The world’s first software development platform offering microservices for the blockchain.
Squeezer is creating a unified blockchain-connector that will allow developers to connect to multiple blockchains. They offer a sandbox in which developers can test their applications and make rapid production deployments.
Squeezer applications are powered by microservices platforms, such as AWS Lambda and Google Functions, which means that the auto-scalability feature is enabled by default. Microservices also support auto-healing and allow for silent cloud deployments.
The Squeezer Platform will empower developers to compile and deploy blockchain applications in multiple stages directly from GitHub, among other code repositories. Squeezer Framework is downloaded more than 75,000 times per month according to the NPM and has been present in the market for 2 years.
As a relatively new technology, blockchain development presents several challenges. To start developing a blockchain project, an individual requires to download all the blocks onto a machine’s local storage (which for BTC represents 400 GB; for ETH – 100 GB; and for LTC – 200 GB approximately) which will eventually decrease the developer’s velocity. Replicating this within the production environment represents another complex task; the developer now needs to create both a stable environment and containers that can replicate hundreds of gigabytes. Blockchain data is stored in logs and each block consists of a log of transactions.
With regards to Bitcoin blocks, for example, every 20 minutes, a new block is generated. Imagine having to retrieve all transactions for a specific wallet address. To do this, you would need to set a node and parse all available blockchain data, which requires a phenomenal amount of computing power. Third-party vendors are now offering API services for doing such jobs. However, when dealing with sensitive data, it is better to find and implement a solution that is hosted on the same datacenter network as the rest of the technology stack to ensure that all data is accounted for.
The solution: Microservices
Essentially, microservice architecture is a method of developing software applications as a suite of independently deployable, small, modular services, in which each service runs a unique process and communicates through a well-defined, lightweight mechanism to serve a business goal. The top cloud companies have already designed platforms where you can deploy auto-scalable code pieces. Among the various microservices platforms are AWS Lambda, Google Functions, and Azure Functions. When you combine the power of microservices scalability with blockchain technology, the result is a finely-tuned stack that can basically support any enterprise organization, at any level.
The Squeezer framework is currently being successfully utilized on large web and API projects that scale and expand as microservices. However, to integrate it with the blockchain, connectors are needed.
Building robust, reliable connectors that can process any amount of blockchain data or any number of requests within a reasonable time frame is not an easy task because of a blockchain’s size, as well as the variety and number of blocks it contains. Nonetheless, we know that this is achievable alongside the right numbers and types of resources assigned to the job.
The solution of connecting microservices to the blockchain involves creating a simple interface that will enable software developers to conduct blockchain transactions without having to deal with the blockchain genesis code or create complex components.
Pay as you go
Now you can enjoy developing your projects for any preferred time frame without the pressure of monthly costs. The Squeezer platform will support multiple code repositories integration and SSO third-party vendors. Forget the server guy that owns your infrastructure velocity. Just stay focused on adding new features to your business logic. Simulate the cloud provider environment on your local machine, there is no need to deploy the code at every iteration. Speed up the entire development cycle 10x and split your project features on how many microservices you want, the sky is the limit!
In 2015, the founder and CEO, Nick Chisiu, came up with the idea to create a framework that would be able to develop, compile, and deploy traditional projects on microservices platforms. By providing consultancy services to various top 1000 US INC companies, he was able to implement the framework in production environments and sustain unlimited requests based on real users’ demands.
In 2017, Nick joined ConsenSys, a top-five blockchain development company, as a
blockchain consultant. By providing consultancy services and delving deeply into blockchain technology, he discovered a connection between microservices and blockchain, adding the Proof-of-Concept (PoC) for the blockchain connector.
The Squeezer crowd sale and the corresponding token creation process will be issued by Golden Data INC, a Belize Company, and will be organized using smart contracts running on Ethereum. Contributors willing to support the development of the Squeezer Project can do so by sending payments via multiple methods. The rate for SQZR tokens is fixed at 1 SQZR = 0.20 USD. The tokens are automatically transferred to the purchaser’s nominated Ethereum wallet at the time of purchase. For more information please visit: https://tokensale.squeezer.io
This does not constitute investment advice. Please review their case purely on merit and proceed only if you are convinced or interested. Also, I do not encourage individuals from the USA, China etc. to invest in an ICO unless they first speak to their lawyers. I only support genuine good people doing great in Blockchain innovation.
