Amazon Web Services launches blockchain database

Amazon Web Services released its Quantum Ledger Database, a fully managed database designed to provide transparent, immutable and cryptographically verifiable transactions logs, according to a Sept. 10 AWS post.

The new blockchain was created to eliminate the need for other organizations to build their own decentralized ledger. Amazon's database helps track products through supply chain networks, records history of credits and debits and validates insurance claim incidents.

Customers who use QLDB can be assured that the change history will not be altered. Additionally, by using cryptography, clients can easily verify that there have been no modifications to the data.
