Web 3.0: Empowering SMEs with Revolutionary Cloud Services for the Digital Era

25 May 2023

For large enterprises with sufficient investment, to ensure the security of their own data, they can choose the hybrid cloud deployment method, build high-quality computer rooms and access bandwidth offline, store their own data offline, and operate external services online In this way, we can flexibly respond to the fact that Internet services are growing and solve our own data security problems.

For small and medium-sized enterprises, the investment in building a hybrid cloud is too huge, and they have to make a corresponding balance between data security and cost. The possibility of a full set of voice service equipment increases, but data security is their lingering obsession .

To some extent, under the existing cloud service model and architecture, it seems impossible to solve the pain points of SMEs' informatization data security. After all, the informatization of small and medium-sized enterprises is to ensure the smooth development of their own business, and they will never give up business development because of the data security that must be guaranteed. But if there is a new technology that can take into account both, it must be the first choice for small and medium-sized enterprises to go to the cloud.

Therefore, the only way that can be thought of must be to break the existing technical architecture and model, and use leapfrog thinking to solve all this.

Looking at it now, web3.0 may be the best of both worlds solution

The thing is, blockchain technology will bring together all the centralized data with the help of AI and IoT and convert it into information that cannot be hacked or copied. Moreover, the nature of Web 3.0 will bring about models that support privacy and antitrust. It does not incentivize centralized platforms that control user data.

The industry will see a shift centered around decentralization and privacy. With users now in control of how their data is viewed, the monopoly of the tech giants will end and data privacy hacks will be reduced to zero.

This is extremely attractive for small and medium-sized enterprises to use cloud services to solve their own informatization problems.

Hesitation and solutions for small and medium-sized enterprises

In fact, the biggest decision-making problem for enterprises in the cloud service market is to care about the security of their own business and data, which is one of the reasons why more and more large enterprises are adopting hybrid cloud.

However, for small and medium-sized enterprises, there is still a subconscious feeling of insecurity when putting all their business and data on the cloud. After all, subject to cost and expenditure, these small and medium-sized enterprises cannot build huge data centers to achieve the high security of hybrid cloud, and can only rely on the data protection provided by cloud service providers.

This also means that many small and medium-sized enterprises have to store their own customer information and corresponding business information in the space provided by cloud service providers.

It can be seen from many experiences that this has become a key point that hinders the management of small and medium-sized enterprises from making the final determination to promote informatization.

Because enterprise informatization has reached the era of digital intelligence, all data must be connected, and the AI ​​decision-making model built by the enterprise can be used to increase the learning ability and finally realize the function of assisting decision-making.
Data security in this process must become the focus of attention of all small and medium-sized enterprises.

And web3.0 as a whole, which disperses and stores data in each user's blockchain, just solves this point.

As for the decisive factor for enterprises to decide to use cloud services, after the popularization of blockchain-based web3.0, small and medium-sized enterprises can rest assured of this. Because the enterprise's data is all stored on the blockchain instead of the space provided by the cloud service platform, the enterprise's own data security is guaranteed.

Because the blockchain has the characteristics that all data is shared on the chain, but without the data generation and the authorization of the holder, others cannot get the key to analyze the data, which allows small and medium-sized enterprises to safely and boldly store their own operational data on the entire blockchain.

And you only need to arrange a small database for yourself offline to store the indexes of all data, so that you can query it when you use it in the future.

After all, in the process of blockchain operation, the enterprise is the only one who knows where the user is and the data generated by the user. It can completely compare the corresponding information registered by the user by indexing the data chain generated by the user. When the user information needs to be called, the method of sending an authorization request to the user.

This not only solves the problem of safe storage of the enterprise's own operational data, but also puts the security of user data, which the country attaches great importance to, to a particularly important position.

Use unrecognizable user data

In the process of large-scale use of user data by enterprises, national laws are increasingly inclined to protect the security of user data. In this state, many cutting-edge companies are exploring the "usable and unidentifiable" technology of Internet user data.

The problem is that under the current Internet technology conditions, the technologies discussed now need to go through a series of complex authorization, encryption and decryption, calculation, data transmission, coupling and other processes before they can be partially realized.

And a system based on web3.0 just ensures that this method can be implemented quickly, and is simple and efficient.

After all, all user data is stored on the blockchain in the form of passwords, and no company has the right to explore it. Without the permission of the user, there is no way to see the content of the data.

However, enterprises can add indexes to the data, and these indexes can be replaced by the functions that user data needs to be calculated in the system in the enterprise system during overcoding. On the one hand, the automatically generated index marks the configuration of user data. On the other hand, it also calculates the required user data content through the internal system of the enterprise. When the data code is obtained, the data is translated twice to form a system-only understandable code. And this set of things can replace the user's original data and participate in the system's retrieval and use of user data.

This solves the most basic problem of "usable unrecognizable" technology.

In addition, with the increasing use of AI (artificial intelligence) in the social environment, the collection of corresponding data and the deep learning of the system on this basis have become the key conditions for the growth of many AI systems.

In this context, "usable but unrecognizable". It can not only ensure that the deep learning of AI can continue, but also not expose the identity of the user, and play a role in protecting the privacy and security of personal information.

After all, whether it is the knowledge graph or the metaverse, the other two possible core application directions of web3.0 in the future will be guaranteed by the "usable and unrecognizable" user data security method to ensure healthy development.

Evolution of cloud services

Web3.0 is decentralized, if enterprise cloud services gradually transition to such a system in the future, the corresponding cloud service providers may have to adjust their business models.

Because the technical models based on the Internet have changed, core service providers based on these models must adjust their business models, business structures, and technical foundations.

Looking at cloud service providers in the web 3.0 era, it is likely to change from the model of shopping malls and storage centers to the model of parking lots and Internet highways.
On the one hand, because the deployment of web3.0 needs to add more high-speed channels and network traffic entrances, the platform should build more data exchange centers so that the data flow on the chain can be more rapid and smooth.

On the other hand, in order to meet the offline core data storage requirements of enterprises, the platform needs to build more storage terminals, and increase the smoothness of data communication and communication channels between the cloud service platform and enterprises, so that enterprises can quickly transfer the data provided by cloud services. The corresponding service is transformed into its own business.

Especially in terms of data storage, software and hardware decoupling, easy expansion, automation, policy-based or application-driven are necessary conditions for cross-chain cloud platforms.

After all, blockchain is a technical concept, not a protocol. Between different blockchains extended under different consensuses, and between the hard forks generated by the consensus modification of the same blockchain, it is theoretically impossible to interact. To form an ecology, it can only be carried out under one chain, but this violates the The purpose of decentralization, so the industry needs cross-chain technology.

Web3.0 users of different blockchain ecologies need to interact, and cross-chain technology will play an important role in this process. In this regard, the cloud service platform needs to build a lower-level protocol.

As far as business applications are concerned, the future cloud service platform system should neither restrict upper-layer applications nor bind lower-layer hardware, and can realize protocol intercommunication of unstructured data; at the same time, it should have perfect monitoring capabilities to realize application awareness.

At the same time, the cloud service system will also adopt a full user-mode architecture, which can completely coexist with other processes in the same operating system, support the deployment of all-flash or hybrid SSD/HDD storage nodes, and allow each instance in the cluster to have different hardware configurations. This kind of hardware heterogeneity is suitable for the scene with complicated distribution of blockchain computer rooms.

In addition, the future cloud service platform also provides distributed block storage services through the standard ISCSI protocol, which can be integrated with a variety of virtualization platforms, database systems, and application systems, and almost meets all cross-chain requirements.
