Alibaba Cloud launches global blockchain-as-a-service

Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, expanded its Blockchain as a Service (BlaaS) offering to major global markets including South East Asia, the US and Europe. BlaaS provides an enterprise-level platform service based on leading blockchain technologies and helps customers build a secure and stable environment for blockchain implementations.

Applications are supported by two platforms: Hyperledger Fabric and Ant Blockchain.

Hyperledger is a multi-project, multi-stakeholder effort that includes 10 business blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DLT). Hyperledger Fabric is a blockchain framework implementation and one of the projects hosted by The Linux Foundation.

Ant Blockchain, developed by Alibaba Group’s financial affiliate Ant Financial Services Group, is a proprietary and multi-patented high-performing blockchain platform. The security of BlaaS is guarded by trusted computing and a secure consortium blockchain network. With this strong architecture, customers can create their own BlaaS applications on Alibaba Cloud’s effective and reliable platform.

Blaas supports a wide range of applications including automatic deployment, consortium blockchain management, smart contracts, user and certificate management and SDK (Software Development Kit) applications, as well as a range of monitoring, operating and maintenance functions.

Alibaba Cloud recently launched two new availability zones in the UK, which brings its total operational zones to 52 in 19 regions.
