February 12, 2019 / Krystle M

The entire platform of IBM is made on Hyperledger Fabric, which is the product of a project that helps with cross-industry blockchain technology use. Hyperledger is hosted by the Linux Foundation. Recently, an article was published to ZDNet that described a new launch from IBM to host their mainnet in a Melbourne-based data center. By launching the mainnet here, customers will have the ability to run applications on the cloud-based platform. The new data center is planned to launch in March, joining the other centers that are currently in place, including Tokyo, Dallas, London, Sao Paulo, and Toronto. Rupert Colchester, who is the head of blockchain for the Australia location, said that this second center makes it easier to provides the technology for a larger audience.
