BlockApps, a Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform and provider of Ethereum blockchain enterprise software, has just announced they are partnering with Red Hat in order to provide businesses with a production environment that allows for the building of blockchain applications that can be deployed across both public and private clouds.
One of the biggest obstacles to businesses adopting blockchain technology is the complexity of developing solutions that can easily shift from proof-of-concepts (POCs) to enterprise-level production environments. BlockApps BaaS solution backed by the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform not only makes it easier to develop blockchain applications, but also gives developers the combined capabilities of the blockchain and hybrid cloud environment.
"What we're seeing is a significant shift in blockchain adoption, moving from experimentation to wholesale adoption and scaled deployment within enterprises across various verticals," said Victor Wong, cofounder and CEO at BlockApps. "Red Hat began collaboration with BlockApps early, and we couldn't ask for a better technology partner for bringing standard based blockchain technologies into full production environments."
In 2016, BlockApps announced that STRATO was the first blockchain application to successfully launch on the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. In addition, BlockApps joined Red Hat’s OpenShift Blockchain Initiative, a platform designed to help customers from the financial services industry build blockchain solutions.
"Red Hat believes in the potential for blockchain in the enterprise, and we believe that a flexible open source and container-based platform offers an ideal platform for blockchain and fintech apps," said Rich Feldmann, global director, Financial Services, Red Hat. "We are excited to continue our collaboration with BlockApps to help enterprise organizations take advantage of the power of blockchain apps, at scale, in hybrid environments."
