What are Bluemix services?
Services are the building blocks of web and mobile apps. A service is simply a cloud extension that is hosted by Bluemix. The service provides functionality that is ready for use by your app's running code.
Bluemix simplifies your use of services by provisioning new instances of the service and binding those service instances to your app. Bluemix handles the management of the service automatically, so you can focus on building outstanding web and mobile apps. For all available services in Bluemix, see the Bluemix catalog.
