That’s like saying you can integrate Hyperledger into nem. With the managaged blockchain solution, they manage the whole thing for you and they currently only have Hyperledger and Frabric as options there, with Ethereum coming soon. So if anything, they would have to integrate nem and offer it as an option in their managed environments. Call me crazy but I don’t think they will.
They say QLDB doesn’t do everything a blockchain does, which is true, but my guess is that the vast majority of businesses will be able to build what they want with it despite that.
“Amazon QLDB is a fully managed ledger database that provides a transparent, immutable, and cryptographically verifiable transaction log owned by a central trusted authority”
That basically covers just about everything a business wants out of blockchains, apart from smart contracts, which nem doesn’t even really have, and public transparancy, which I argue most businesses won’t care about.
In addition to that, it does certain things better. For example there is no bloat. You store exactly what you want and that’s it. No blocks, accounts, tokens, all that yazz. You could get rid of all that for permissioned Catapult but then you sure as sh** wouldn’t be able to share code base with nem anymore.
Obviously I don’t know every use case and I don’t know the internals of most businesses, so this just me sharing my thoughts.
