IBM To Open Two Data Centers For Blockchain Network In Australia
IBM has launched the mainnet of blockchain from its own data center based in the Australian city of Melbourne. It will presumably allow the users to utilize the company’s cloud server in order to release their own programs, ZDNet reports.
IBM's blockchain network is based on the technology of the Hyperledger Fabric project operated by Linux Foundation. This solution was created for the development of distributed technologies in interbranch processes. IBM also hosts centers for data storage and processing in Dallas, Tokyo, London, Toronto, and Sao Paulo.
The representatives of IBM plan to launch another center in Australia this March, which will be located in Sydney. According to Rupert Colchester, the director of the blockchain technologies at IBM, the new data center will make it possible to preserve information and provide greater access to distributed technologies.
With the expansion of the blockchain infrastructure, users' data will be stored within the country, and programs for administration and economic processes will work safely. Colchester added that users' projects can already be called mature, and this requires the creation of conditions for storing information within Australia.
DLT are widely used in all industries of the country, and residents are actively discussing this issue to find the best way to implement distributed technologies for their own businesses, Colchester claims.
As previously reported, IBM has entered into a partnership with the authorities of Algeciras Bay Port, under which the Tradelens blockchain-solution will be used to improve maritime cargo.
