Amazon Blockchain Technology
Top brand Amazon decided to lunch their own blockchain service for their customer to develop the blockchain network. Their clients will have no fees for their own crypto ecosystem platform. One of the Amazons related conferences they announce is the Amazon Blockchain Technology. They want to make a blockchain network that will be an easy to maintain and scalable blockchain network.
Amazon users can create their own platform with either Hyperledger Fabric or Ethereum network. Amazon is going to start a new service this way. It is another web service on their brand. Already this giant tech company provided service cloud computing service. Moreover, Netflix is another promising service of Amazon.
Amazon Quantum Ledger Database
As per their website post, they are going to build blockchain networks to fulfill a lot of applications to start a million transactions. Moreover, they announce their blockchain network can store data to another database product.
“Managed Blockchain can replicate an immutable copy of your blockchain network activity into Amazon Quantum Ledger Database (QLDB), a fully managed ledger database. This allows you to easily analyze the network activity outside the network and gain insights into trends.”
This QLDB actually not a blockchain platform, but it will work as a bridge with amazon blockchain products to “maintain a complete and verifiable history of data changes.”
Amazon blockchain technology service is really the primary step. But those who are interested and want to get the service can sign up. Who are get eligible can create their blockchain network. In this way, they can invite another amazon service for the members. You can add more members to your blockchain account network as per the Amazon blockchain technology FAQ section.
What To Do with Amazon Blockchain Technology
Users can manage multiple Amazon web service (AWS) blockchain network accounts with the open-source framework. Further, the platform will be on the Hyperledger Fabric and Ethereum network. This blockchain ecosystem allows clients to transfer various data with an Ethereum distributed ledger.
Moreover, users are able to vote who is invited to the platform. Also analytics on the network activities you can reply data to the Amazon QLDB for safe storage and off-time data.
Start And Access On Amazon Managed Blockchain?
Simply to start with AWS go to the site and sign up for an account as per their requirement and wait for the approval. If you get the approval then go to create your own amazon blockchain network. Follow the initial tutorial wizard step to build your network and membership. At this step simply invite members to join the platform on your blockchain network to build a multi-member network.
To access your AWS account, you need AWS tools like (CLI), (SDK), etc. To integrate with Ethereum network or Hyperledger fabric though there have different categories. For example, AWS certificate authority, AWS is ordering service, and peer nodes. You might use Hyperledger Fabric CLI and SDK.
How To Build An AWS Blockchain Network
You can easily invite other AWS users to join your blockchain network by clicking on the “Invite other Accounts” icon. You can find a page on the Amazon Managed Blockchain console. When you invite any member of your AWS AC and they get information about the network and are able to make an account.
In this way on AWS have a voting API system so that they can vote newly added member. The voting system will be configurable so that independent members can independently provide voting power. Moreover, you can do different things with the Amazon Managed Blockchain network.
- AWS will be a decentralized resource where many AWS account holders will be owned.
- There is no option to delete the whole network until the last member deletes the membership. Because you are not only the owner of the blockchain network. But there will be a conformable option to terminate an account.
- You will be able to manage your network with interact Hyper-ledger Fabric certificate authority (CA).
- It allows you to create a channel “subnet” that transaction executed on the channel.
Amazon Blockchain Security & availability
Hyper-ledger Fabric uses certificates, manages all the users, and gives different access to the network. This authority gives you to manage all the user data. A VPC private link at the endpoint gives you access to the network.
With the AWS blockchain network, you are able to create ten blockchain networks for each membership across Amazon EC2 availability zones for high availability. Initially, a new member can create two nodes. Amazon blockchain technology is a step forward in the crypto space.
The admin user you tack once making your network member is the initial user in your Hyper-ledger material membership. you’ll use the username and password to recruit this user together with your Hyper-ledger material certificate authority and make further users in your membership. The admin user can even produce channels on the network and install and instantiate chain-code applications.
Amazon Managed Blockchain Pricing & billing
There have to category service offer. One is Standard Edition and another is Starter Edition. For use AWS you will be paid an hourly charge. As a client using network membership, peer nodes, use, storage, and what you are using data on the network. So this two-category membership, you will be charged per hour. You can check the Amazon Managed Blockchain pricing page.
Amazon Blockchain Future Plan
Already amazon registers a domain as per CNBC report. Also, AMZN is ready to reverie to cryptocurrency in near future. The company registers any related domain for future deals. In November 2017 they register Bitcoin and Etherium domains. So it indicated a big deal on the blockchain platform. One of the example domains is ‘amazonbitcoin.com’. Amazon coin started in 2013 and in the future, it can be used.
Google gets in the blockchain, Microsoft is getting into the blockchain and new Amazon gets in the BlockChain Ethereum technology. Basically, Amazon going to provide two services under AWS and one is Amazon manage a blockchain and another is an Amazon quantum ledger database.
It is a potential Amazon Blockchain Technology service for the Amazon user and this bid gain company is going to a wide range of blockchain services.
