BTP brings smart contracts to Amazon QLDB with Sextant for DAML
- DAML on Amazon QLDB integration brings the benefits of smart contracts to AWS customers underpinned by an immutable ledger
New York -- February 25, 2020 -- Blockchain Technology Partners (BTP) today announced the general availability of its integration of DAML, the open source smart contract language created by Digital Asset, with the Amazon Quantum Ledger Database (Amazon QLDB), commercially supported by BTP’s Sextant for DAML.
Amazon QLDB is the third platform commercially supported by Sextant for DAML, an integrated offering that radically simplifies the deployment and management of DAML enabled ledgers. This complements Sextant for DAML’s support for Hyperledger Sawtooth and Amazon Aurora.
“There are plenty of scenarios where there is a trusted centralised operator or a natural authority but there is still a requirement to ensure data is not tampered with,” said Kevin O’Donnell, CTO of BTP. “DAML on Amazon QLDB addresses these use cases combining the expressive power of DAML with the resilience of AWS.”
"Businesses need to stay nimble to compete and thrive while also maintaining high standards of security and auditability. BTP's Sextant for DAML with QLDB makes it seamless to run distributed applications without the operational overhead or compromising security," added Shaul Kfir, co-founder and CTO of Digital Asset.
