Hyperledger Fabric is a robust and flexible blockchain network architecture that provides enterprise-ready security, scalability, confidentiality and performance. Its unique implementation of distributed ledger technology ensures data integrity and consistency, while delivering accountability, transparency and efficiency. As a permissioned network, the fabric delivers a trusted blockchain network, where members are assured that all transactions can be detected and traced by authorized regulators and auditors.

Hyperledger Fabric separates chaincode execution from transaction ordering, which limits the required levels of trust and verification across nodes, optimizing network scalability and performance. Private channels provide multi- lateral transactions with the high degree of privacy and confidentiality required for competing businesses and regulated industries to coexist on a common network. The fabric incorporates a modular approach to blockchain, enabling network designers to plug in their preferred implementations for components such as ordering, identity management and encryption.

In total, Hyperledger Fabric delivers a uniquely comprehensive, elastic and extensible architecture, distinguishing it from the alternative blockchain solutions. Planning for the future of enterprise blockchain requires building on a fully-vetted, open architecture; Hyperledger Fabric is your starting point.

Attention: The Hyperledger Fabric project team is continually working to improve the security, performance and robustness of the released software, and frequently publishes updates.
