How to Choose a Right Cloud Provider for Hyperledger Fabric Deployment

When designing and building an enterprise blockchain application on Hyperledger, it is very important to choose the right cloud provider that supports all of your project requirements.
In this event, I will briefly review key components and architecture of Hyperledger Fabric, followed by discussing how to deploy HF on three popular cloud providers: AWS, IBM and Oracle.
Each cloud platform offers managed services as well as more advanced services that require customizations. As such, I will discuss the pros and cons of AWS Managed Blockchain services.
Topics covered in this webinar are discussed in depth in my below book (which is endorsed by many professionals including Brian Behlendorf)
I give away 5 free e-books as well as coupon code for accessing my book for 1 month for free. Direct message me on Linkedin for details.

There will be 45 presentation, followed by 15 minutes Q/A
