Hyperledger Cello is a blockchain provision and operation system, which helps manage blockchain networks in an efficient way.


Using Cello, everyone can easily:

  • Build up a Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) platform quickly from scratch.
  • Provision customizable Blockchains instantly, e.g., a Hyperledger fabric network v1.0.
  • Maintain a pool of running blockchain networks on top of baremetals, Virtual Clouds (e.g., virtual machines, vsphere Clouds), Container clusters (e.g., Docker, Swarm, Kubernetes).
  • Check the system status, adjust the chain numbers, scale resources... through dashboards.

A typical usage scenario is illustrated as:

Typical Scenario

Main Features

  • Manage the lifecycle of blockchains, e.g., create/start/stop/delete/keep health automatically.
  • Support customized (e.g., size, consensus) blockchains request, currently we mainly support Hyperledger fabric.
  • Support native Docker host, swarm or Kubernetes as the worker nodes. More supports on the way.
  • Support heterogeneous architecture, e.g., X86, POWER and Z, from bare-metal servers to virtual machines.
  • Extend with monitor, log, health and analytics features by employing additional components.

Documentation, Getting Started and Develop Guideline

For new users, it is highly recommended to read the tutorial or index first.

And feel free to visit the online documentation for more information. You can also run make doc to start a local documentation website (Listen at localhost:8000.

Why named Cello?

Can you find anyone better at playing chains? :)
