Markus Ogurek, Global Financial Services & Insurance Industry at HPE, added: “HPE Pointnext is also pleased to announce a Blockchain Discovery Workshop to help customers leverage new DLT operating models and expertise in distributed-ledger, IoT, hybrid, and the-edge.
HPE is excited to be adding DLT to its long history of innovation, so we can help customers meet the challenges they face as they grow and thrive.”
R3 explains that Corda was designed so that IT departments at banks can understand it, deploy it and manage it without having to unnecessarily rethink everything about how they operate. Ensuring its resiliency is crucial to this, and HPE’s technology will enable Corda to deliver on this front out-the-box.
R3 recently announced the completion of the first two of three tranches in its Series A fundraising round, securing $107 million in the world’s largest distributed ledger technology (DLT) investment to date. Investors came from across Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Americas, counting over forty participants from over 15 countries.
