Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform has recently introduced its Blockchainframework for Ethereum (ETH) and Hyperledger Fabric allowing users to build and manage their own Blockchain-powered decentralized applications (DApps), AWS announced in a blog post-Thursday, April 19.
According to the statement, users will be able to create their own Blockchain applications via the AWS CloudFormation Templates tool to avoid the time-consuming manual setup of their Blockchain network.
Founded in 2015, the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Blockchain tech firm released its first production Blockchain code, Fabric 1.0 in July 2017. Hyperledger DLT products have become widespread among companies incorporating Blockchain solutions with platforms to improve their service.
Ethereum network, launched in 2014 by Vitalik Buterin, has become one of the most popular
Blockchain bases for building DApps among developers. Yesterday, April 19, NASA revealed it is developing an autonomous spacecraft that could make decisions using Ethereum Blockchain technology without human intervention.
Introducing AWS Blockchain Templates for Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric
AWS Blockchain Templates provide a fast and easy way to create and deploy secure blockchain networks using popular open source frameworks. These templates enable you to focus on building your blockchain applications instead of spending time and energy on the manual setup of your blockchain network.
AWS Blockchain Templates deploy the blockchain framework you choose as containers on an Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) cluster, or directly on an EC2 instance running Docker. Your blockchain network is created in your own Amazon VPC, allowing you to use your VPC subnets and network Access Control Lists. You can assign granular permissions using AWS IAM to restrict which resources an Amazon ECS cluster or Amazon EC2 instance can access.
