Amazon lately announced a new Blockchain service at its AWS Re-Invent 2018 Event. Offering another pathway of development in this technology, the tech giant introduced its platform as a managed service for creating and managing scalable blockchain networks. As per reports, this new platform will simplify the operations in running blockchain applications. With such solutions, blockchain based app development will intensify across the industry. Amazon is known to develop highly robust technologies with competitive price strategy. In the same way, AWS revolutionized Cloud Computing and Storage Management, this new Blockchain service will come up as a massive boost in the Blockchain based app development industry.
Amazon named its new service as Quantum Ledger Database (QLDB). With the launch just before a couple of days, it became a buzzword across the technology community as Managed Blockchain. The service provides Managed Ledger Databases, which will store cryptographically verifiable transaction logs. These logs are immutable, rendering the basic features of Blockchain. QLDB is an enterprise database solution for blockchain transactions. These databases support languages aligning with SQL. The Ledger Database will store the blockchain transaction logs by replicating them, which can be queried later on. Per Amazon, the Quantum Ledgers is easy to use as it simplifies complex operations to few clicks. It is configured using a user-friendly wizard.

A year before, Amazon denied to get involved into Cryptocurrency through AWS. However, in a years time, the technology behind cryptocurrency changed to a fundamental undertone in the enterprise web application domain. After IBM and Microsoft, Amazon’s entry into the industry was imminent. With this, BaaS, Blockchain as a Service is gradually becoming the next tide in enterprise technology.
Blockchain as a Service, BaaS applications are basically transforming cloud-based servers to distributed ledgers. Therefore, blockchain is now gradually migrating into the cloud sphere. This trend will have a positive impact on Blockchain based application development as the platforms to develop such applications are now scalable and available on demand.
