Kaleido Marketplace is a one-stop shop for all things enterprise blockchain,” founder and CEO of Kaleido, Steve Cerveny, said in light of the announcement.
Kaleido is also launching a partnership program integrated with the marketplace, inviting third-party developers “to join the ecosystem by promoting their offerings in the Kaleido Marketplace, embedding Kaleido in their own blockchain solutions, or accelerating client engagements by using Kaleido.”
