What Is Blockchain Service?

Blockchain Service (BCS) is a blockchain platform for enterprises and developers. BCS helps you quickly deploy, manage, and maintain blockchain networks, lowering the threshold for using blockchains. In this way, you can focus on the development and innovation of your own business to quickly implement business using blockchains.

  • Infrastructure

    The infrastructure layer offers underlying resources required for creating a blockchain network, including resources on nodes used to compute and store data in the network.

  • BCS

    BCS provides enhanced Hyperledger Fabric blockchain instances, which consist of user management, node management, and O&M monitoring modules. It helps you quickly create, manage, and efficiently maintain an enterprise-grade blockchain system for upper-layer applications.

    • Enhanced Hyperledger Fabric instances are seamlessly integrated with Hyperledger Fabric, and are enhanced with the full-stack, trustworthy capabilities, including elastic computing, container, security, and AI services. They can meet enterprise- and finance-grade reliability, performance, and privacy requirements.
  • Scenarios

    BCS can be used in multiple scenarios of various industries. Industry-specific applications connect to the blockchain platform to ensure data reliability and security.

  • Security management

    Privacy isolation, consensus algorithms, and OSCCA-published cryptographic algorithms based on light nodes provide secure computing, trustworthy data sharing, and distributed identity capabilities.
