It is a production-ready managed service providing an industry leading permissioned enterprise blockchain, with 99.95% availability, integrated identity management, and broad applicability across industries with rich integration to Oracle's leading applications.

Keeping the food supply safe with enterprise blockchain.

Blockchain Cloud—Easy to build on and out

Oracle-managed services that run on OCI.

Simple provisioning

Provision the platform with a few clicks and get all Hyperledger Fabric nodes and underlying infrastructure services (compute, containers, network, storage, identity management).

Complete blockchain platform

Start with a production-ready Hyperledger Fabric blockchain, including membership services, peer nodes, and ordering service, plus a rich API Gateway and Operations Console from Oracle.

Maximum availability architecture

The only managed enterprise blockchain service with 99.95% SLA providing maximum availability via automatic deployment and replication across three availability domains in OCI regions.

Easy expansion for partner organizations

Easily add partners locally or globally. Provision a new service instance in any supported Oracle Cloud region and complete the guided process to join the new organization.

Blockchain App Builder

Low-code dev/test environment supporting scaffolding, local testing, and automated deployment of smart contracts. Can automatically generate smart contracts from declarative specs and aids in development, testing, deployment. Provides tokenization support with auto-generation of chaincodes for full token lifecycle.

Business logic for blockchain

Create smart contracts for real-time business-to-business transactions or to validate matching purchase orders, invoices, and shipping information prior to payment. Expose through REST API gateway or invoke via client software development kit.

Endorsement policies

Define an endorsement policy specifying the number of required signatures and specific organizations' whose endorsements you require.

Event notifications & Triggers

Automate manual tasks and synchronize with systems of record by posting custom events from chaincode to trigger back-office updates or downstream actions.

Permissioned blockchain with identity management

Control addition of network participants and client-only organizations to ensure only authorized organizations can access permissioned blockchain. Using pre-integrated Oracle Identity Cloud and federation options, define and manage account and roles to control member's privileges. Control channel membership and add read-only peers to a channel to provide visibility to the ledger for auditing purposes. Implement fine-grained access control in smart contracts and request on-demand audits.

Confidentiality domains

Dynamically create channels in the Console's Web UI or programmatically as needed through REST APIs, define authorized members and their roles, then join their peer nodes to run smart contracts and host ledger copies. With the ability to define detailed policies, these channels can be used for sharding to increase scalability, or to isolate groups of member organizations with specific access to separate ledgers and related transactions.

Set up private data collections

Control which channel members can see and store private data in their side databases, shared only with other authorized members, with one-way hashes used to prove the transactions added to the channel ledger.

Use fine-grained access control

Define identities and groups, then combine with resources and operations to create ACLs stored and tracked on-chain, which chaincode developers can check to enforce access permissions.

API and event-driven development

Simplify integrations by invoking transactions and queries running chaincode methods through REST APIs and receive a synchronous or async response when transaction commits. Subscribe to events and receive callbacks to integrate with back-office systems and downstream applications.

SDK-based client development

Enroll members, add peers, create channels, deploy smart contracts, register for events, and run transactions or query ledger data using client components built in Java, Go, or Node.js.

Easy integration

Enable Oracle and third-party SaaS and on-premises systems to invoke transactions or query blockchain nodes through unique enterprise adapters and workflow tools in Oracle Integration Cloud. Simplify event integration with back-office applications using bi-directional event subscriptions.

Blockchain-native apps

Build new applications or SaaS extensions to allow developers to run transactions on the blockchain using IaaS Compute, Java, Oracle Kubernetes Engine, Mobile Hub, Visual Builder, or Integration Cloud Services.

Oracle Apps support for blockchain API

Leverage Blockchain out-of-the-box in Oracle FLEXCUBE core banking, Digital Innovation Platform for open banking, Netsuite SuiteCloud Platform, and other Oracle industry applications.

Globally available

Deploy blockchain instances in multiple Oracle Cloud regions around the world to connect organizations across countries and continents.

Hybrid, multi-cloud deployment

Connect organizations deployed on-premises or in third-party clouds.

Decentralized ordering

Multiple organizations can run and contribute ordering nodes to the blockchain network, enabling greater decentralization, privacy, scalability, and resilience through geo-redundant ordering clusters. Associated channels with different ordering clusters for even greater privacy.

No lock-in, Open Source

Connect non-Oracle blockchain nodes from other clouds and any vendor supporting Hyperledger Fabric. With the open source Hyperledger Fabric from the Linux Foundation, leverage the power of community.

Interoperability resources

Berkeley DB state database

Speeds up the underlying key/value store with powerful Berkeley DB with SQLite interface, enabling greater concurrency, and SQL-based rich query support at 10 times the performance of other key/value databases.

Rich history database

Can stream transaction history to Oracle DBCS, ExaCS, or Autonomous Database (ADW/ATP) and integrate with Oracle Analytics or 3rd party BI tools for real-time dashboards, rich visualizations, and reports on blockchain transactions.

Supports blockchain tables

Synchronize rich history data to tamper-evident blockchain tables in the Oracle Database to ensure the integrity of analytics and compliance reports with PL/SQL functions for validation.

Intuitive admin console

View network status from dashboard or navigate to Network, Nodes, Channels, and Chaincodes tabs to view blockchain components and manage the network. View channel and peer metrics, node utilization, browse ledgers and logs for troubleshooting.

Fully automated operations

Focus on applications with Oracle-managed service monitoring, integrated identity management, autonomous recoverability, and zero-downtime patching and upgrades.

Dynamically configure changes, scale nodes and resources

Manage the membership, peers, orderers and CA dynamically. Add or configure network channels and set policies, deploy or upgrade smart contracts using Web console or REST APIs. Scale up, down or out blockchain components and storage, or the entire platform.

Blockchain Pricing

Oracle Blockchain Platform Cloud Service offers predictable budgeting with an vCPU-based pricing model. This includes the ability to stop/restart an instance to reduce costs when the platform is not being used to lower costs.

The initial number of vCPUs and storage in an enterprise instance can be adjusted up or down (but not below the minimum) dynamically using the Control Panel, and the new numbers will be reported into the billing system once the scaling operation has been completed.

Blockchain Platform

Comparison Price ( /vCPU)*
Unit Price
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Blockchain Platform Cloud Service - Standard

OCPU per hour

OCPU per hour
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Blockchain Platform Cloud Service - Storage

Terabytes storage capacity per month

*To make it easier to compare pricing across cloud service providers, Oracle web pages show both vCPU (virtual CPUs) prices and OCPU (Oracle CPU) prices for products with compute-based pricing. The products themselves, provisioning in the portal, billing, etc. continue to use OCPU (Oracle CPU) units. OCPUs represent physical CPU cores. Most CPU architectures, including x86, execute two threads per physical core, so 1 OCPU is the equivalent of 2 vCPUs for x86-based compute. The per-hour OCPU rate customers are billed at is therefore twice the vCPU price since they receive two vCPUs of compute power for each OCPU, unless it’s a sub-core instance such as preemptible instances. Additional details supporting the difference between OCPU vs. vCPU can be accessed here.
