Smart Contract Management

Easily Register, Deploy, and Manage Smart Contracts

Managing smart contracts on blockchain networks can be a difficult process. Kaleido’s smart contract management solution provides a comprehensive way to handle smart contracts on your blockchain networks.

What it

Smart Contract Management

is

What it is

A comprehensive compiler service designed to be used before you deploy the contract on-chain, so you have a verified binary that can be promoted to your environments. This form of binary promotion of artifacts has been standard practice in enterprise applications and middleware for decades. Now we bring that approach to the enterprise blockchain.

Smart Contract Compiler

This compiler is designed to be used before you deploy the contract on-chain, so you have a verified binary that can be promoted to your environments. This form of binary promotion of artifacts has been standard practice in enterprise applications and middleware for decades. Now we bring that approach to the enterprise blockchain.

Source Code Management

Integrates with your existing SCM solutions, starting with Github. We support both public and private repositories and can pull from branches, tags or particular commits. The exact version (commit hash) of the source code used in any compilation so that you can go directly back to the exact lines of code that were part of the compile.

Transaction Analyzer

Every transaction that runs through the chain is automatically analyzed. A signature is generated for the bytecode of each verified contract version you compiled and promoted to the environment with the deployed bytecode exactly matching that signature.

Hyperledger Fabric at a glance

Permissions

Built for permissioned networks

Governance

Data isolation and strict governance enabled by Hyperledger Fabric certificate authority

Transaction Flow

Unique Execute-Order-Commit endorsement model where transactions are initially executed on a set of peers while ordering service handles packaging and delivery.

Consensus Algorithms

Consensus protocols such as Solo, Practical Byzantine Fault Tolerance (PBFT), Raft or Kafka (to be able to use several ordering nodes) can be plugged in.

Smart Contract Language

Go, Java, Node.js

What Is Hyperledger Fabric?

Since launching in 2015, Hyperledger Fabric has been a top choice for enterprises looking to build apps on permissioned blockchain networks. The modular architecture is capable of powering large-scale applications that require enterprise-grade data security.

The ability to protect certain details of peer transactions has made Hyperledger Fabric a go-to protocol for industries like financial services, supply chains, and the insurance industry. It works for complex use cases that involve personally identifiable information and proprietary business data.

Hyperledger Fabric is one of the many protocol choices available on Kaleido. With a full suite of plug and play services, flexible cloud deployment options, and powerful APIs, Kaleido is the easiest way to run a Fabric network anywhere.

Benefits of Hyperledger Fabric

Hyperledger Fabric is an open source project designed to handle enterprise-grade use cases. A key differentiator is its quick transaction throughput. Developers choose to build applications with Hyperledger Fabric because of its modularity. It’s flexible, allowing for more innovation and optimization regardless of industry. Other benefits include scalability and security, key pillars of any enterprise application.

Better performance

One click is all it takes to deploy Ethereum nodes in the Unlike other private networks that require every peer to execute transactions and maintain a full ledger, Hyperledger Fabric allows for more delineation of roles among members

Open source

Part of the Hyperledger project of the Linux Foundation, the architecture of Hyperledger Fabric allows for scale and performance

Permissioned network

Developers can build subnets or channels to keep certain transactions and data private while maintaining a shared ledger

How it works

How it Works

Kaleido provides enterprise-grade smart contract management as a native component on the Kaleido platform, an industry-first capability to empower organizations to grow their business network without needing to worry about common challenges associated with shared IT. Kaleido customers can manage how smart contracts are deployed and by whom. 

In an enterprise blockchain project, the beating heart of the solution is the shared business logic agreed upon among all parties, codified in smart contracts on the chain. The management, versioning and lifecycle of this shared business logic is an important governance activity for the business network. Equally important are the practical considerations of debugging transactions running through this business logic in production.

As organizations add new members to their consortium and reach more mature stages of their blockchain implementation, they can now manage smart contracts across environments and control who can deploy to their business network directly from the Kaleido user interface, rather than learning and using Ethereum’s APIs. And for the first time ever on an Ethereum-based network, users can verify and audit which lines of code were executed for every transaction.

So many projects making their way from PoC, into pilots and production have shown the importance of getting the lifecycle right for the Solidity source code of your smart contracts. The Ethereum model that the business logic is stored on-chain in compiled form is beautifully simple and effective in its architecture. However, this compiled “EVM bytecode” is not itself readable. To govern, manage, install and debug this business logic, you need to have verified on-chain versions of your smart contracts tied back to exact lines of source code in your source code management system.

We are proud to be the only enterprise Ethereum platform that provides an architecture and out-of-the-box solution for enterprise smart contract management. Our unique end-to-end infrastructure brings together your existing system of record for source code management and reviews, with managed deployment of smart contracts to the chain, simple REST APIs to allow all participants to access those contracts, and traceability of the transactions on-chain back to the exact source code executed.

Web3 Use Cases
Run Better on Kaleido

Hyperledger Fabric is a private blockchain that allows developers to create subnets, or channels, meaning that certain proprietary or personal information can remain confidential. This makes Fabric a protocol of choice for industries like financial services, insurance, and supply chain management.

Supply Chains

Hyperledger Fabric networks can increase transparency and traceability of transactions within the network. This transparency can be used to monitor real-time location data, limit fraud and counterfeit goods, and track ESG efforts.

Digital Assets

Complex multi-party business networks built on Fabric can easily tokenize assets, transact instantly, share data, and eliminate cumbersome paperwork as financial business flows are automated.

Insurance

Moving insurance transactions to blockchain can eliminate fraud, automate claim processing, and digitize legacy systems. Hyperledger Fabric also allows stakeholders to automate Know Your Customer (KYC) processes via smart contracts.
