Chainstack has announced new service enhancements and support for its flagship managed blockchain services platform, and Chainstack Marketplace –a complete list of applications, complementary services and development tools designed to help enterprises and developers launch and scale decentralized solutions with reduced time, effort and cost.
By being both protocol and cloud agnostic, the Chainstack platform makes any blockchain implementation easy, simple, robust and reliable for enterprises and developers, enabling them to take full advantage of what blockchain technology has to offer in areas of decentralization, security, transparency and immutability. With the managed blockchain services infrastructure powered by Chainstack, blockchain nodes, networks and applications can be deployed across multiple projects with hybrid configurations in minutes rather than weeks, all from a single platform.
The enhanced version of Chainstack enables developers and enterprises to programmatically create, scale and manage projects, networks, nodes, services, identities and applications, as well as automate testing and delivery of solutions, through its robust platform API. Partners can also interact with Chainstack’s orchestration API to seamlessly manage blockchain deployments from their own platforms, allowing them to programmatically operate and scale their networks.
New ways of interacting with blockchain nodes and networks on the Chainstack platform have been introduced. These include allowing customers and developers to start and stop their nodes and networks at any time, offering advanced node lifecycle option and flexibility to those who prefer to take a break from the project without upsetting the state and paying for compute resources unnecessarily.
Chainstack supports the latest development of a wide range of enterprise blockchain protocols, including major consortium and distributed ledger technology (DLT) protocols such as Bitcoin, Corda, Ethereum, Hyperledger Fabric, MultiChain and Quorum.
Adding one more cloud provider to its existing stable of multi-cloud partners including Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform, Chainstack now also supports Microsoft Azure to enable customers deploy consortium networks and public blockchain nodes in UK South region.
Chainstack is committed to offering the best user experience and maximizing cost transparency for customers. Cost estimates for resource utilization can now be calculated and displayed, alongside all deployments, for complete visibility into the network components before customers make their decisions.
