FlureeDB – A Different Kind of Blockchain Solution
FlureeDB is an enterprise blockchain-based database solution that combines blockchain’s security, immutability, decentralization and distributed ledger capabilities with a feature-rich graph-style database. After an 8-month beta program that included over 700 participants, FlureeDB was officially released in late August. Unlike other enterprise blockchain solutions that are designed for asset transaction-oriented applications such as payment processing, FlureeDB is a database at its core, and, as such, is geared to record-keeping applications such as healthcare, real estate, insurance, supply chain, ownership and voting. Offering a permissioned blockchain that can span company boundaries, FlureeDB is also an ideal solution for consortium blockchains and secure cross-organization collaboration.
As Brian Platz, Co-founder and Co-CEO at Fluree PBC (Fluree) put it, “Fluree DB is a better more modern way of managing data — it provides unbreakable data integrity and an easy way to prove data hasn’t changed”, a feature which he believes will become increasingly desirable for a broad range of enterprise applications as businesses realize that it’s feasible.
Platz previously co-founded SilkRoad Technology, a cloud-based human resources software solution which grew to over 2,000 customers and 500 employees in 12 global offices. With a broad background and years of experience in enterprise software, database management and database tools, Platz co-founded Fluree in 2014 and has focused on the design and development of FlureeDB for the past four years, working toward the vision of a database optimized for today’s enterprise applications and providing a foundation for custom permissioned blockchains.
