Amazon Reveals Blockchain Templates for Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric
Apr 24, 2018
 

AWS blockchain templates give AWS users working on blockchain projects a faster way to set up two versions of the technology, on the Ethereum blockchain or the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Fabric. The launch comes six months after Oracle unveiled its cloud service built on the Hyperledger Fabric and about a year after IBM announced its own Hyperledger-based blockchain platform.

Both Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric are popular among developers — the former is used by hundreds, if not thousands, of blockchain-based services. This move further into the world of blockchain, Amazon hopes, will help the company complete with its competitors: IBM, which is one of the leaders in blockchain development, reported $5.5 billion in revenue from its cloud platform in the fourth quarter of last year.

For the blockchain industry, having the support of Amazon — one of the largest and farthest reaching companies in the world — could be considered to be a huge vote of confidence for the technology.
