Blockchain firm Kaleido announces Microsoft Azure integration

Fri, 15 Mar 2019, 09:00 am UTC

Kaleido, a new venture launched by ConsenSys last year, has announced that its Blockchain Business Cloud is now available on Microsoft Azure's Marketplace.

The announcement follows Kaleido’s collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) in November 2018. Kaleido said that the new support for Azure, together with AWS, enables it to offer an industry first – a seamless blockchain solution spanning multiple cloud providers and geographic regions.

AWS and Azure reportedly comprise over 80 percent of the public cloud sector. Kaliedo said that the enterprises served by these cloud infrastructures would now be able to collaborate to build diverse business networks on a single, cross cloud solution operating on its platform.

To better explain the benefits, Kaleido cited the example of its customer, Komgo, which is a blockchain-based commodity trade and finance group comprised of global institutions like Citi, ING, Koch Supply & Trading, MUFG Bank, Societe Generale, Credit Agricole Group, BNP Paribas, Shell and others. If one member of the Group wants to run on Azure, and another wants to run on AWS, they can now seamlessly work together in a single blockchain network on Kaleido, it added.

Souleïma Baddi, CEO of komgo, said that these sorts of capabilities are critical to remove friction and overcome barriers to adoption so organizations can accelerate their path to building live production solutions for diverse business cases.

"We've built our platform across the leading public clouds including Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services to give our clients the ability to create global, cross-cloud networks. Our customers' digital ecosystems can now grow and scale wherever and however the participants require,” said Steve Cerveny, Kaleido Founder and CEO.

Launched last May, Kaleido's Blockchain Business Cloud platform enables enterprises to accelerate from the proof-of-concept stage to production blockchain networks for diverse ecosystems.

In its official release, Kaleido said it has helped enterprises deploy over a thousand consortia blockchain networks, producing over 150 million blocks, with some of the world's most recognizable brands, like T-Mobile, Kroger, Heineken, Sony, Fox, UnionBank, and many others, participating in live networks.
