Run on the IBM Cloud

The IBM Blockchain Platform on IBM Cloud — deployed with Kubernetes — offers advanced control, flexibility, scalability and enhanced developer tools.

It provides total control over your network and certificates, featuring an award-winning user interface that simplifies and accelerates the deployment and management of Hyperledger Fabric components. You can also access key capabilities including:

Build your network faster, easier and seamlessly.
With smooth integration between smart contract development (VS Code) and network management; simplified DevOps to move from development to test to production in a single environment, and support for writing smart contracts in JavaScript, Java, and Go.

Operate and govern networks with total control.
Deploy only the components you need (Peer, Ordering Service, Certificate Authority) and upgrade easily through Kubernetes. The redesigned console lets you manage all network components in one place, no matter where they’re deployed, giving you complete control of your identities, ledger, and smart contracts.

Grow distributed networks with ease through multicloud flexibility.
Connect to nodes running in any environment (on- premises, public, hybrid clouds). Easily connect a single peer to multiple industry networks. Start small, pay as you grow for what you need with no upfront investment.
