Hyperledger Besu is an Open Source project designed with a modular architecture to meet the requirements of Enterprise Ethereum projects. Originally incubated under codename Pantheon, Kaleido collaborated closely with the original PegaSys engineering team throughout the project within the ConsenSys ecosystem of projects.
Having an independent codebase, written from scratch in Java with Enterprise in mind, provides great opportunities for innovation for this fast paced project. Hyperledger Besu is ready for your Enterprise network workloads.
Besu is an Ethereum implementation purpose-built for enterprise use. Like the other Ethereum implementations, Besu is also compliant with the Ethereum yellow paper. Implemented in Java, Besu has a robust code base lineage that should give enterprise IT teams a relatively easy time to review for security.
Enterprise blockchain networks require efficient consensus algorithms, with high throughput characteristics, built-in permissioning, and predictable behaviour.
Hyperledger Besu is Open Source, Java based and Apache 2.0 licensed.
