AWS Blockchain Templates

Many enterprises are keen to test blockchain technology or create decentralized applications but are not willing to make a considerable investment right away. The AWS blockchain templates provide an ideal option for such companies.

Enterprises can set up the blockchain instantly and can keep their focus entirely on building their DAPPS(Decentralized applications). AWS provides two template options – Ethereum or Hyperledger fabric. Both frameworks offer distributed consensus, smart contracts, and access control features. The templates also include components that help the customers manage, monitor and browse the blockchains

AWS Blockchain Templates use Docker containers stored in Amazon ECR to deploy blockchain software. The AWS Blockchain Template for Ethereum offers two choices for the Container Platform :

  • ecs—Specifies that Ethereum runs on an Amazon ECS cluster of Amazon EC2 instances.

  • docker-local—Specifies that Ethereum runs on a single EC2 instance.
