IBM Rolls out new Bluemix Cloud Capabilities

IBM rolled out a number of new services on its Bluemix cloud development platform.

Bluemix, which was IBM launched last year as part of a $1 billion investment to boost its cloud activities, now has over 100 services in its catalog for developers. Bluemix enables developers to mix and match different services and tools that best fit their strategy.

The new tools include:

  • Bluemix API Management allows developers to rapidly create, deploy, and share large scale APIs and provides a simple and consumable way of controlling critical APIs not possible with simpler connector services.
  • New mobile capabilities available on Bluemix for the IBM MobileFirst Platform, which provide the ability to develop location-based mobile apps that connect insights from digital engagement and physical presence. 
  • Public availability of the .NET Runtime (preview) in IBM Bluemix and open sourcing of .NET Buildpack that grants developers in any Cloud Foundry based environment the ability to leverage Microsoft's development capabilities, making it easier to integrate multiple cloud workloads.
  • Namara.io platform by ThinkData Works aggregates and catalogues available open data into a single portal, providing businesses, developers, and citizens with API access to high value information.
  • Cupenya Insights provides an analytics foundation that allows developers to connect and monitor business activities across several Bluemix applications, define key performance indicators and receive performance overview of the entire business process or supply chain.
  • flowthings.io by Flow Corporation collects real-time data and provides complex event processing, and data delivery that makes it easier to integrate applications with almost any software or device in the Internet of Things space.
  • Reappt from Push Technology delivers data at unmatched scale and speed over the Internet to give your apps a performance edge.

IBM also announced support for the expansion of independent Cloud Foundry Dojos.  The company is establishing the first IBM Cloud Foundry Dojo in Raleigh, NC. The IBM Cloud Foundry Dojo will be a physical place open to all developers where IBM will help accelerate skills on the Cloud Foundry Code base and mentor developers to dramatically increase the number of code committers to Cloud Foundry.
