WHAT IS AERGO?
AERGO proposes to be a 4th generation “enterprise ready” blockchain protocol combined with a state of the art development platform. It aims to foster a comprehensive ecosystem of complementary dApps, technologies and service providers that leverage secure cloud delivery models. AERGO aims to advance enterprise blockchain by enabling autonomous business and intends to open a new era of mass market usage of blockchain. Through AERGO, it is proposed that businesses can benefit from both public and private blockchain innovation, whilst being able to build, deploy and manage new services.
WHAT PROBLEMS DOES AERGO SEEK TO SOLVE?
Existing smart contract platforms and marketplaces fail to incorporate critical infrastructure requirements for the development and hosting of dApps. As a result, the majority of dApps are either built and hosted on decentralised platforms that suffer from slow transaction speeds, high operational costs and incompatibility with legacy IT systems. Adoption of the technology is therefore impeded due to difficulties with enterprise IT integration and a lack of developer-friendly and easy-to-use software tools. Many implementations also lack the enterprise grade capabilities that are critical to run real business applications in both private and public deployments. AERGO’s platform seeks to enable enterprises and developers to easily design, build and deploy their own blockchain applications within the cloud. The platform aims to offer the possibility for creators to tailor their blockchain and applications to their needs, by giving them the choice to run across either a public, private, or even hybrid network. By being able to leverage and combine the different characteristics, found in public and private blockchains, enterprises and developers have maximum flexibility and choice, when designing innovative applications and services.
WHAT MAKES AERGO DIFFERENT?
AERGO aims to be fast. Unlike existing blockchain implementations, AERGO aims not only to be horizontally scalable, but also support micro-services based applications that are optimized for vertical scalability. This should allow dApps to take advantage of multi-core hardware. AERGO aims to be easy. It proposes to provide comprehensive IT integration and support services for clients who wish to deploy and maintain new products and business services based on AERGO. Proposed new technologies include: a super-fast and efficient blockchain protocol; a new powerful SQL smart contract engine; advanced IT integration APIs; and easy to use developer tools. These are intended to be supported by a new dApp orchestration and deployment framework. This framework allows developers and businesses to install, manage and run these applications quickly and efficiently at scale.
HOW DOES AERGO PROJECT DIFFER FROM MANY OTHER SIMILAR PROJECTS?
AERGO’s core technology is already being used by over 25 million users. The adaptability and production-proven quality-of-service of AERGO’s core technology in enterprise deployments demonstrates the level of technological sophistication in comparison to alternative protocols.
AERGO is not meant to be an experimental (or theroretical) playground for pushing the limits of blockchain technology, but a productive tool for everyday developers. For developers and IT system-level architects, it aims to provide a production-hardened development and deployment platform.
As a tool for writing apps, AERGO seeks to introduce the first platform with key features and concepts familiar to full-stack developers, such as SQL, reactivity, and isomorphic programming. A blockchain, which at its core has been designed to allow systematic branching and merging, AERGO’s development platform is proposed to be built to appeal to all developers and encourage collaborative development.
A new SAM software stack (SQL, AERGO, and Meteor) aims to allows developers to easily build and deploy dApps on the AERGO platform.
