Chainstack developer-first Marketplace to add Codaptor, an open gateway for Corda, simplifying client application integrations and accelerating Corda adoption
Chainstack partners with 180Protocol, creators of Codaptor, adding to its Marketplace the developer’s tool which can integrate with any CorDapp from your favorite technology via automatically generated REST APIs, so that the rest of the architecture can be built using familiar technologies.
Singapore, 8 December 2020 – Codaptor is a way to instantly add Corda to any application stack that helps to improve the availability, reliability, and flexibility of the overall system architecture. Codaptor automatically creates fully featured REST APIs for any CorDapp running on a Corda node, complete with OpenAPI 3 JSON specification and Swagger UI.
Chainstack prides itself on being able to offer the most accessible and scalable platform to enable teams to deploy, manage, and scale blockchain nodes, networks, and applications. The platform allows users to save tens of thousands of dollars per year on average spent on setting up, securing, and maintaining their own infrastructure that is required to operate distributed ledger nodes across protocols. The Chainstack team believes that product teams should concentrate on bringing value to end-users through innovation rather than on infrastructure operations, and constantly looking out for ways to streamline the development experience.
For this reason, the addition of Codaptor, a new open-source initiative by 180Protocol, to the Chainstack Marketplace is a great next step. Codaptor is an open gateway for Corda, simplifying client application integrations and accelerating Corda adoption through creating open APIs for any Corda application (or CorDapp). It provides out-of-the-box capabilities that are beneficial in any Corda application architecture, freeing up valuable engineering time to focus on product features.
Codaptor scans Corda nodes for installed CorDapps and automatically generates REST API for all available functions. It also creates OpenAPI JSON specification, which is widely supported by integration tools across many technology stacks, so that integrations could be created with very little effort.
Phil Holbrook, the CEO of Bond180 Limited, said: “Bond180 has recently launched its technology business 180Protocol to deliver best-in-class technology solutions designed to increase adoption of nascent technology and to accelerate network creation. We are delighted to partner with Chainstack who mirrors our aspirations, and alongside Chainstack we look forward to supporting innovation-focused businesses to succeed with their applications without the worry of infrastructure development. Bond180 is focused on further developing its technology community through 180Protocol as we aim to make data sharing easier in financial services through technology.”
Chainstack takes resilience very seriously, and their dedicated site reliability engineering team whose duty is to ensure that DLT nodes that are run for clients are always available and the service never gets interrupted in case of hardware failures or power cuts. However, Corda nodes do need to be taken offline from time to time when software needs an upgrade. Codaptor gateway can offer client application uninterrupted access to most functionality of Corda nodes whilst they are undergoing maintenance. Note that some functions are to be released shortly.
Chainstack is delighted to announce a partnership with 180Protocol, that will make Codaptor available on the Chainstack cloud platform through the marketplace and hope to be able to offer it on hybrid and self-hosted platforms in due course as well. Development teams utilizing Corda can use Chainstack’s rich set of self-servicing tools to provide a fully managed Codaptor gateway for their Corda nodes and accelerate Corda adoption.
180Protocol will join our partners’ panel as a technology and professional services provider able to offer such services as developing and supporting Corda solutions, developing bespoke integrations for distributed Corda applications for consortia members, and advising on technology strategy and enterprise architecture.
Eugene Aseev, Co-Founder and CTO of Chainstack, said: “We are thrilled about this new partnership and listing Codaptor on our Marketplace. Both our solutions are enterprise-grade, technology-agnostic, and share the same objective of making developers’ life easier. We want to continue to be the place where the best Corda innovators come for their infrastructure and development needs, as we remain a developer-first platform. We will keep adding new applications, services, and developer tools to continuously improve the experience of innovating using Chainstack.”
