Last week the XPages service added support for creating hybrid XPages applications. This marks an important step for the runtime, since it enables support for a key use case for XPages in Bluemix. A hybrid application in this context is one that combines a front-end Bluemix cloud application, with data stored on an external server. For XPages, this means a Bluemix application using the XPages runtime combined with data NSF(s) hosted on an external private Domino server.
I had the pleasure of attending the OpenStack Summit in Tokyo with over 5000 OpenStack enthusiasts. OpenStack Summits are an opportunity for the development community to come together to share information about the current state and advancements of various OpenStack projects. The design summit portion of the conference is especially collaborative, enabling members of the OpenStack community to discuss project issues and roadmaps.
IBM is excited to announce our latest Bluemix Public region in Sydney, Australia. Sydney is live and open for business! This means developers in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, and more just received a supercharger for their apps. Global expansion lets our users optimize performance, store data closer to home or in-country, and deploy apps in more places to achieve their own SLAs better.
Join us for an exclusive event where we will discuss how leading companies around the world are taking advantage of the cloud and how IBM is helping them to be successful. Discover the new technology and best practices that companies around the world are employing to move faster and focus on innovation that truly matters to their customers.
Learn how you can have a worry-free solution on-premises or in an IBM SoftLayer data center that is managed for you. Hear about detailed capabilities that IBM and Blue Box provide that are differentiators in the market. Also, learn how public cloud is the key to a hybrid scalable cloud solution. See how IBM's open cloud platform, Bluemix, integrates open technologies to enable client's developing cloud native applications using OpenStack infrastructure.
Angel Diaz will host Jesse Proudman, CTO of Blue Box an IBM Company, Moe Abdula, IBM VP of Cloud Foundational Services, and Monty Taylor, Director of OpenStack Innovation as they gaze in to their crystal ball and share with you their insights in to the future of OpenStack. Angel will challenge them to make some predictions about the future based on their deep technical skills and business experience. It should make for some compelling conversations.
Rocket Mainframe Data Service, a Bluemix-enabled service from Rocket Software, allows developers to easily access mainframe data from Bluemix with very little friction. In fact, developers can use their favorite stack to access the mainframe data without worrying about the internal mainframe formats. In part 2 of the series on Rocket Mainframe Data Service, we will cover the details on how to get started with this service.
