Fujitsu’s collaborative endeavor with Accenture gets officially approved as project “Hyperledger Cactus” by Hyperledger.

Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. and Fujitsu Laboratories of America Inc. (FLA) today announce that their collaborative effort with Accenture was officially approved as project “Hyperledger Cactus” by Hyperledger, an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies hosted by the Linux Foundation.

Fujitsu and Accenture had submitted a proposal to the community for the development of an open source software (OSS) project for secure and reliable integration between multiple blockchains. Together with Accenture, Fujitsu Laboratories and FLA will utilize the Fujitsu Laboratories’ proprietary security technology ConnectionChain to develop an infrastructure software that enables the easy development of integrated services in which multiple different blockchains work together. The companies have open sourced the software for Hyperledger Cactus.

Brian Behlendorf, executive director of Hyperledger, explains:

“There is strong community interest in facilitating the flow of information and transactions across disparate blockchains, and Hyperledger Cactus is tackling that challenge. Now that Hyperledger Cactus is a full Hyperledger project, there will be an even bigger pool of resources and contributors driving this project forward with the aim of delivering market-ready blockchain integration technologies.”

Under the new project Hyperledger Cactus, Fujitsu Laboratories and FLA will integrate the ConnectionChain technology with Accenture’s Blockchain Integration Framework to jointly develop a platform for interconnecting blockchains and further activate digital transformation.

This project will develop the foundation for a new architecture that will eliminate differences such as the timing of transactions between multiple blockchains, enabling asset transfers and recovery from transaction errors. The new open source technology aims to create a modular, extensible system that will enable integration, communication, operations and transactions between different blockchains.

The companies will also offer a Software Development Kit as an OSS to easily offer services that integrate multiple blockchains for software developers. Unlike conventional blockchains, which cannot integrate different blockchains or get excess money back from remitted coins, the Hyperledger Cactus framework automatically links different blockchains. Moreover, the technology can monitor the results of such operations, enabling the rapid development of integrated services that combine multiple blockchains.
