LAS VEGAS – (BUSINESS WIRE) – 27 November 2018 – AWS re: Invent 2018 – Blockchain Technology Partners, the leading enterprise blockchain company, today announced the general availability of Sextant ™, its powerful blockchain management platform, on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace for containers. Sestante unlocks the blockchain value for businesses. Accelerate innovation by providing businesses with a platform on which to build; ensuring that they focus on the development of business applications, not on the blockchain infrastructure.
"AWS Marketplace for Containers enables AWS customers to use the Amazon Elastic Container Services (ECS) console and AWS Marketplace for Containers to discover, manufacture and deploy container solutions, including a complete blockchain management platform from Blockchain technology partners," said Dave McCann, Vice President of Migration Services, AWS Marketplace and Service Catalog. "With today's announcement, AWS Marketplace has extended the existing benefits and capabilities to container products, with a rich discovery and research experience that offers access to a well-kept catalog of reliable software from trusted vendors. AWS customers can find and distribute Sextant and simplify the distribution of Hyperledger Sawtooth. "
"We are thrilled to be part of the AWS Marketplace for Containers launch at AWS re: Invent 2018 and we are delighted to be able to take advantage of AWS Fargate to simplify the supply of Sextant to our customers," said Duncan Johnston-Watt, Blockchain Technology Partner . "With Sextant's help, companies can easily navigate blockchain management and, with the launch of AWS Marketplace for Containers, they can be up and running and explore the brave new world of blockchain in no time."
BTP has identified Hyperledger Sawtooth as the best open source blockchain technology for the enterprise based on the support for the Ethereum smart contracts, its connectable consent mechanism and its scalable and highly modular architecture. Furthermore, the clear separation between the network and the application layers makes it exceptionally easy for developers to create new blockchain applications by exploiting the existing code and applying the best existing programming practices.
Sextant is a complete blockchain management platform that uses a carefully curated Hyperlyger Sawtooth distribution – built, tested and managed by BTP – to deploy enterprise-grade Sawtooth networks with a single click. These networks can be standalone, typically if a developer is testing a new blockchain application or an intelligent contract or joining existing Sawtooth networks.
Sextant is cloud-first and Kubernetes is the logical choice for production level orchestration. Under the covers Sextant automatically generates Kubernetes manifests so that Sawtooth can be distributed on existing or new brand Kubernetes clusters distributed by Sextant on AWS using Kubernetes Operations.
