We’ve Introduced .NET in Bluemix and Open Sourced the Buildpack

Share this post:

Last October, IBM and Microsoft announced a partnership agreement which includes bringing .NET to IBM Bluemix and we’re happy to share that it’s here! At the Cloud Foundry Summit earlier this week, we announced the release of ASP.NET 5 as an Experimental runtime within the Bluemix Labs catalog.

This announcement will help developers to:

  • Enhance ASP.NET 5 apps and build microservices in ASP.NET 5 using the rich portfolio of Bluemix services like Watson and Internet of Things, or choose from partner services like Twilio
  • Standardize around one platform that can run languages from .NET, Java, Node.js, PHP, Python, Ruby, Go, and more
  • Use IBM DevOps Services to automatically push changes from Visual Studio to Bluemix via code linked in Github
  • Support hybrid cloud and multi-cloud strategies. Bluemix Secure Gateway service quickly and easily enables secure access from Bluemix to SQL Server and other applications whether in your data center, in Azure, or in another cloud.

For all you .NET developers, this means building apps with Watson, Cloudant and more is right at your fingertips. Here’s a demo capturing the highlights:

In addition to that, today we are thrilled to announce that we have also open sourced the .NET buildpack, which can now be accessed on GitHub.
