Orbs, an open-source blockchain infrastructure project, is now available on Amazon Web Services. Having support for the world’s leading cloud provider will let developers experiment with Orbs and its technology. To date, AWS Marketplace only lists 58 blockchain providers.
One cannot underestimate the potential of blockchain technology. Amazon, through its Amazon Web Services, acknowledged this fact early on. The world’s leading cloud provider has openly supported dozens of blockchain providers through its AWS marketplace. The latest addition is Orbs, a permissionless and open-source blockchain infrastructure project.
When developers search for a blockchain solution, they will see Orbs’ AWS machine image (AMI) as one of the options. It represents a virtual machine image with the necessary tools to let anyone develop on the Orbs blockchain with one click. Amazon’s support for seamless deployment of AMIs ensures developers can get acquainted with their work environment within seconds.
Orbs positions itself as a blockchain environment that will focus primarily on decentralized finance. A collection of protocols is under development to bring centralized finance players and real-world business to the DeFi industry. The growth of decentralized finance continues to accelerate globally. By removing the need for intermediaries and replacing them with interoperable smart contracts, everyone can save a lot of time.
As developers control DeFi’s business development, they are the primary catalyst for current and future collaborative efforts. As a developer-centric blockchain ecosystem, Orbs wants to empower more developers who are keen on exploring decentralized finance. Orbs’ Github page has over 180 open-source repositories, further incentivizing developers to collaborate and experiment with this technology.
To date, the AWS Marketplace provides access to 58 blockchain providers. As Orbs is one of those providers, it confirms the team’s vision of building new decentralized finance products and services. Creating an optimal developer environment and providing the necessary tools plays an essential role in making that long-term vision come true.
Orbs is a public blockchain infrastructure designed for mass usage applicationsoffering developers a proper mix of performance, cost, security and ease of use. The Orbs protocol is decentralized and executed by a public network of permissionless validators using proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus.
