Dan / Kyle,
Regarding active and passive Bluemix System. How do you ensure that no data is lost if you have to failover to the passive system if you are not actively syncing both systems? Or do you have to set an expectation of from last save and then adjust your save times accordingly? Thanks.

Hey Kelley – There are two assumptions you have to make in order to assume no data is lost: (a) You have to assume that your runtimes are stateless – that is you don’t store data anywhere except inside a database. (b) You have to assume that your back-end services (e.g. databases) are actively synced. We can do that today in Bluemix with several of our databases like Cloudant and DB2 as a Service. I hope that helps!

Connected Vehicle Apps, Bluemix, IoT Foundation, Watson – A Perfect Combination

Back in September at the CTIA Supermobility conference, Ford Motor Company hosted a Connected Vehicle Hackathon at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. This was the first ever Ford sponsored event designed explicitly to drive awareness and community around their Connected Vehicle Infotainment strategy, SYNC AppLink. Ford teamed up with the city of Los Angeles to make data available for developers to use in their applications. Over 170 people attended the event from 15 different countries. At the end of the week, each team had seven minutes to present and demo their application concept and ten semi-finalists were named.

I’m going to the Watson Developer Conference and why you should, too

We, at Watson, have abstracted the complex machine learning away, empowering developers with APIs for more than 15 cognitive services publicly available on the Watson Developer Cloud. The widespread availability of state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms is fueling the rate at which novel applications are being developed. As a result, the future of this cognitive era will help solve even the most difficult problems.
