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
