BlueBarricade – lighting fast and secure blockchain on IBM mainframe

The story behind BlueBarricade started with a project inside a major car manufacturer trying to get better control over the global distribution of spare parts. This was a perfect scenario to initiate a blockchain solution with many external parties, high demand on warehouse accuracy and full traceability. The initial test result of that blockchain set up was very slow even at low volume transactions and the solution did not meet the high demands for security.

Fast forward 2 years and the introduction of IBM enabling blockchain with Hyperledger in an Openshift stack together with BlueBarricade’s development enabling a blockchain set up in a level 3 security zone (same level of security as the credit card transaction in a bank) and the BlueBarricade enterprise blockchain solution was a huge success.

Today we are working with a number of projects in a broad spectrum of industries including banks, insurance, music, video and donations.

We are a global embedded partner with IBM and as such we engage with IBM customers globally. Our business model is to license out the BlueBarricade embedded code stack and we assist IBM, IBM partners and customers in creating stable, secure and lighting fast blockchain solutions for optimal business value.

BlueBarricade is based in Stockholm. For more information, please contact us.
