We are excited that the IBM Bluemix Container Service with Kubernetes has now gone live. IBM Bluemix Container Service now combines Docker and Kubernetes to deliver powerful tools, an intuitive user experience, and built-in security and isolation. The service leverages cloud services and Watson’s cognitive capabilities to enable rapid delivery of applications. It provides access to all of the DevOps capabilities of Kubernetes including rolling updates to support zero-downtime deployments of new versions.
