Sextant™ for Sawtooth unlocks the value of blockchain for business. It accelerates innovation by providing enterprises with a platform that they can build upon; ensuring that they focus on business application development, not blockchain infrastructure.
BTP has identified Hyperledger Sawtooth as the best emerging open source blockchain technology on the basis of its support for smart contracts; its pluggable consensus mechanism; and its scalable, highly modular architecture - in particular the clear separation between the network and the application tiers which makes it exceptionally easy for developers to create new transaction processors leveraging existing code and applying programming best practices.
BTP offers a carefully curated Hyperledger Sawtooth distribution - built, tested and maintained by its engineers - which it hosts on Docker Hub in an open repository.
Sextant for Sawtooth is a powerful blockchain management platform that leverages this distro to deliver one-click deployment of enterprise-grade Sawtooth networks running on industry-standard Kubernetes clusters. These networks can either be stand alone - typically the case if a developer is testing a new blockchain application or smart contract - or join existing Sawtooth networks.
