Today, we are announcing the beta availability of a new serverless compute service called IBM Cloud Code Engine.
And what if you don’t have a container image? No worries, Code Engine will take your source-code, combine it with a supported runtime environment (a "buildpack"), and then create and run the container for you.
There is no need to worry about the underlying infrastructure—Code Engine takes care of all the cluster management, including provisioning, configuring, scaling, and managing servers.
Code Engine is completely integrated into the IBM Cloud and its full breadth of services. For example, logging and monitoring “comes included” through the use of IBM Cloud® Log Analysis with LogDNA and IBM Cloud® Monitoring with Sysdig.
Only pay for what you use
Depending on the load, Code Engine automatically scales your containers up or down, and that includes scaling to zero, ensuring that you only pay for the resources you actually use.
Based on open source
Ready to give it a try? Head on over to the “Getting started” section of our documentation.
Be sure to try IBM Cloud Code Engine out today (it’s completely free while in beta).
