What is Aurora Cloud and how does it work? What are the key features and benefits of Aurora Cloud? How can I learn more about Aurora Cloud and stay up-to-date?
Aurora Cloud is a platform and suite of products that allows today’s Web2 businesses to capture the value of Web3. 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.
