IBM beta-tests secure cloud blockchain service
IBM is cranking up the security on its cloud-based blockchain service.
On Thursday it began beta-testing a new high-security service plan for IBM Blockchain, with dedicated infrastructure for each customer.
Until now, it has offered only a starter cloud service for developers who wish to experiment with blockchain technology. That service runs in a multitenant cloud, with infrastructure shared among hundreds of blockchains.
The new service plan is still cloud-based, but “you get your own resources dedicated to you,” said IBM Vice President for Blockchain Technologies Jerry Cuomo.
