About

Hi we’re AWS Blockchain!


AWS Blockchain is a blockchain initiative by Amazon Web Services that provides an on-demand cloud computing platform to individuals, companies, and governments, on a metered pay-as-you-go basis. The project started in the first quarter of 2019 and is offering 4 products/services to its partners and customers. If you need a centralized ledger that records all application data changes, and maintains an immutable record of these changes, AWS provides a ledger database. This database is high-performance, immutable, and cryptographically verifiable, eliminating the need for building complex audit tables or setting up blockchain networks. If you need the immutable and verifiable capability provided by a ledger, and also want to allow multiple parties to transact without a trusted central authority, AWS provides a fully managed, scalable blockchain service. AWS' blockchain service makes it easy to setup, deploy, and manage scalable blockchain networks, eliminating the need for you to rely on expensive consulting implementations. Among their products and services you can find solutions for various use-cases such as Data Management, Reputation, Tracking & Monitoring, Letter of Credit, Post-Trade etc.
Technology: AWS platform offers capabilities for building both permissionless and permissioned blockchains. Amazon Quantum Ledger Database (QLDB) and Amazon Managed Blockchain provide the right tool for each job. Both of these fully managed services help companies manage business transactions that require full auditability, and remove the complexity and undifferentiated heavy lifting involved in implementing and managing a ledger database or creating and managing a blockchain network.
Milestones: On April 30th 2019 AWS opens up its managed blockchain as a service to everybody. April 23rd, 2019 AWS Launches Blockchain Templates For Developers.
