A development team wants to actually code, right?

Only IBM Container Service provides a native Kubernetes experience that's secure, easy to use, removes the distractions related to managing your clusters, and extends the power of your apps with Watson and other cloud services, binding them with Kubernetes Secrets. It applies pervasive security intelligence to your entire DevOps pipeline by automatically scanning Docker images and live containers for vulnerabilities and malware, leveraging IBM's X-Force Exchange.


In a detailed demo, developer advocates create and configure a cluster, deploy an app to it, and then answer your questions.


Get the code and work through the steps of deploying an app into production on a distributed cluster.

What it does:
