Aurora Labs Launches Turnkey Blockchain Solution for Businesses Transitioning to Web3 Aurora Cloud is the all-in-one cloud infrastructure solution bridging Web2 and Web3.
03/02/2023 Denver– Web3 infrastructure startup Aurora Labs announced the launch of Aurora Cloud, a platform and suite of products that allows today’s Web2 businesses to capture the value of Web3.
Aurora Cloud — Platforms like Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure unleashed the potential of Web2 by democratizing the building blocks of the internet. In a similar way, Aurora Cloud — including Borealis Business, Aurora Pass and Aurora Silos — eliminates the technical and user experience barriers that keep Web2 businesses from capturing the full value of Web3.
The foundation of Aurora Cloud is Aurora, the innovative blockchain that provides full Ethereum compatibility, while leveraging the speed, low-cost and infinite-scalability of the third-generation layer-1 protocol, NEAR.
Borealis Business — The first pillar of Aurora Cloud is a transaction processing and accounting engine known as Borealis Business that allows Web2 companies to add blockchain capability to their applications in a way that completely removes costs and other technical complexities from the end-user experience. The product also includes all the data tools necessary to support business operational monitoring, understanding and optimization.
Aurora Pass — Many of today’s Web2 companies are mobile-first or mobile-only. For these customers, the second pillar of Aurora Cloud is the Aurora Pass digital wallet, facilitating the adoption of blockchain technology in mobile applications with minimal development work, and allowing users to authorize transactions using the same biometric facilities like Touch ID and Face ID they’ve come to know and love.
Aurora Silos — While the permissionless nature of public blockchains ushers in a new age of ubiquitous accessibility, many of tomorrow’s most valuable blockchain use cases will require app-specific and business-specific blockchains. To address this need, the final pillar of Aurora Cloud is Aurora Silos, which are customer-specific, dedicated blockchains, running on the Borealis Business infrastructure, and providing an unparalled feature set.
Aurora Silos go beyond Ethereum compatibility, allowing customers to design and implement their own custom tokens, tokenomics and even transaction fee mechanics, to support any imaginable blockchain business model. As a dedicated blockchain, Aurora Silo customers can implement multiple-levels of access control, perfect for KYC/AML-restricted “permissioned” DeFi environments, members-only access to games, or any context requiring the management of network access and activity — and without closing the door to interoperabity and cross-network composability with public protocols like Ethereum, Aurora or NEAR.
White-glove service and support — For customers that need integration assistance, or even conceptual ideation around how to best adopt blockchain technologies in their businesses, Aurora Labs’ crypto-native business development and engineering teams are ready to serve as a partner every step of the way.
"It's thrilling to be part of a technical revolution, and to be building the infrastructure that businesses need to onboard millions to Web3."
Alex Shevchenko, CEO and co-founder of Aurora Labs.
The platform is currently in beta, and available for early business integrations.
