Seengen, Switzerland -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/05/2018 -- Zug has become known worldwide as "Crypto Valley" — the Silicon Valley for cryptocurrencies where leading technology experts and innovative companies from across the globe come together to start new exciting projects and introduce new companies in this area. Where else than in Zug could one imagine a better place to create the first customizable blockchain-based e-voting system? In fact, Luxoft Holding, Inc., a global IT service provider of innovative technology solutions that delivers measurable business outcomes to multinational companies, has partnered with the City of Zug to create an e-voting platform that enables the first consultative vote based on blockchain in Switzerland.

In the pursuit of driving the adoption of blockchain-based services in government, Luxoft is striving to establish a blockchain for government alliance and hence promote blockchain use-cases in public institutions. As Europe's leading supporter of blockchain, Zug already accepts cryptocurrency for services and has digitized ID registrations built on the blockchain. With Luxoft's e-voting platform, a safe and secure move towards online voting is now made possible. With the help from the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Amazon AWS and n', the platform is deployed on three different data centers in the cloud. Two of these are in Switzerland and one in Ireland. By distributing the data into three different data centers, security and data loss risks are distributed geographically, making the system more robust.

While Amazon AWS is worldwide recognized as the undisputed leader in the cloud computing world, n' is paving its way towards the establishment as the "Swiss made" alternative to major cloud providers. In contrast to many cloud providers, this innovative cloud platform is capable of addressing and serving all cloud deployment requirements such as private, public, hybrid and community cloud. The advantages for customers range from agility, flexibility and adaptability to a maximum amount of freedom to build their cloud according to their needs. Along personal support and competitive pricing models, API connectivity for easy and fast transfers of existing developments from or to other major cloud platforms award n' a unique selling point and a competitive advantage.
