The Linux Foundation-led open-source Hyperledger blockchain consortium has released its first production-ready blockchain software Hyperledger Fabric 1.0.

Hyperledger Fabric 1.0 is a collaborative effort with more than 150 participitaing developers from 28 organizations, as Forbes (forbes.com) reported.

Some of the contributors to Hyperledger Fabric 1.0 are developers from Cloudsoft,  CLS, DTCC, Digital Asset Holdings, Fujitsu, GE, Gemalto, HACERA, Hitachi, Huawei Technologies, State Street Bank, SecureKey, IBM, SAP, Thoughtworks and Wanda Group.

“Hyperledger Fabric 1.0 is a true milestone for our community.”, as Brian Behlendorf, executive director at Hyperledger told Forbes.

“After over a year of public collaboration, testing, and validation in the form of POCs and pilots, consumers and vendors of technology based on Hyperledger Fabric can now advance to production deployment and operations.”, he added.

“Whilst public blockchains focus on ‘trustless’ networks, Hyperledger is specifically tailored to meet the needs of business customers and is easily integrated into existing systems with a minimum of effort and complexity.”, as Sam Pospischil, software engineer at Everledger, explained before the media.

He commented that Hyperledger Fabric offers a range of identity management solutions that integrate with industry-standard domain authority and enterprose trust systems.

Hyperledger Fabric offers a modular architecture allowing components like consensus and membership service to be plug-and-play, according to Forbes.

“It’s time to take a breath. Hyperledger is ready for much broader usage, for thousands of enterprises to try a POC, or if they have a pilot, now is the time to move into production”, as Behlendorf said.
