By now, we have seen how Blockchain technology has become the talk of the town. Be it any industry like Energy, Agriculture, Finance etc, Blockchain is making waves across all sectors. While IT industries can successfully implement Blockchain projects since it is their core; for other sectors whose core competency lies in fields like mentioned above, it is a herculean task to develop full-fledged Blockchain solutions in their space.

To overcome this challenge, Blockchain as a Service model has made its grand entry to simplify the development process for such field industries. By using Blockchain as a Service, these industries can concentrate on their core areas and rely upon this service for the implementation of Blockchain in their projects.

What is Blockchain as a Service (BaaS)?

In the Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) model, businesses and organizations can access the Blockchain service that is created and developed on a cloud. A blockchain as a service application is developed, hosted and deployed on the cloud. This application is like any other natively hosted blockchain application that has smart contracts and other relevant Blockchain functions. The advantage of a blockchain as a service (BaaS) model application is that the business need not worry about the management and installation of any kind of infrastructure like the server and instead depend on the cloud-based service provider to do all these IT-related jobs.

Based on the lines of Software as a Service (SaaS), Blockchain as a Service will encourage more and more industries to adopt Blockchain technology in their businesses, which, even though knew about Blockchain’s significance, but were skeptical about its adoption due to huge dependency on IT. The technical intricacies of developing and maintaining Blockchain and its related infrastructure had restricted many industries to adopt mainstream Blockchain technology in their areas, but thanks to the Blockchain as a service (BaaS) model, organizations have been willing to accept & implement Blockchain in their respective spaces.

How Does Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) Work?

Similar to how a website is hosted on any web hosting provider like Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services (AWS) rather than hosting it on your server and managing all the maintenance work yourself, a Blockchain as a service (BaaS) provider provides all the necessary setup and infrastructure to businesses to develop their Blockchain applications. The BaaS provider is responsible for hosting and deploying the application, managing the back-end nitty gritties, resource allocation, protection from cyber attacks etc. It also takes care of always keeping the infrastructure up and running.

The business that is using Blockchain as a Service is obliged to pay fees to the service provider for the platform they provide for implementing the Blockchain solution. The BaaS provider can configure the blockchain network on blockchain platforms like Ethereum, Hyperledger Fabric, Bitcoin etc. Now that we know how Blockchain as a service works, there are some parameters which need to be taken into account while choosing the correct service provider.

Criteria to choose the right Blockchain as a Service platform

There are many Blockchain as a service providers in the market. Listed below are a few pointers that can help identify the best BaaS provider or you can say the criteria that a good Blockchain as a service provider should meet.

Integration of Smart Contracts

First and foremost, the ability to integrate smart contracts in your applications is a must. Smart contracts not only apply business logic to the application but can also specify rules in case of certain triggers, can automate complex business processes, so on and so forth. For a Blockchain as a service provider, it is imperative to provide the facility of integrating smart contracts within the Blockchain application.

Identity Management implementation

With respect to guaranteeing high level security inside the network, a blockchain as a service provider is required to provide a framework that manages permissions and access on the blockchain network. Not every user should be able to enter the network without prior permission. A well-built access management system that authenticates and validates every user before granting access to the network is mandatory for any BaaS provider to implement.

Diverse Frameworks

A good Blockchain as a service provider is the one that offers multiple Blockchain platforms and frameworks in their services. To make the Blockchain application more flexible and versatile, it is essential that the BaaS provider supports many frameworks.

Backend Services

Providing full support of backend services is an important service for any Blockchain as a service provider. Every enterprise has its unique needs for backend services. Providing high-end data security, cost-effectiveness, managing system scalability in times of heavy traffic, always maintaining system availability, balancing energy consumption etc are some of the many services that a good BaaS provider needs to offer.

High-speed Provisioning

Due to a lot of hosting requests, a Blockchain as a service provider has to face a lot of pressure to host and deploy Blockchain applications. These requests can come from various browsers, different hardware, diverse databases and varied servers, the requirements of each being unique and complex. A high-speed provisioned BaaS provider can serve each one of these requests with equal ease and performance. The best is the one which provides quick deployment, staging, testing and production with minimal hassles and zero errors. Also important is that the BaaS provider provides feasible solutions for backup and recovery in case of system failures.
