Announcements, Blockchain | December 6, 2017 By:

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has teamed with the R3 consortium to allow its Corda platform to become one of the first distributed ledger technology (DLT) solutions on the AWS marketplace.

Amazon Web Services is a subsidiary of Amazon.com that provides on-demand cloud computing platforms to individuals, companies, and governments on a paid-subscription basis.

The partnership will allow AWS users to develop CorDapps, or deploy example CorDapps from R3 directly from the AWS Marketplace. Corda is a distributed ledger platform that is the outcome of over two years of intense research and development by R3 and over 100 of the world’s largest financial institutions. A financial grade ledger, Corda meets the highest standards of the banking industry, yet it is applicable to any commercial scenario.

R3 said the network of companies working with R3 to develop CorDapps has grown to over 60 from a wide variety of industries and regions across the globe. the consortium recently launched version 2.0 of Corda, adding functionality to the stable core application programming interface (API) achieved in version 1.0.

R3 CEO David E. Rutter said Corda is a leading DLT platform for businesses and this announcement marks a significant milestone for enterprise-grade blockchain technology.

“Corda’s strength comes from its vibrant ecosystem of interoperable applications, and extending the pool of potential developers to the vast network of Amazon Web Services users will spark further innovation amongst businesses building innovative DLT apps for finance and commerce,” said Rutter.
