Huawei Cloud, the cloud services arm of Huawei Global, has announced the launch of its Blockchain Service (BCS), according to an official press release.
The BCS was launched for commercial use in China earlier this year, and it is now available to a global audience on Huawei Cloud’s international website.
The service allows global entrepreneurs and developers to create, deploy and manage blockchain applications on Huawei Cloud, at a blistering pace and cheaper cost. Per the announcement, the global launch of BCS will also lay the groundwork for a soon to be released distributed global blockchain platform.
BCS is a cloud service that leverages on the blockchain and on some of the advantages inherent in the Huawei Cloud container and security technologies. The company claims that the BCS can be applied in most industries, including the Internet of Things (IoT), data applications and finance. BCS will be able to cover a wide array of scenarios, including but not limited to identity verification, food source tracing, remote healthcare, data transactions, IoT device management, proof of information and the Internet of Vehicles (IoV).
