As of May 23rd IBM Bluemix Container Service now provides a native Kubernetes operations experience while removing the burden of maintaining master nodes. Kubernetes itself is based on the Docker engine for managing software images and instantiating containers. Get the details.

The IBM MobileFirst™ team is excited to announce the IBM® Mobile Foundation Beta service, a new service that helps you quickly and easily set up your mobile infrastructure in the Cloud, hosting the IBM MobileFirst Platform Foundation directly on Bluemix®.

What is it?

The IBM Mobile Foundation Beta service empowers developers and IT, to easily leverage IBM MobileFirst Platform Foundation, which enable enterprises to accelerate delivery of their mobile strategy by helping users reduce the effort, skill, and time required to build apps and thereby control their growing mobile backlog.

What can you do?

With the IBM Mobile Foundation Beta service, you can radically simplify building, managing and updating your mobile app. Developers can build their app using the front-end framework and tools of their choice, and easily add push, authentication, offline sync and business logic to their apps across a wide range of supported mobile platforms. Mobile Foundation Beta service enables you to control your application from client to server, and thus allows you to capture business data at the point of interaction.

What do you get?

This Beta service helps you provision and orchestrate the IBM MobileFirst Platform Foundation on the Cloud. Your mobile servers will be created in Bluemix Containers, and will provide you with a reliable and scalable mobile backend to explore in a test environment.

How do you get started?

Get started with the IBM Mobile Foundation Beta service, located in the Mobile section of the Bluemix catalog. For practical experience with this service, see Using the Mobile Foundation service to set up MobileFirst Server on IBM Containers.
