Through an official statement, Amazon has confirmed that the AWS CloudFormation system will support Amazon Managed Blockchain for the creation and configuration of networks and peer nodes.
Managed Blockchain is a management service that facilitates the creation and management of scalable blockchain networks between different AWS accounts, while CloudFormation allows modelling and providing cloud resources in a secure, predictable and consistent way, allowing to standardise and simplify the infrastructure for the work environment.
In addition, it is worth recalling that customers using Amazon AWS can use CloudFormation completely free of charge and thus allow the development and integration of various projects without additional costs.
In fact, using this framework provided by Amazon, it is also possible to allow users to perform certain operations such as designing and joining an existing network and defining the members and details of the network, useful for example when voting for the relevant policies.
A few months after the actual launch of this service by Amazon, a new feature and a new service have been introduced to make blockchain management even easier, demonstrating how Amazon is increasingly active in the sector, despite the fact that its policies conflict with the use of cryptocurrencies.
