Sure, it’s buzz-worthy, but what is blockchain?

Blockchain is a distributed, shared ledger which produces an auditable and permanent system of record that each permissioned member can validate. Blockchain is predicted to transform business because it speeds transactions.


IDC expects global spending on blockchain to reach $2.1 billion in 2018.


Gartner estimates blockchain will add $3.1 trillion in business value by 2030.

Forbes reports 1/3 of C-level executives are already considering or using blockchain.

Why blockchain on LinuxONE?

Blockchain runs more securely, faster and at scale on the LinuxONE platform. 


LinuxONE encrypts 100% of your application, cloud service and database data, at rest or in-flight. It prevents anyone, even system administrators, from taking control of the system, accessing data or changing applications.

Performance at scale

LinuxONE empowers you to meet demand, even at peaks, without disruption. Exploit up to 170 cores, 32TB memory, and 640 dedicated I/O processors in a single server designed for 99.999 percent uptime.

Collaboration for speed

The IBM Blockchain platform runs on LinuxONE and Hyperledger, an open source collaborative effort to speed cross-industry blockchain technologies. IBM contributes to this community and provides blockchain solutions.

Hear from customers

“We compared benchmarks running on LinuxONE and a comparable x86 cluster, and we found LinuxONE had an undeniable edge when it came to performance and security.”
