Amazon and Kaleido to Provide Enterprise Blockchain Platform

Kaleido, a subsidiary of ConsenSys and tech firm that provides a full-stack platform, has announced that it is launching a marketplace of plug-and-play services to simplify blockchain development for businesses. Kaleido is cooperating with Amazon Web Services in order to bring an enterprise blockchain platform projects from proof-of-concepts to live production business networks. The company’s and its partner’s new marketplace currently offers trusted tools and services.

Kaleido has been instrumental for businesses in the creation of over 1,000 blockchain networks utilizing its Blockchain Business Cloud. This new endeavour will allow Kaleido to provide the first full-stack blockchain solution.

According to Kaleido Founder and COO, Sophia Lopez:

“We’ve seen successful patterns of deployment as enterprise networks go into production and we’ve baked these best practices into the Kaleido Marketplace services, to help radically simplify the adoption of blockchain and eliminate some of the specialized blockchain expertise needed.”

Kaleido claims that those companies who have already utilized the the Kaleido Marketplace have bypassed 80% of the custom coded needed to develop their blockchain project. However, according to the company, the blockchain is only a small part to the larger project as a whole.

Steve Cerveny, Kaleido co-founder and CEO commented:

“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,” said Kaleido Founder and CEO, Steve Cerveny. “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.”

Kaleido is preparing to release its Partnership Program alongside the marketplace. The aim of the program is to offer third-party providers an entry point into the blockchain ecosystem through the Kaleido Marketplace.
