The SIMBA Chain is a platform which directly connects users and providers of government and enterprise networks through blockchain distributed applications (dapps), all without the need of third parties.
SIMBA chain’s main purpose is to provide a software infrastructure for direct communication between users and big data entities eliminating intermediaries. This make the whole system more secure. Started in 2017 as an initiative by the U.S. military, specifically the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the SIMBA chain is developed as a blockchain cloud solution for public-private partnerships. The initial intention of the project was to use the platform for secure messaging that would be less vulnerable to hacking attacks.
SIMBA Chain Inc. was formed in 2017 from a grant awarded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to Indiana Technology and Manufacturing Companies (ITAMCO) and the Center for Research Computing at the University of Notre Dame in order to develop a secure, unhackable messaging and transaction platform for the U.S. military. The SIMBA API is a robust and efficient decentralized distributed technology originally implemented for Defense Department communications. It enabling users across a variety of skill sets to implement DApps without third parties. The platform is designed to accomodate government and enterprise networks.
SIMBA Chain Inc. is a cloud-based, blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) platform, enabling users across a variety of skill sets to implement dapps (decentralized applications). These apps allow direct connections between users and providers, eliminating third parties. The platform is tailored for both government and enterprise networks.
4 Pillars Of Simba Technology
THE SIMBACHAIN PLATFORM HAS THE FOLLOWING FOUR PILLARS TO HELP YOU TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR DATA
CUSTOM BUSINESS APIs
SIMBA models customer business applications and generates blockchain applications and business networks the way you want: user groups, users, events, assets, and interactions (transactions) are converted into a customer API for blockchain access, along with a HTML5 web app for further customization.
Behind the scenes, the custom business APIs are wired to a common SIMBA API, configured using the specified Blockchain and data store. Currently we support Ethereum and Fabric Blockchains, and the IPFS and CEPH datastores.
Assets can represent many things e.g. a physical entity, a document, or a dataset containing a number of text, binary and media elements. SIMBA Data Bundles wrap data for an asset into a Asset Manifest, which specifies data relationships using links to hashes that represent off-chain data on IPFS, or other distributed data stores (CEPH, etc.).
SIMBA captures events from different blockchains using a common API. Users or groups can subscribe to events using the SIMBA platform or setup web hooks for notification of certain events in their own systems.
