IBM's approach to open technology
For several years, IBM has been recognized as a leader in open technology, from its early work with Apache to its current work across all layers of the cloud stack and application development. This recognition comes on the back of tireless collaboration with fellow industry leaders and clients alike. The case for open is clear: Projects that are managed under open governance have been found to be more successful, have a longer life, and are less risky than proprietary projects. The most successful projects are those that ensure interoperability and portability, and address various other enterprise needs such as security, scalability, and accessibility. IBM isn't just an open source consumer; it is also an ardent contributor to several projects, including Eclipse, Linux, OpenStack, Cloud Foundry, Node.js, Docker, Hyperledger, and many more. The company's ongoing commitment to open technology is viewed as a means to form the very foundation of enterprise systems and solutions.

Autoscale your database with ScaleBase for zero downtime of cloud applications
Clouds are becoming the core IT infrastructure for hosting and delivering web scale, enterprise-grade, highly elastic applications in a "use and pay" fashion. Start-ups as well as established business behemoths face tedious challenges with highly scalable, mission-critical applications. Back-end databases are the essential module for every type of transactional, interactive, and collaborative application. Data storage and management systems must be cognitively adaptive to fulfill emerging needs. However, traditional databases are insufficient for cloud-scale applications. ScaleBase is an innovative, highly scalable, zero downtime, cloud-scale database solution. This article describes how to prepare and migrate ScaleBase to IBM SoftLayer. A sample application shows how ScaleBase functions in an online, off premise, on-demand cloud environment.

In it, you learn how IBM UrbanCode Build, Docker Trusted Registry and the new Docker plug-ins for IBM UrbanCode Deploy automate the delivery of Dockerized applications to different environments, such as on-premises or hybrid cloud, in a way that provides enterprise-grade governance, traceability, control, and self-service. IBM Bluemix provides the public cloud environment, while on-premises Docker Swarm acts as the private cloud. Combined, they provide a hybrid environment for multi-container applications that are orchestrated by IBM UrbanCode. The Docker application also uses the IBM Bluemix Secure Gateway service to connect to backend containers that are running on-premises in a Docker Swarm cluster.
