Bluzelle provides an on-demand, decentralized database network that gives applications better performance, greater reliability and massive scalability. To ensure developers get the highest throughout in performance, reliability and scalability, Bluzelle implements swarming technologies. A swarm is a large group of nodes (computers) that work together to store and manage data. Nodes in these swarms can go down and new nodes can come up with minimal impact on the network. Overall Bluzelle is a meta-swarm comprised of multiple swarms. Bluzelle has worked with AIA, Maybank, Temenos, BT, KPMG and more.
