Always more companies are developing a private blockchain for their security reasons or aim at using the bitcoin blockchain for their business objectives.

In the latest blogs, in fact, we talked about companies such as DARPA or AirBnB who plan to use the blockchain for their private goals.

The “blockchain as a service” partnership

Well, today we want to talk about Amazon Web Services (AWS) who recently announced its collaboration with Digital Currency Group (DCG), one of the most important investors in the blockchain, to provide to DCG’s startups a secure place to work and a technical support for their projects related to bitcoin.
Amazon Web Services, in fact, provides cloud computing services for websites and applications, so the blockchain could be very useful to improve their database security and other objectives.

The DCG empire

The DCG startups portfolio includes almost 100 Bitcoin companies from all around the world, including Chain and RSK and recently it received a big investment from Mastercard, Western Union, New York Life, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and more.
In a recent post, Amazon Web Services developer Scott Mullins explained the partnership between AWS and DCG.
“Today in financial services, distributed ledger technology is at the forefront of any discussion related to innovation. AWS is working with financial institutions and blockchain providers to spur innovation and facilitate frictionless experimentation. DCG is a recognized leader in distributed ledger technology, and we are excited to work with them and their portfolio companies to provide laboratory environments for enterprise experimentation with blockchain technology on AWS”.

Red Hat to help blockchain related startups

Yesterday Red Hat announced its idea to start its OpenShift blockchain that aims at helping financial companies with their initiatives related to the disruptive distributed ledger.
Thanks to OpenShift, Red Hat users can create blockchain applications using tools provided by indipendent sellers and with the support of Red Hat’s Openshift Dedicated program.

How Openshift works 

OpenShift Dedicated wants to help the startups related to blockchaintech, fintech ISVs, and traditional financial companies to begin their blockchain-based projects.
“A lot of folks in the market are looking to deploy on the big cloud providers, Amazon, Google, Microsoft. There are many companies offering cloud support”, Tapia commented.
Tapia clarified that OpenShift Dedicated is available on Amazon and will soon be available on Google and Microsoft Azure as well.
During a recent interview, director of OpenShift, Julio Tapia, explained that the company wants to use its own experience in the open source sector related to blockchain technology.
These were his words:
“We want to position ourselves with not only customers and partners, but leverage solutions developed in the entire ecosystem, taking all the innovation going on in the industry, maturing it for an enterprise market and making sure all the solutions can be launched and supported.”
