What is Codename: BlueMix?
BlueMix is an implementation of IBM’s Open Cloud Architecture, leveraging Cloud Foundry to enable developers to rapidly build, deploy, and manage their cloud applications, while tapping a growing ecosystem of available services and runtime frameworks. IBM will provide services and runtimes into the ecosystem based on our extensive software portfolio.
In practical terms, this means that cloud applications built on BlueMix will:
- Reduce time for application/infrastructure provisioning
- Allow for flexible capacity
- Help to address any lack of internal tech resources
- Reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
- Accelerate exploration of new workloads – social, mobile, big data
When IBM envisioned BlueMix, we envisioned a system which would answer the needs and challenges facing developers while at the same time empowering and enabling businesses to leverage their resources in the most efficient way possible. And we wanted to create a system that could do this in concrete ways.
Here is a chance to try this out in a hands-on workshop and provide feedback on the BlueMix platform.
IBM is going to be hosting 100 days of Bluemix . Sign up today at a location near you and attend this event featuring IBM's platform where developers can act like kids in a sandbox - except this box is enterprise-grade.
