AboutThis Industry Connections activity is to provide disaster recovery capabilities for secured distributed financial applications. Financial workloads need a highly secure, trusted technology with decentralized, distributed transaction handling capability, where Blockchain plays a role. Disaster causes outages to entire Blockchain nodes and enterprise workloads. Disaster recovery at the backup geo location helps to continue Blockchain nodes and enterprise workloads. After unplanned disasters, it is not possible to have completely synchronized consistent data copy on the target site, when distance is longer between geo locations. The goal is to use predictive analysis on different rolling disaster failure events using Machine learning or Deep learning techniques and do a planned recovery before unplanned outages, so that the target site will have complete data copy and bring up Blockchain nodes and enterprise workloads. Planned recovery helps to drain all production site data to the target site gracefully, hence the target site will have consistent synchronized copy.
Get InvolvedWe welcome new participants from large and small corporations, academia, industry, and government agencies that are interested in Disaster Recovery for Blockchain Nodes and Enterprise Workloads. Members will include but are not limited to:
- Blockchain infrastructure companies
- Data centers
- Cloud security
Possible Industry OutcomesProposed deliverables and outcomes from this Industry Connections activity may include documents (e.g., white papers, reports), proposals for standards, conferences and workshops, databases, computer code, etc.
- Webinars and workshop about disaster recovery handling for Blockchain systems
- Identification of the gaps in standards
