Containerization and Migration of Applications to Blockchain using AWS

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Overview

AWS is one the most powerful services that play an important role for a developer to develop or migrate any centralized, less secure applications and are affected by other problems to blockchain technology which is immutable, transparent, and tracking the assets in a business network or any other transactional ways. An asset can be anything like a house, car, land, or anything valuable for an individual.

What is AWS?

AWS is one of the most famous cloud platforms that is used widely around the globe. It offers more than 200 services that are fully featured that are available from data centers globally. AWS ensures security, time-to-time services, fast processing, and a pay-as-you-use concept which can also be called as cost effectiveness.

What is Blockchain?

Blockchain sometimes can also be called distributed ledger technology, which makes any digital recorded in a decentralized network unalterable and transparent. As in the blockchain name, Block is an encrypted set of digital data assets chained together. We can see Blockchain technology mainly in cryptocurrency transactions.

In this blog, we will see what AWS services we can use to deploy an application based on Blockchain technology.

System Architecture

In the above diagram, a normal application in GitHub or Docker Container is deployed in an Amazon EC2 instance where we can choose the suitable instance type for the performance. Then we can start implementing blockchain technology based on the application requirement and convert the application based on Blockchain. After implementation, we can store the application in various AWS storage services. So that it will be more secure, and the stored data will not be erased or we can say data will be non-volatile.

Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Create an AWS account, providing the appropriate details.

Step 2: In the search box, search for Amazon EC2 and click on it.

Step 3: Click on Launch Instance.

Step 9: Take the public IP address of the instance created and configure it to work inside the server.

After configuring the Amazon EC2 instance, we can configure the prerequisites to pull the application from the Git repository or Docker, convert the application to Blockchain based, and then push the application to Docker, which we downloaded in the prerequisites phase.

A Docker container is a lightweight, standalone executable package of software that includes everything needed to run an application. The application will be in the container images when it is not in use, and when it is in run time, it will be called containers. The docker pull command will be used to pull the images and run the container, and also, we can make changes if we want.

Docker gives cryptographic certificates, and the cryptographic authorities generate these certificates. If that matches our certificate, the authority gives that, which will validate it. This will be more secure, and it will also be encrypted.

After the implementation, we can upload the application in various storage services like Amazon RDS, Amazon Dynamo DB, and Amazon S3. Also, we can push the application to the same Git repository and Docker container and be fetched back whenever required.

Conclusion

Enterprises aiming to increase the security and productivity of their applications can reap many advantages from containerization and the move of their programs to Blockchain utilizing Amazon. Business organizations may quickly install and manage containers on blockchain-based infrastructure using AWS products like Amazon ECS, EKS, and Amazon Managed Blockchain.

Many advantages of containerization include quicker deployment, simpler scalability, and improved portability. Additionally, switching to blockchain technology can boost automation and efficiency while offering a higher level of security and transparency.

Therefore, careful planning and execution are needed for containerization and migration to blockchain processes. Before starting this path, businesses must carefully assess their application needs, infrastructure requirements, and security issues.

In general, enterprises wishing to upgrade their application infrastructure may find that containerization plus a move to Blockchain utilizing Amazon might offer a potent mix of advantages. With proper design and implementation, businesses may benefit from increased security, effectiveness, and scalability in their application environments.
