Diverse business networks bring their own pre-existing investments in cloud, IT structures, operating preferences and data residency requirements. Decentralized ownership of the network across clouds, regions, and companies’ private nodes is a foundational enterprise blockchain requirement. The Kaleido platform offers hybrid deployment to uniquely fill this need, providing a truly integrated and seamless experience across Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and on premise data centers that enables borderless blockchain for an accelerated pace of adoption by global networks. Start on your cloud of choice and expand your network seamlessly and securely with a single experience across leading cloud providers and geographic regions, all on Kaleido.

Hybrid deployment with PrivateStack
Seamlessly connect nodes running self-managed on-premise, or in private cloud VPCs, with nodes running fully-managed across AWS and Azure in Kaleido. Our unique blockchain-aware PrivateStack network bridge and remote agent combine industry standard network technology, with DMZ-ready dynamically configured networking, and one-click setup.
The PrivateStack software package provides you with two key components:
PrivateStack Network Bridge
Combines forward & reverse proxies, secure network bridging via industry standard DMZ friendly networking, and dynamic configuration management. Designed to put you in full control of your network security, while retaining bi-directional connectivity to and from the whole business network.
Simplifies the creation of your private self-managed node into a single command. Provides a secure API to bootstrap your node into the business network, and share its public identity with other nodes in the same Kaleido environment. A small cut-down adapted from the version of the agent we run for nodes in the Kaleido fully-managed platform, it provides your organization with enough connectivity to ease on-boarding, without compromising the integrity of your private keys and data.
