The Cloud as a Data Logistics Platform


  • What do consumers of cloud computing care about?
  • What do they want to know is true?
  • What would be the equivalent of a blockchain transaction in the cloud?

If we position the cloud as a giant logistics platform for data, then we can think of a transaction as the transport or processing of data. Data enters in to the cloud (network), it is processed (compute) and then is either returned to a consumer or kept for re-use at a later date (storage).
