Galvanize.it is a co-working space at 543 Howard Street in the SOMA district in San Francisco, the place to be for IT-entrepreneurs and startup companies. One of the most recent tenants is IBM's Bluemix Garage,
Bluemix Garage is a venue where "developers, product managers and designers can collaborate with IBM experts to rapidly innovate and deliver new cloud apps deployed onto Bluemix, IBM’s open platform-as-a-service (PaaS)."
And although the IBM Bluemix garage is located at the absolute center of today's startup market in San Francisco, it really is intended to be a collaborative space for developers from companies of all sizes, from the small startup company with grandiose plans to the established company with enterprise customers.
Because of its tight integration with the IBM Cloud Marketplace with a large number of hardened cloud-based software services and the Softlayer Infrastructure-as-a-Service with cloud-based data centers around the world, Bluemix makes it easy to write and deploy apps from the very small to the very large.
