EROX, the Enterprise Super Solution Explained
Software as a Service
Software as a Service or SaaS is an important software distribution model which involves third party-providers hosting over the air applications to end users. Centralized service providers give customers network access to these applications and store user data either locally or on the cloud. Businesses have to rely on the SaaS provider to facilitate a secure environment for their data. This leaves data vulnerable as locally stored and cloud based data are at risk of being stolen by hackers, being damaged or even lost. A security breach could have a profound effect on a business. Decentralized cloud-based solutions alleviate this risk by distributing data in chunks over a peer-to-peer blockchain based network.
RiveX envisions an economy where both individuals and enterprises can securely store their data using blockchain or decentralized ledger technology. Using blockchain coupled with a common networking and database solution, there will be no single entity governing user data which eliminates any single point of failure.The RiveX hybrid chain model allows individuals and enterprises to selectively choose which data sets are made public, and which are made private. This revolutionary model bridges centralized and decentralized systems by allowing businesses to proceed with their own current processes and only migrating data sets that require the RiveX solution.
RiveX BaaS Model
Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) is one of the core components for RiveX’s revenue model. BaaS is the modernized Software as a Service (SaaS) in the decentralized world enhanced by the strength and uniqueness of blockchain technology. Customers are able to leverage cloud-based solutions to build, host and use their own blockchain applications, smart contracts and functions on the blockchain while the cloud-based service provider manages all the necessary tasks and activities to keep the infrastructure agile and operational. It is an interesting development in the blockchain ecosystem that is indirectly aiding the blockchain adoption across businesses.
Individuals can either choose to be the provider or the user. By being a provider, the individual will be incentivised for assisting the network by pledging their own unused storage (becoming a storage node) or by assisting in securing the network during data retrieval (becoming a validator node). Being a user, the individual will be given assurance on data availability as well as the option to share their data set publicly or privately (encrypted).
