The IBM Bluemix Container Service combines Docker and Kubernetes to deliver powerful tools, an intuitive user experiences, and built-in security and isolation to enable rapid delivery of applications all while leveraging Cloud Services including cognitive capabilities from Watson. The service launched initially in US South (Dallas) and EU Central (Frankfurt). As the IBM Cloud continues to expand our datacenter scope, the container service is expanding as well. The container service is now available in the Sydney and London regions.
Almost a year ago, when we first announced and released IBM Globalization Pipeline on Bluemix, we were looking to solve a simple problem facing Bluemix development teams wanting to expand into global markets -- how can Cloud dev teams translate their applications into different languages without impeding continuous delivery and disrupting DevOps? In answer, we delivered Globalization Pipeline -- a Bluemix service that enables developers to integrate translation processes into their build and deploy infrastructure and translate their apps using machine translation. Think integration with IBM DevOps services, UrbanCode Deploy, Continuous Delivery, Maven, VS Code, and Atom, think Watson Language Translator, think client SDKs for dynamic app translation updates.
Latently, Bitfusion, and IBM Cloud partnered to provide a deep learning development platform and best-in-class GPU infrastructure allowing you to publicly replicate all AI and ML scientific papers via the Latently Deep Learning Certificate (LDLC) program.
Securely Access MongoDB from a Spring Boot App Running on Bluemix Kubernetes Using Kubernetes Secrets
This example builds on my previous post where I showed how to access a Bluemix MongoDB service from a Spring data app running locally. In that simple example the MongoDB credentials were either hard coded in the application or specified manually on the command line.
In this blog post I'll show how to access a Compose for MongoDB database running on IBM Bluemix from a Spring boot application running locally. Spring is a popular open source framework and container for Java applications. MongoDB is a popular open source document oriented NoSQL database that uses JSON-like documents.
We’ve launched four new global data centers: two in London and one each in San Jose and Sydney. IBM is expanding its cloud footprint to meet enterprise demand—and upping our combined data center count to 59 across 19 countries. Get access to high performance and cognitive services Handling big data workloads with high performance is […]
We're rebranding dashDB for Analytics to Db2 Warehouse on Cloud.
[Kyle Brown (IBM Distinguished Engineer/CTO) and Rick Osowski (IBM Distinguished Engineer/CTO) collaborated with Roland on this post.–Ed.] This is the second post in a series on microservices application development. The series provides a context for defining a cloud-based pilot project that best fits current needs and prepares for a longer-term cloud adoption decision. The previous post, after providing context […]
In this blog post, I'll describe the process of connecting an IBM Graph service on Bluemix with a Spring application. Then we'll deploy that application to a Bluemix Kubernetes cluster, using Kubernetes secrets to securely pass configuration credentials.
