Blockchain technology revolutionizes businesses and changes how business transactions are done. It alters the model of how multi-party transactions are performed by enabling a shared, immutable ledger for recording the history of transactions among parties in a business network. For developing any blockchain solution, one has to set up a development environment to create and deploy the blockchain application. This code pattern will get you started with blockchain by showing how to quickly deploy the blockchain network on Hyperledger Fabric using Kubernetes APIs on the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service.
Blockchain is a shared, immutable ledger for recording transaction history. It promotes a new generation of transactional applications that establish trust, accountability, and transparency.
For developing any blockchain use case, the first step is to have a development environment for Hyperledger Fabric to create and deploy the application. In the environment setup, you’ll create a small blockchain network running Hyperledger Fabric 1.0. A Hyperledger Fabric network can be set up in multiple ways:
This code pattern demonstrates the steps involved in setting up your business network on Hyperledger Fabric using Kubernetes APIs on the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service and provides an automated, end-to-end script to quickly deploy your network. The IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service combines Docker and Kubernetes to deliver powerful tools to automate the deployment, operation, scaling, and monitoring of containerized applications over a cluster of independent compute hosts by using the Kubernetes APIs. Cloud-hosted Hyperledger Fabric network can be leveraged for easier collaboration among team members.
This pattern provisions a Hyperledger Fabric network consisting of four organizations, each maintaining one peer node, and a solo ordering service. To deploy your blockchain network:

Before open source was cool, IBM worked to establish open source as technology that's safe (and good!) for the enterprise.
