Do you think robots like tennis? My guess is that when the Robot Apocalypse starts, you’ll see them playing all the time. So, for the human race to survive, it will be critical for us to learn as much as we can from the large amount of data generated at the Wimbledon tennis championships and collected by IBM. I encourage you to take part in the Wimbledon Innovation Challenge. You’ll have access to tennis data and use IBM Bluemix to build an app that consumes and analyzes this data in useful, innovative ways.
Here’s the latest post in my “BluemixRox” series on deploying popular open-source projects onto Bluemix. Piwik is a PHP-based open source web analytics platform that gives valuable insights into your website’s visitors, your marketing campaigns and much more, so you can optimize your strategy and online experience of your visitors.
As you've probably heard by now, we are very excited to announce that the Bluemix platform is now officially available as a commercial offering. As part of this announcement we've introduced new IBM and 3rd party services, updated our UI and docs and perhaps most importantly, introduced pricing.
Today marks the general availability of IBM Bluemix, the open cloud platform intended to facilitate rapid development of applications in the cloud. With more than 50 services and flexible, pay-as-you-go pricing, the GA adds a lot of new functions since the last beta refresh.
Bluemix supports the blue-green or zero downtime deployment technique to enable continuous delivery and minimize downtime events. Try this script at hub.jazz.net to assist with blue-green deployments.
If you created a mobile client app that accesses Mobile Cloud services during the Beta, you’ll need to update your app. Many APIs in the Mobile Cloud Services SDK have changed.
The newest version of the Mobile Cloud services is now available on Bluemix! If you’ve been with us since the Beta, there are several key items you’ll want to know about. This post contains a general overview of the changes that were made to the Mobile Cloud SDK and services.
An OpenSSL security exposure  that affects the node.js runtime in Bluemix was fixed in an update to the IBM’s node.js version 0.10.28, which is embedded in Bluemix node.js buildpack v1-20140617-2114. It was also fixed in the open source version of node.js 0.10.29.
