APIS Core AMI 2022 Launched on the Amazon Web Services Marketplace
Hello, this is the APIS Team.
APIS Team is working on developing its mainnet and expanding the ecosystem. As a part of this effort, we have conducted research and development related to Amazon Web Services (AWS) based blockchain nodes.
Since registering as an AWS Select Technology Partner in June 2020, we have developed a cloud computing service-based blockchain node product that can be used widely. As a result, APIS Core AMI has been released on AWS Marketplace in July 2021.
In addition, through continuous security monitoring and performance feedback, instance updates have been carried out with improved performance, reliability, and the latest security patch. We have also made Amazon Machine Image (AMI) that can provide a better user experience.
APIS Core AMI 2022 version which is based on the new APIS Core for Docker and server settings has been successfully validated and registered on AWS Marketplace, completing compatibility and performance verification on Amazon Web Services.
