In a traditional IT scenario, data is stored in a central location. Users rely on a trusted central authority for retrieving information, updating data, and expecting the authority not to modify the data with malicious intent. It is often impossible to find a single entity that all users can trust, which never fails and cannot be compromised. VMware Blockchain offers a decentralized trust platform that removes the need to rely on a central data repository, which is a single point of failure. VMware Blockchain is a permissioned distributed trust platform implemented using a Byzantine Fault Tolerant (BFT) State Machine Replication protocol. On this episode of the Virtually Speaking Podcast we welcome Joshua Lory to discuss the details of VMware Blockchain to include the recent updates in version 1.6 Josh also shares various use cases that have been benefiting from this solution.
