IBM InterConnect 2017

March 19th-23rd

Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino Las Vegas, NV

Cloudsoft is once again delighted to be a third time silver sponsor of IBM InterConnect conference 2017 hosted at the the beautiful MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay hotels in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

At this year's conference, we have two speaking events put on by Cloudsoft Founder and CEO, Duncan Johnston-Watt and Senior Engineer, Mike Zaccardo:

Deploying and Managing a Global Blockchain Network

Session ID: 2444A

March 21st 11:30-12:15

Location: South Pacific J

Blockchain technology has leapt to prominence in the past year, notably with the establishment of the open source Hyperledger Project hosted by the Linux Foundation. This talk examines Blockchain's impact on financial services and asset management. Using Cloudsoft Application Management Platform (AMP), we show how we can rapidly deploy and manage a Hyperledger Fabric running on a Bluemix Private Cloud across San Jose, London, and Singapore, creating a geographically distributed Blockchain network. Finally we drill down on the Apache Brooklyn blueprint that models this fabric and makes it possible.

Hyperledger Blockchain Network: Demo of Global Deployment and Management

Session ID: 7372A

March 22nd 14:30-14:50

Location: Engagement Theater #1

Blockchain application developers want to develop, run and test application chaincode, not deal with the plumbing. Cloudsoft AMP automation gets your Blockchain network up in just a few clicks. We show how to use Cloudsoft AMP to rapidly deploy and manage a Hyperledger Fabric running on a Bluemix private cloud across San Jose, London and Singapore, creating a geographically distributed Blockchain network. Finally, we drill down on the Apache Brooklyn blueprint that models this fabric and makes it possible.

We will also have a booth in the expo hall at Booth S 323 in the Cloud area, and be demonstrating our latest with Cloudsoft AMP blockchain endeavours, of which you can follow on our blog page:
