Last week we updated everyone with the forthcoming release of Bluzelle as a caching solution. As a quick recap, Bluzelle is a data store technology that can be used as a database and data cache. We’ve chosen to come first with a data cache for customers. This week I’ll describe the core features and how it can used for certain industries.
Bluzelle Cache Core Features
With Bluzelle cache we make use of the technical achievements we made with our prior two releases:
Availability & Performance
Like miner nodes on the Ethereum or Bitcoin blockchain networks, Bluzelle’s nodes are decentralized, being owned and operated by members of the public, all over the world. This means no matter where a Bluzelle customer is, a Bluzelle node is nearby to serve their requests. This translates to very high performance when accessing data stored on Bluzelle, with data coming from that nearby Bluzelle node.
Bluzelle replicates all data in a swarm, so that every member of the swarm has a complete copy. This is exactly how Ethereum and Bitcoin work — every mining node has their own complete local copy of the blockchain database. Bluzelle customers have the same assurances as blockchain users, that their data is always safe and available, thanks to an underlying architecture that is inspired by blockchain technology.
Bluzelle, uses the same 256-bit elliptic curve cryptographic technology that drives Ethereum and Bitcoin, and therefore has the same security characteristics. Bluzelle also uses the same trustless consensus algorithms. These ensure that only the owner of the data is allowed to modify or read it, much like how only the owner of a blockchain wallet can spend its cryptocurrency.
We’ve identified two initial industries that would benefit the most from our cache solution: video games and media.
