Hyperledger Fabric is a blockchain framework implementation and one of the Hyperledger projects hosted by The Linux Foundation. Intended as a foundation for developing applications or solutions with a modular architecture, Hyperledger Fabric allows components, such as consensus and membership services, to be plug-and-play. Hyperledger Fabric leverages container technology to host smart contracts called “chaincode” that comprise the application logic of the system. Hyperledger Fabric was initially contributed by Digital Asset and IBM, as a result of the first hackathon.
Blockchain technology presents opportunities for disruptive innovation. It enables global business to transact with less friction and more trust.
Blockchain is a shared, immutable ledger for recording the history of transactions. It fosters a new generation of transactional applications that establish trust, accountability and transparency.
IBM Blockchain has joined The Linux Foundation's Hyperledger Project to evolve and improve upon earlier forms of blockchain. Instead of having a blockchain that is reliant on the exchange of cryptocurrencies with anonymous users on a public network (e.g. Bitcoin), a blockchain for business provides a permissioned network, with known identities, without the need for cryptocurrencies.
Hyperledger Fabric is ranked 1st in Blockchain Development Platforms while IBM Blockchain as a Service is ranked 2nd in Blockchain as a Service. Hyperledger Fabric is rated 0.0, while IBM Blockchain as a Service is rated 0.0. On the other hand, Hyperledger Fabric is most compared with Hedera Hashgraph, Microsoft Azure Blockchain as a Service, Cardano, EOSIO and Stellar, whereas IBM Blockchain as a Service is most compared with Microsoft Azure Blockchain as a Service, AWS Blockchain Templates, Oracle Autonomous Blockchain Cloud Service, SAP Cloud Platform Blockchain and Kaleido.
