IBM Message Hub is being renamed as IBM Event Streams

Beginning the week of September 17, 2018, IBM Cloud will rename IBM Message Hub for IBM Cloud services to IBM Event Streams for IBM Cloud in an effort to closely align with our on-premise deployment option.

Event Streams lets you take advantage of a fully managed Kafka-as-a-service platform that allows you to deploy how you want while integrating your workflows with a scalable, distributed, high-volume messaging service. With Event Streams, you unlock the true potential of your event-driven apps by leveraging a high-throughput messaging backbone that’s optimized for event ingestion into IBM Cloud. This service optimizes event stream distribution between your services and applications.

IBM Event Streams features

With IBM Events Streams, you will benefit from Kafka-made-simple and have the ability to complete the following:

  • Offload work to back-end worker processes

  • Connect stream data to analytics to realize powerful insights

  • Publish event data to multiple applications to react in real time

  • Transfer data into another service (e.g., to long-term storage)

This name change will not change how you experience IBM Message Hub; however, it will help improve naming consistency across the IBM Cloud catalog of services.  Whether developers are looking to use Event Streams for Public Cloud or for Private, the IBM services will have the same name: Event Streams.

Users will first note the Catalog listing and Documentation updates. All external endpoints will remain the same, and during the transition, users may see Message Hub referenced periodically until all related touchpoints are updated.

No immediate action is required following the name change. For more information on using Kafka-as-a-service in the IBM Cloud, refer to our Getting Started Documentation for public cloud applications.

The history of the central processing unit (CPU)

10 min read - The central processing unit (CPU) is the computer’s brain. It handles the assignment and processing of tasks, in addition to functions that make a computer run. There’s no way to overstate the importance of the CPU to computing. Virtually all computer systems contain, at the least, some type of basic CPU. Regardless of whether they’re used in personal computers (PCs), laptops, tablets, smartphones or even in supercomputers whose output is so strong it must be measured in floating-point operations per…
