New templates let AWS users quickly and easily deploy blockchain networks

AWS Blockchain Templates to make development of blockchain apps easier

Amazon Web Services Changing the Scope for hyperledger and Ethereum

"AWS Blockchain Templates allow you to focus on building your blockchain applications instead of spending time and energy on the manual setup of your blockchain network", the blog post disclosed.

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.

By creating a blockchain network in an Amazon VPC, users will be freed up to spend more time on their apps and services.

Last month, a survey by LendEDU found that more than half of Amazon users said they would consider using an Amazon-built cryptocurrency around the site.

Amazon has quickly followed Chinese tech giant Huawei, and others, in offering blockchain-powered services as part of its cloud computing platform.

"We are launching AWS Blockchain Templates today".

The blockchain is a hash-based, immutable public ledger for recording transactions.

"Some of the people that I talk to see blockchains as the foundation of a new monetary system and a way to facilitate worldwide payments", Barr said in a post last week.

"Some see blockchains as the foundation of a new monetary system and a way to facilitate worldwide payments, others see blockchains as a distributed ledger and immutable data source that can be applied to logistics, supply chain, land registration, crowdfunding and other use cases", stated Barr.

It was on Wednesday that Jeff Barr, who happens to be the chief evangelist of AWS proceeded to outline through his blog post that the newly available "templates" would be moving quite a long way helping the various clients unveil a Hyperledger Fabric (private) or an ethereum (either public or private) network in a matter of minutes, which was to be done by just a few clicks.

Ethereum is an open-source blockchain framework from the Ethereum Foundation that enables you to write blockchain applications that run exactly as programmed without downtime, censorship, fraud, or third-party interference.

Another new competitor in the BaaS market is Huawei, which announced its Blockchain Service, also built on Hyperledger, last week during its analyst conference in Shenzhen.

The ethereum template offers two launch options. Both options create and make use of a DynamoDB table for service discovery, along with Application Load Balancers for the status pages.
