Short Description

An automation framework for rapidly and consistently deploying production-ready DLT platforms

Scope of Lab

Blockchain Automation Framework delivers an automation framework for rapidly and consistently deploying production-ready DLT platforms to cloud infrastructure.

What is Blockchain Automation Framework?

Blockchain Automation Framework makes use of Ansible, Helm, and Kubernetes to deploy production DLT networks. Specifically, it makes use of Ansible for configuration of the network by DevOps Engineers. It then uses Helm charts as instructions for deploying the necessary components to Kubernetes. Kubernetes was chosen to allow for Blockchain Automation Framework to deploy the DLT networks to any cloud that supports Kubernetes.

Blockchain Automation Framework initially supports Hyperledger Fabric and Corda. It is the intention to add support for Hyperledger Sawtooth, Hyperledger Indy and Quorum. Other DLT platforms can easily be added.

Hyperledger Fabric

For Hyperledger Fabric, we use the official Docker containers provided by that project. A number of different Ansible scripts will allow you to either create a new network (across clouds) or join an existing network.

Corda

For Corda, we build Docker containers from the Corda source. A number of different Ansible scripts will allow you to either create a new network (across clouds) or join an existing network.
