Amazon Launches AWS Blockchain Templates For Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric
AWS Blockchain templates, which the company claims will make it easier for developers to create blockchain-based projects. Amazon Web Services (AWS) “blockchain-as-a-service” platform is intended to compete with similar projects from Oracle and IBM.

Blockchain technology allows you to create applications where multiple parties can record transactions without the need for a central office for transactions to be secure and verified. Transactions are immutable and individually verifiable.

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.

In a blog post about how to use its blockchain templates, AWS vice president Jeff Barr acknowledged blockchains general lack of clarity by referencing a 1976 Saturday Night Live sketch about Shimmer Floor Wax.

“Some of the people that I talk to, see blockchains as the foundation of a new monetary system, and a way to facilitate international 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,” Barr wrote. “Either way, it’s clear that there are a lot of intriguing possibilities and we are working to help our customers use this technology more effectively.”

The AWS templates implement the blockchain framework that the user chooses as containers in an Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) cluster or directly in an instance of EC2 that runs the Docker.
Users can view the Getting Started page to begin using AWS block templates. There is no additional charge for using the models.
