How Hyperledger Fabric works

Hyperledger Fabric is an open, proven, enterprise-grade, distributed ledger platform. It has advanced privacy controls so only the data you want shared gets shared among the “permissioned” (known) network participants.

Smart contracts document the business processes you want to automate with self-executing terms between the parties written into lines of code. The code and the agreements contained therein exist across the distributed, decentralized blockchain network. Transactions are trackable and irreversible, creating trust between organizations. This enables businesses to make more informed decisions quicker — saving time, reducing costs, and reducing risks.

Benefits of Hyperledger Fabric

Permissioned network

Establish decentralized trust in a network of known participants rather than an open network of anonymous participants.

Confidential transactions

Expose only the data you want to share to the parties you want to share it with.

Pluggable architecture

Tailor the blockchain to industry needs with a pluggable architecture rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.

Easy to get started

Program smart contracts in the languages your team works in today, instead of learning custom languages and architectures.

Production blockchain solutions built with Hyperledger Fabric

Hyperledger Fabric has quickly become one of the most popular open-source DLT projects with hundreds of deployments globally. In 2019, 30 companies in the Forbes Blockchain 50 were using it — more than any other framework. We are seeing Hyperledger Fabric continuing to gain traction in the industry.

To date, no other distributed ledger technology framework enjoys the breadth of adoption by Cloud Service Providers such as AWS, Azure, IBM Google, Alibaba, and Oracle, than Hyperledger Fabric.

Blockchain technology has moved beyond the hype and there exist hundreds of networks in production today. Many of the production blockchain solutions in production today are built with Hyperledger Fabric. Take a look at a list of tools and solutions built with Hyperledger Fabric.
