Consortium startup R3 has launched its Corda distributed ledger (DLT) platform on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) marketplace.

Allowing AWS users to develop and deploy applications for finance and commerce – or use existing "CorDapps" from R3 – Corda has become one of the first DLT solutions available on the marketplace, according to an R3 blog post.

David E. Rutter, CEO of R3, said the news marks a "milestone" for enterprise blockchain technology.

Rutter continued:

"Corda's strength comes from its vibrant ecosystem of interoperable applications, and extending the pool of potential developers to the vast network of AWS users will spark further innovation among businesses building innovative DLT apps for finance and commerce."

The consortium, which now boasts over 100 banks, regulators and technology firms as members, announced the launch of the production version of Corda in October.

The release saw R3 guaranteeing that the platform's three core APIs would be compatible with older versions of the software.

Corda 1.0 also enhanced privacy, including support for confidential identities, and a network map service designed to make it easier to scale.
