What it is

Hybrid, Cross-Cloud Blockchain Deployment

Seamlessly connect nodes running self-managed on-premise, or in private cloud VPCs, with nodes running fully-managed across AWS and Azure in Kaleido. Our unique blockchain-aware PrivateStack network bridge and remote agent combine industry standard network technology, with DMZ-ready dynamically configured networking, and one-click setup.

Fully Managed, Hybrid Deployment

Have a fully managed blockchain node in seconds in AWS or Azure, multi-region, multi-cloud with fully-managed infrastructure, enterprise-grade high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR), key mgmt. including AWS & Azure cloud HSMs & HashiCorp Vault, REST APIs & Event Streams to integrate existing apps & infra, off-chain private file & data transfer, w/ strong identity & encryption.

Built for Enterprise IT Networks

Our solution combines industry standard network bridging technology, with a deployment model designed for multi-tier secure IT networks. We let you place the blockchain node in an inner network, and provide a proxy to run in your DMZ, combining strong security controls with bi-direction connectivity to the whole network.

Support for all Protocols

We keep the OSS core blockchain protocol itself untouched and able to support all protocols, regardless of their choice of networking and consensus algorithm. Today we support: Corda, Hyperledger Besu + Orion private transaction manager, Quorum + Tessera private transaction manager, and Go Ethereum.

What Is Hyperledger Fabric?

Since launching in 2015, Hyperledger Fabric has been a top choice for enterprises looking to build apps on permissioned blockchain networks. The modular architecture is capable of powering large-scale applications that require enterprise-grade data security.

The ability to protect certain details of peer transactions has made Hyperledger Fabric a go-to protocol for industries like financial services, supply chains, and the insurance industry. It works for complex use cases that involve personally identifiable information and proprietary business data.

Hyperledger Fabric is one of the many protocol choices available on Kaleido. With a full suite of plug and play services, flexible cloud deployment options, and powerful APIs, Kaleido is the easiest way to run a Fabric network anywhere.

Benefits of Hyperledger Fabric

Hyperledger Fabric is an open source project designed to handle enterprise-grade use cases. Key differentiators are its quick transaction throughput and its modularity, allowing for more innovation and optimization regardless of industry use cases. Other benefits include scalability and security, key pillars of any enterprise application.

Modular & Pluggable

Hyperledger Fabric is a modular blockchain framework that allows you to plug in different components, such as consensus algorithms and membership services, and tailor networks to your needs

Open source

Part of the Hyperledger project of the Linux Foundation, Hyperledger Fabric is an open source protocol that allows the enterprise to build custom applications and limit vendor risks

Security

With a high level of security for enterprise users, Fabric uses a permissioned network to prevent unauthorized access

Benefits of Quorum

Quorum is a blockchain protocol specially designed for use in a private blockchain network, where there is only a single member owning all the nodes or a consortium blockchain network where multiple members each own a portion of the network.

Scalability

Quorum is designed to be highly scalable, with low transaction latencies and the ability to support a higher number of transactions per second than other blockchain protocols. This makes it well-suited for use in high-volume applications.

Security

Quorum includes a number of security features that are designed to protect sensitive or proprietary data, like private transactions that allow network participants to transact without revealing the details of their transactions to the rest of the network.

Flexibility

Quorum is based on the Ethereum protocol and can support a wide range of decentralized applications and smart contracts. It is also highly modular and customizable so that it can be tailored to the needs of specific use cases.

Gas-free transactions

There is no cost required to submit transactions to a Quorum network, unlike Ethereum, which requires the payment of high and unpredictable gas fees to submit transactions.

How it works

How it Works

Now in Kaleido, we provide decentralized solutions for every level of participation seen in enterprise blockchain networks:

  • High investment members who are the trust anchors of the network: Can run nodes in their own private data center, or private cloud VPC, have full control over every aspect of the software and infrastructure stack, can demonstrate infrastructure decentralization of the network validators, and meet the strict IT security requirements with tech designed for enterprise.
  • The network operator entity or board of trustees: Make the blockchain plumbing a simple part of the application stack, allowing new members to onboard while retaining a fully interconnected business network - including with privately hosted nodes, retaining visibility of the health of the infrastructure, and retaining control of permissioning and governance. 
  • Full participation network members: Have your own fully managed blockchain node in seconds in AWS or Azure, run multi-region, multi-cloud with fully-managed infrastructure, enterprise grade high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR), key management — including AWS & Azure cloud HSMs and HashiCorp Vault, REST APIs and Event Streams to integrate to your existing apps & infra, off-chain private file and data transfer, with strong identity and encryption.
  • The “long tail” of network participants: Connect to a multi-tenant node without needing any IT investment, secure signing keys and data dedicated to you, gain visibility into how blockchain makes the business network decentralized.
  • End users: Secure connectivity into the network (OAuth / Open ID connect), with custodial or non-custodial key management.

The PrivateStack software package itself provides you with two key components:

  1. PrivateStack Network Bridge: Combines forward & reverse proxies, secure network bridging via industry standard DMZ friendly networking, and dynamic configuration management. Designed to put you in full control of your network security, while retaining bi-directional connectivity to and from the whole business network.
  2. PrivateStack Agent: Simplifies the creation of your private self-managed node into a single command. Provides a secure API to bootstrap your node into the business network, and share its public identity with other nodes in the same Kaleido environment. A cut-down version of the agent we run for nodes in the Kaleido fully-managed platform, it provides your organization enough with enough connectivity to ease on-boarding, without compromising the integrity of your private keys and data.

We’ve been able to keep the OSS core blockchain protocol itself untouched and able to support all protocols, regardless of their choice of networking and consensus algorithm.

Enterprise Use Cases
Run Better on Kaleido

Hyperledger Fabric is a private blockchain that allows developers to create subnets, or channels, meaning that certain proprietary or personal information can remain confidential. This makes Fabric a protocol of choice for industries like financial services, insurance, and supply chain management.

Supply Chains

Hyperledger Fabric networks can increase transparency and traceability of transactions within the network. This transparency can be used to monitor real-time location data, limit fraud and counterfeit goods, and track ESG efforts.

Digital Assets

Complex multi-party business networks built on Fabric can easily tokenize assets, transact instantly, share data, and eliminate cumbersome paperwork as financial business flows are automated.

Insurance

Moving insurance transactions to blockchain can eliminate fraud, automate claim processing, and digitize legacy systems. Hyperledger Fabric also allows stakeholders to automate Know Your Customer (KYC) processes via smart contracts.
