Overall Satisfaction with IBM Blockchain Platform

In NuArca we are using IBM Blockchain Platform to solve real problems. We have several products based on blockchain. We used this across the projects and departments. We are solving several business problems with it. For example, we've built a voting solution, certificate solution, and an asset distribution solution. We are partnering with several US companies to provide these solutions to them.
  • This is a well managed private chain so, best in providing solutions to private organizations.
  • For an organization that manages a large amount of data, IBM Blockchain Platform is highly recommended.
  • Security-wise it's well designed to work with several organizations and consortia.
  • IBM Blockchain Platform dashboard can be better and fast.
  • Feature-wise many advanced features can be added for better management of IBM Blockchain Platform.
  • The certificate is difficult to handle and not auto-renewed when it's expired. It's a really difficult process to renew it.
  • We worked with AST (American Stock Transfer) to record their votes. It was our first product to run in production, which gave us really a big ROI after we started our project.
  • We also started working with PipelineDL and tracking their assets, which made a big impact on supply chain industries.
We used Kubernetes for many purposes. We deployed IBM Blockchain Platform in Kubernetes. We manage our own cloud application in Kubernetes. We used Event Streams to stream incoming requests before processing in Blockchain. We have used VPC to manage our own SDK and apps before processing data in Blockchain.
Support is not bad, but it could be better. It's a slow response even for production-grade problems. We expect faster responses while facing issues in real-time.

Do you think IBM Blockchain Platform delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with IBM Blockchain Platform's feature set?


Did IBM Blockchain Platform live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of IBM Blockchain Platform go as expected?


Would you buy IBM Blockchain Platform again?


IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service, IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), IBM Event Streams (formerly Message Hub), IBM Load Balancer, IBM Cloud SQL Query, IBM Cloud Object Storage
This is a huge platform. This whole platform can be managed inside the Kubernetes by themselves but for production-level support and throughput, it's strongly recommended to use IBM Blockchain Platform. There are some pros and cons, but they are improving. So, I think if an organization needs a private blockchain platform, then this is recommended.

Using IBM Blockchain Platform

10 - We have several departments working in different project but most of them connect with blockchain.
