Digital Asset’s DAML Smart Contract Language Now Extended to VMware Blockchain

Digital Asset, the creators of the open source DAML smart contract language, is working with VMware, Inc (NYSE: VMW) to integrate DAML with the VMware Blockchain platform.

Combining an enterprise-grade blockchain platform with a transformative smart contract language, this collaboration will allow for broader reach and support as a combined offering, following a recent announcement that DAML has been open-sourced.

“DAML has been proven to be one of the few smart contract languages capable of modelling truly complex workflows at scale,” said Michael DiPetrillo, Senior Director of Blockchain at VMware. “VMware is delighted to be working together on customer deployments to layer VMware Blockchain alongside DAML. Customers demand choice of language execution environments from their blockchain and DAML adds a truly robust and enterprise-focused language set to a blockchain platform with multi-language support.” DAML is an open source programming language designed specifically for use in multi-party business processes, often referred to as smart contracts. VMware Blockchain is deployed in enterprises worldwide, offering a distributed blockchain for optimal security and scalability.

”Digital Asset is delighted to collaborate with VMware to bring DAML to their extensive customer base. VMware’s customers place significant value on security, privacy, uptime, and performance, which is aligned with the DAML value proposition,” said Chris Clason, Director of Strategic Alliances at Digital Asset. VMware plans to distribute DAML with its VMware Blockchain platform directly to its existing customer base and through its partners.
