IBM Blockchain Platform for IBM Cloud Private
IBM® Blockchain Platform for IBM Cloud Private delivers the components that you need to run a blockchain network on your own infrastructure through IBM Cloud Private. The components include Hyperledger Fabric runtime Certificate Authorities (CAs), orderers, and peers. You can deploy, manage, and set up those components as Kubernetes Helm charts. For more information about CAs, orderers, and peers, see Blockchain component overview .
IBM Blockchain Platform for IBM Cloud Private enables blockchain networks to connect to their system of record and address data residency or infrastructure requirements. This offering allows users to address the following initial deployments to grow their networks:
Set up blockchain peers in a private cloud and connect the peers to IBM Blockchain Platform networks in IBM Cloud. If you deploy peers, you can connect the peers to a Starter or Enterprise network in IBM Cloud. In this case, your peers can leverage the connection profile and other blockchain components in that network. Setting up distributed peers enables networks to grow faster by satisfying the requirements of clients who need to deploy on their local infrastructure. Note that peers in your private cloud are not visible in the Network Monitor of the IBM Blockchain Platform networks in IBM Cloud.
Develop IBM Blockchain Platform networks that are fully custom-managed, fast to set up, and with more flexibility. You can also benefit from receiving IBM technical support. If you want to build up a blockchain network in your private cloud, you can deploy the blockchain components individually in a required sequence. For more information about building up a blockchain network by deploying all components on your own, see Getting Started with IBM Blockchain Platform for IBM Cloud Private .
