BlockApps, a leading provider of Ethereum blockchain enterprise software, successfully launches STRATO on OpenShift, Red Hat’s award-winning container application platform.

At its core, blockchain is a next-generation database technology that has the potential to revolutionize how business, social and political software systems are built. By enabling stakeholders to maintain a local copy of the database, blockchain helps to prevent improper tampering with data and processes. Stakeholders with differing, even conflicting motivations, can use the same business processes embedded in smart contracts on the blockchain and be confident that processing is proceeding as it should.

The STRATO offering is a single-node blockchain instance, which acts as a developer sandbox for testing Ethereum blockchain applications, as well as a STRATO RESTful API for connecting applications to private, semi-private (consortium) and public Ethereum blockchains. Combined with Bloc, the web application software development kit which supports all the core features of the Ethereum Solidity smart contract language, developers can have blockchain applications up and running in minutes. STRATO also offers adjustable consensus formation algorithms and transaction verification rules such as instant, round-robin signature pool, proof of work, and proof of stake.

OpenShift by Red Hat is a container-based application platform that enables developers to more quickly develop, host, and scale applications in a cloud environment. OpenShift’s elastic, multi-language Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) architecture automates the provisioning, management and scaling of applications, so developers can focus on writing the application code for their business, startup or next big idea. OpenShift’s support for multiple languages and frameworks, databases and development tools, offer a lower barrier to entry, so developers can start their project with ease and start coding faster, using the languages and tools they already know and prefer.

Jim Hormuzdiar, CTO of BlockApps relayed:

“OpenShift is a dynamic environment that enterprise clientele operate within. The collaboration was a logical direction and BlockApps is incredibly excited to work with Red Hat as the first blockchain provider on the OpenShift platform.”

Ashesh Badani, vice president and general manager of OpenShift at Red Hat noted:

“Red Hat is excited to team up with BlockApps to give OpenShift users who are innovating with various blockchain technologies a blockchain-as-a-service offering with OpenShift and STRATO. Through BlockApps STRATO on OpenShift, developers will have access to tools and applications so they can more quickly develop and take advantage of the power of blockchain apps.”

Joseph Lubin, Founder of ConsenSys, BlockApps’ seed investor / parent company / incubator / solutions partner said:

“We are very excited to be able to place our state-of-the-art blockchain implementation and associated developer tools on the OpenShift platform. Red Hat corporate customers can now experiment with and scalably deploy their own private enterprise, or private consortium blockchains on Red Hat’s award-winning platform.”
