VeChain’s Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) solution was initially launched in 2016. The solution combines NFC+RFID chips, blockchain encryption, identity verification technology, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, and traditional enterprise IT services to provide a comprehensive IT solution utilizing blockchain technology. Customers cover a range of industries, from producers of consumer goods to manufacturers in the automobile, transportation, food, and agriculture sectors. Notable users of the pre-existing services including BMW, BYD Auto, BrightFood, DB Schenker, and D.I.G.

With this one-click solution, VeChain’s BaaS solution will use AWS CloudFormation to enable their customers to deploy in one click, eliminating the cumbersome manual deployment associated with the emerging industry. In this solution, VeChain is also adopting:

  • Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) to deploy the VeChainThor mainnet to allow data uploading and smart contract deployment.
  • Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for data persistence and cost reduction. Deployment of Amazon Redshift will improve data analysis efficiency for enterprise customers, connecting the enterprise ERP system with the blockchain system to conveniently call smart contracts, and upload data through standardized APIs.
  • Amazon EC2, Elastic Load Balancing, and Amazon CloudFront on the application front to collect raw data from systems such as ERPs. At the back end of the applications, Amazon RDS will store and upload data to the blockchain through the interface.

As an AWS technology partner, VeChain joins the AWS Partner Network (APN) and will receive business operations, technology development, and marketing support.

“We welcome VeChain to join the AWS Partner Network and deploy the leading-edge BaaS solution on AWS, AWS provides rich security capabilities and services, extensive compliance certification, and a global infrastructure. The AWS Blockchain Templates were introduced in 2018, allowing customers to quickly and easily create and deploy secure blockchain networks using popular Ethereum and Superbook open source frameworks while minimizing human error. We hope VeChain, and its customers, will accelerate the pace of innovation and continue to sharpen their competitive advantage with these features.”
