About The IBM Blockchain Platform

IBM's enterprise-ready platform: The IBM Blockchain Platform

The IBM Blockchain Platform is a blockchain offered in two ways: either software-as-a-service offering on the IBM Cloud or via software to be deployed on any Kuberenetes cluster v1.17 or higher. It's the only fully integrated, enterprise-ready blockchain platform that's designed to simplify the development, governance, and operation of a decentralized, multi-institution, multi-cloud business network. The IBM Blockchain Platform accelerates collaboration in this decentralized world by leveraging open source technology from the Hyperledger Fabric framework.

The IBM Blockchain Platform makes it fast and easy for network members to start developing and quickly move to a collaborative environment with the performance, privacy, and security for even the most demanding use cases and regulated industries.

Start small and grow

The IBM Blockchain Platform allows you to deploy only what you need and dynamically add to your environment; you can alter the resources (CPU/Memory/Storage) on the individual nodes, or you can add more nodes in and of themselves. You can migrate from proof-of-concept to pilot to production on a secure, high-performance, and fully scalable network that you can’t outgrow.

The newest options give you the flexibility to bring your own infrastructure and deploy anywhere. This means deploy on-prem, or another hosting provider, while connecting your blockchain nodes and members together to transact. All this with the same look, feel and easy to use tooling that the IBM Blockchain Platform provides.

The platform is designed to be an easy and economical on-ramp to developing and testing pre-production applications through growing production ecosystems.
