New Features for IBM Cloudant

Share this post:

Cloudant is releasing three new important features

  1. More flexible pricing
  2. New dashboard
  3. Bring Your Own Key availability for Dedicated Hardware plans

More flexible pricing

Over the past few weeks, we have been rolling out the ability for IBM Cloudant users to have more control over their Cloudant Standard plans and provisioned throughput capacity. Customers will have the ability to more accurately set the provisioned throughput capacity according to the needs of their applications. The Standard plan is backed by 99.95% SLA at all prices points and changes to provisioned throughput capacity are usually available within seconds.

What do you have to do? No change, all current users on the IBM Cloudant for IBM Cloud Standard and Lite plans will be transparently upgraded. To learn more about provisioned throughput capacity, visit our documentation.

New dashboard

Frequent fliers of the Cloudant dashboard may have noticed some aesthetic changes over the past few weeks. We have adopted IBM Cloud’s open source design framework, the Carbon Design System. We are incredibly excited about this change and welcome any and all feedback you may have.

All users were transparently upgraded to the new design, so head on over to your Cloudant Dashboard to check it out!

Bring Your Own Key availability for Dedicated Hardware plans

For clients that need to have control over their encryption keys using IBM Key Protect, please review the following documentation.

Best,
IBM Cloudant Team

P.S. The IBM Cloud display name is changing from IBM Cloudant NoSQL DB to IBM Cloudant in the upcoming weeks. This won’t affect any programmatic usage.
