What is a network?
A network serves as the parental resource within Kaleido whereby the blockchain environments and various runtimes fall under. A network can have one or many organizations within it thus creating a "consortium" or multi member business network. Inputs that go into creating a network include setting a cloud region, naming the network, and inviting other members or organizations if applicable.
If you are running on Kaleido's Enterprise subscription tier, you will also have the ability to administer high level RBAC (role based access control) when decentralizing your network.
