Blockchain and cloud computing is a growing trend that many companies are exploring. The trend was adopted by many including Amazon Web Services (AWS) which is an American cloud computing giant that launched blockchain templates in April this year.
AWS works with an aim to ensure that developing blockchain projects becomes an easier task with the use of pre-set frameworks on AWS, supporting both Ethereum’s and the Linuz Foundation’s Hyperledger Fabric.
SB Cloud is expected to provide IOST’s blockchain technology and products to the users it serves. Users can get access to a cost-effective and flexible platform by having blockchain technology on a cloud computing system. It will leverage upon the benefit of decentralization as IT equipment failure will not affect the entire network.
The partnership indeed will be a significant combination of blockchain technology with cloud computing technology to the level to compete with the world famous AWS. The concept of ‘Blockchain as a service’ will be promoted via the partnership and IOST will expand to Japan too.
