Consortium startup R3 has launched its Corda distributed ledger (DLT) platform on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) marketplace.
David E. Rutter, CEO of R3, said the news marks a "milestone" for enterprise blockchain technology.
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.
