Action Required Service Updates

And we’re off! MQ on IBM Cloud is here

Share this post:

MQ turns 25 years young this year! As part of its birthday celebration, it has a gift for the world: MQ on IBM Cloud.

The service will be generally available as of March 13, 2018.

Here are some of the key improvements we’ve made since releasing Beta:

  • Paid queue managers can be deployed in one of three pre-configured sizes
  • A step-by-step guided tour is included in the service console user interface, making it easier to get started
  • Queue manager connection credentials can be generated through the service’s embedded experience
  • Enhanced documentation with more detail about key areas such as security and queue manager configuration

But the journey doesn’t stop here; MQ is a managed service in IBM Cloud, so you’ll see it evolve and improve without having to lift a finger, as we maintain the service for you!

You are also kindly invited to our webinar about provisioning a queue manager in minutes with MQ on IBM Cloud.

If you’re at Think 2018, you can hear about MQ on IBM Cloud at the following sessions:

Without further delay, you can find and enjoy MQ on IBM Cloud, here. If you’re yet to try the service, there’s a trial queue manager included for you to see what all the quick, zero-effort, buzz is about.
