US-based tech giant Amazon’s subsidiary Amazon Web Service (AWS) has recently broke the news about Ethereum’s availability on the Amazon Managed Blockchain.
AWS customers are able to set up Ethereum nodes in a matter of minutes with ease, as well as connecting to the public Ethereum mainnet and test networks like Rinkeby and Ropsten.
Amazon Managed Blockchain provides secure networking, encryption at rest and transport, secure network access due to the open-source Ethereum APIs (which serves as a bridge of communication between the blockchain and the application), fast and reliable Ethereum blockchain syncs, and durable flexible storage for ledger data.
Moreover, it has a monitoring system so that the health of the nodes can be maintained and ensured as it replaces any nodes that are detected to be unhealthy. Customers can rest easy since the Ethereum software upgrades are automated, leading to the improvement of their Ethereum infrastructure’s availability.
Amazon Managed Blockchain also benefits the customers who build analytical products like smart contract monitoring tools due to its scalability, reliability and well-managed Ethereum service.
So far, Ethereum on Amazon Managed Blockchain can be used in the following AWS areas: Eastern US (North Virginia), Asia Pacific (Singapore, Tokyo and Seoul) and Europe (Ireland and London).
