Choosing Open-Source or Enterprise Edition¶
The Canton application is a single bundle that implements all types of nodes. Which role the application takes depends on the configuration. The main administration interface of the Canton application is the embedded console, which is part of the application.
Canton releases come in two variants: Open-Source or Enterprise. Both support the full Canton protocol, but differ in terms of enterprise and non-functional capabilities:
|Transaction Processing||Parallel (fast)||Sequential (slow)|
|High Throughput via Microservices||Yes||No|
|AWS KMS support||Yes||No|
