What is Amazon Managed Blockchain

Amazon Managed Blockchain is a fully managed service that you can use to create and manage blockchain networks and network resources using open-source frameworks. With Amazon Managed Blockchain, you can build applications where multiple parties can securely and transparently run transactions and share data without the need for a central authority.

You can use Managed Blockchain to create scalable blockchain resources and networks quickly and efficiently using the AWS Management Console, the AWS CLI, or the Amazon Managed Blockchain SDK.

Amazon Managed Blockchain scales to meet the demands of thousands of applications running millions of transactions. Managed Blockchain also simplifies how you manage blockchain networks, resources, and certificates. Moreover, with Managed Blockchain, you can quickly create proposals for a vote among network members and track a wide range of operational metrics. This includes metrics related to requests, computational load, memory usage, and data storage.
