Tech firm Blockchain Technology Partners (BTP) has announced a new feature that allows customers to run smart contracts on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Quantum Ledger Database (QLDB). Customers may now integrate the DAML open-source contract language with AWS.
Speaking on the new development, BTP CTO Kevin O’Donnell said using DAML on QLDB powered by AWS will be a game-changer.
“There are plenty of scenarios where there is a trusted centralized operator or a natural authority but there is still a requirement to ensure data is not tampered with. DAML on QLDB addresses these use cases combining the expressive power of DAML with the resilience of Amazon Web Services.”
The feature which will be made available via its Sextant for DAML will boost the use and security of smart contracts.
The BTP’s Sextant for DAML platform before now had been integrated with Hyperledger’s Sawtooth and Amazon Aurora. QLDB isn’t the first incorporation with the platform.
The Digital Asset Modeling Language (DAML) is designed by the Digital Asset blockchain firm. It launched the language back in April last year. In the same month, it was already announced that Hyperledger’s Sawtooth would be integrated. Amazon’s Aurora was announced in June.
Last year in May, AWS also launched its Amazon Managed Blockchain (AMB) allowing customers to create blockchain networks for their companies.
