Blockchain adoption is surging worldwide as corporate giants fall in line and take measures to adopt and integrate the distributed ledger technology to handle various aspects of their business.
Walmart, the largest retailer in the world has been filing blockchain patents, Samsung may be about to use blockchain for their huge logistics operations, and now Amazon Web Services (AWS) has deployed Ethereum and hyperledger fabric blockchain templates on its website. According to Amazon's subsidiary AWS, the templates have been created to allow for quick and easy deployment of blockchain systems on site.
A fast and easy way to create and deploy secure blockchain networks using open source frameworks
The templates are there for users to integrate blockchain into their Amazon retail enterprises, perhaps the highest level of mainstream blockchain customization and adoption to date in the blockchain space. Amazon generated $30 billion worth of revenue last year and, allowing sellers to develop their own blockchain systems independently of each other, could allow for rapid development and practical implementation of different experimental blockchain networks.
There is no additional charge for AWS Blockchain Templates. You pay only for the AWS resources needed to run your blockchain network. You can create and deploy blockchain networks in any public AWS region.
The tools to create new blockchain networks can be found on the getting started page of AWS. The launch of the templates comes two years after AWS partnered with Digital Currency Group (DCG) in 2016 to begin experimenting with and integrating blockchain.
