Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced last week the launch of its new blockchain templates. According to the web company, the AWS Blockchain Templates provide a “fast and easy way” to create and deploy secure blockchain networks using popular open source frameworks. AWS also reported that the templates enable users to focus on building their blockchain applications instead of spending time and energy on manual setup of your blockchain network.
“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.”
AWS then added that the templates will allow users to launch an Ethereum (either public or private) or Hyperledger Fabric (private) network in a matter of minutes. The templates create and configure all of the AWS resources needed to get you going in a robust and scalable fashion. The AWS Blockchain Templates for Ethereum:
- Ethereum Network – US East (Northern Virginia)
- Ethereum Network – US East (Ohio)
- Ethereum Network – US West (Oregon)
