Amazon Blockchain

Build scalable and robust applications using blockchain on AWS.

Develop Blockchain Distributed Ledger Applications in the Cloud

There are a growing number of blockchain enthusiasts and companies developing applications on AWS. Blockchain technology makes sense for:

  • Databases with immutable, verifiable transaction records
  • Decentralized apps
  • Apps where scalability and trust matter

Around 25% of all Ethereum workloads currently run on AWS, and many large enterprises use Hyperledger Fabric technology powered by Amazon's cloud services.

Choosing Amazon Managed Blockchain takes away the technical overhead of updates, configuration, deployment and security, and can cut deployment times by as much as 60% in the short term as well as making ongoing maintenance simpler.

Blockchain is rapidly gaining popularity for supply chain management as a way of offering a 'single source of truth', and for decentralized finance, empowering users and removing intermediaries.

Work with QLDB or Managed Blockchain Solutions

Choose from the fully-managed ledger service of the Amazon Quantum Ledger Database (QLDB), a trusted, centralized database solution for rapid-deployment of blockchain applications with immutable and verifiable ledgers.

Alternatively, build scalable applications on Hyperledger Fabric using the Amazon Managed Blockchain Service (support for other open-source solutions such as Ethereum is coming soon at the time of writing). These systems easily integrate with other services, such as Amazon CloudFront's CDN for customer-facing data, videos and APIs, to CLI implementations for managing networks.

Use A Wide Ecosystem of Blockchain Technologies

AWS supports more than 70 of the most popular blockchain solutions from major providers, helping developers work with technologies including:

  • Ethereum
  • Hyperledger
  • Corda
  • Quorum
  • Blockstack

This makes developing blockchain-enabled apps easier, faster, and more efficient.

Use blockchain on AWS to create secure and scalable applications that run on some of the most popular established or emerging ecosystems. It's easy to operate networks and create high-performance apps handling large amounts of data thanks to technologies such as AWS CloudFormation and Amazon QLDB.
