VMware Blockchain Overview

VMware Blockchain is an enterprise-grade blockchain platform that enables multi-party workflows. It uses advanced techniques such as byzantine fault-tolerant state machine replication, authenticated data structures, and integration with smart contract execution engines to enable customers to build and run decentralized multi-party applications.

Key VMware Blockchain capabilities include:

  • Consistency of data in the blockchain and resilience of the system.
  • Maintain privacy and a single verifiable source of truth for all parties to avoid reconciling data.
  • Integration with smart contract languages allows application developers access to all features and the platform while providing familiar interfaces such as the DAML Ledger API.
  • Operational simplicity around deployment, observation, upgradeability, and supportability.
