According to the website, "Hyperledger Fabric is a platform for distributed ledger solutions, underpinned by a modular architecture delivering high degrees of confidentiality, resiliency, flexibility and scalability." Basically, it's a mechanism for implementing biusiness functions supported by blockchain for security and verifiability. "Hyperledger Fabric 1.0 offers a modular architecture allowing components, such as consensus and membership services, to be plug-and-play. It leverages container technology to host smart contracts called 'chaincode' that comprise the application logic of the system." Now of course it's years between the development of a cross-platform specification like this and widespread implementation, but at the same time, development work in learning technology that is beginning now will implement this approach (if not this specification exactly, then something very similar).
