Ethereum now available on Amazon Managed Blockchain

Amazon Web Services users reportedly have the ability to “provision Ethereum nodes” and connect to the blockchain’s mainnet and other testnets.

Technology giant Amazon just announced the general availability of Ethereum on its managed blockchain.

According to Amazon Web Services, or AWS, users now have the ability to “provision Ethereum nodes” and connect to the blockchain’s mainnet in addition to the Ropsten and Rinkeby testnets through the Amazon Managed Blockchain. The program claims to offer secure access to the network with “standard open-source Ethereum APIs” and sync to the Ethereum blockchain.

“Amazon Managed Blockchain monitors node health, replaces unhealthy nodes, and automates Ethereum software upgrades, improving the availability of customers’ Ethereum infrastructure,” said the firm. “In addition to DeFi applications, customers building analytical products such as smart contract monitoring tools and fraud detection software can also benefit from this scalable, highly available, and fully managed Ethereum service.”

AWS first launched its Amazon Managed Blockchain in April 2019, saying at the time customers would be able to set up blockchain networks within their organizations and use the Ethereum and Hyperledger open-source frameworks. The service claimed it could eliminate the need “to provision hardware, install software, create and manage certificates for access control, and configure network settings.”

The move comes exactly one month following Jeff Bezos announcing he would be stepping down as Amazon CEO in the third quarter of 2021. He will be replaced by Andy Jassy, who is currently the CEO of Amazon Web Services and oversaw the company’s crypto product offerings.
