BlockApps Partners with Red Hat To Make Ethereum Apps Easier
Blockchain-as-a-Service startup BlockApps has partnered with Red Hat to bring Ethereum app development “to scale for hybrid cloud environments.” The collaboration, the third in a year for the two companies, aims to make creating Ethereum apps “easier.”
In a press release issued Friday, BlockApps explained that its technology can work in tandem with Red Hat’s to “bring Blockchain applications to scale for hybrid cloud environments.”
“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,” co-founder and CEO Victor Wong said.
The move is not the first time the companies have teamed up. BlockApps’ Strato software became the first Blockchain app to list on Red Hat’s OpenShift Container Platform last year, with BlockApps also joining its Blockchain Initiative in April.
“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,” Wong added.
Red Hat global director of financial services Richard Feldmann added that the project’s aim was to create “an ideal platform for Blockchain and fintech apps.”
BlockApps’ BaaS software has previously been run on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform.
