Ease of Use
Services prebuilt for your use - IBM, Third Party, Community
DevOps tools to monitor, plan, deploy, and manage your apps
IBM secures the platform and infrastructure - leveraging experience with softlayer and proven on-prem security implementations
Provides you with the tools to secure your apps
Bluemix is built on top of IBM’s infrastructure as a service offering - SoftLayer. It embraces Cloud Foundry as an open source platform as a service and extends it with IBM, third party, and community built services.
Explain Diagram (verbs in blue - please use this terminology)
Start by Pushing your code through Cloud Foundry
Cloud Foundry interprets which language you’ve used and associates your code to the appropriate runtime - now you have a working app (layer above runtimes).
Your app can
Pull prebuilt services (IBM, 3rd party, or community built) in from the marketplace and utilize their functionality
Connect to traditional IT - aka “Your Systems” with a secure connector
Connect to other clouds that you utilize with a secure connector
All of this sits on infrastructure (networking, storage, servers) hosted by IBM Softlayer (IBM’s IaaS cloud offering)
Finally - when your app is built and ready to go, it can be accessed by anything with a web browser and a connection to the internet, a smartphone app (via the Bluemix SDK) to utilize backend services, or another type of app or system (via an API you create).
We’ve seen over 30,000 beta applications thus far and have spoken to numerous developers about the value Bluemix provides. We’ve learned that developers are joining for 3 key reasons (go through reasons on the page).
Rapid setup and time to production
Frequent releases - delivery of fixes or new functionality quickly
Integrating apps with on premise infrastructure
mention that JazzHub is powered by IBM Rational Team Concert
Main Point: Many software developers are building applications today for the cloud, web, iOS and Android and there is a new app-oriented culture…and as developers get more innovate and creative, the bar is raised higher and higher. And this app-oriented culture has its challenges.
Challenges of app-oriented culture and what developers need:
I need to keep my developers writing code for the business, not managing infrastructure [Eliminate drudgery for developers]
I am losing talented developers because they don’t have access to the tools they want to use [Provide open technologies for developers]
I am nervous we are spending time and money integrating things that should naturally fit together [one integrated solution]
My average developer has 250 open change requests from the business. [developers need the ability to experiment more]
I am not confident that the platform is secure as I integrate [developers need peace of mind]
DevOps Services (JazzHub)
Offers tools and processes to build mobile and cloud applications by enabling individuals and teams to plan, track, version control, develop and deploy software in the cloud.
Announced Feb 2014: now supports deployment of software to Codename: Bluemix runtime and is a premier DevOps Service for Bluemix providing a streamlined developer experience
A fully hosted Web IDE, task tracking, agile planning, integrated source control (Git or Jazz SCM) or connection to GitHub repository and auto deployment to Bluemix provide everything you need to develop and deploy your next app, feature or product quickly and with high quality
Provides free public projects and fee-based Private projects (free during Bluemix Beta), and enables fully browser-based development through built-in Eclipse Orion technology, and directly supports the Eclipse and Visual Studio IDE&apos;s.
Mobile Quality Assurance (Open Beta)
Announced Feb 2014: Now tightly integrated with IBM DevOps Services (JazzHub) to support agile mobile application development teams in their effort to continuously deliver the highest quality mobile software possible
When bugs and crashes are reported through tests run with IBM MQA, work items can be automatically created within a JazzHub project associated with the mobile app being tested.
In this way, IBM MQA and JazzHub deliver a highly optimized, cloud-based, collaborative environment for agile mobile teams.
Codename: Bluemix (Open Beta)
Announced Feb 2014: A comprehensive, cloud-based application development and hosting platform. It provides developers of modern web and mobile applications with:
Tools to author their web and mobile apps, and tools to make them available on the cloud
A wide variety of ready-to-use services (such as persistence, messaging, caching, analytics, etc.) exposed through APIs and transparently provisioned by the platform at run-time.
Developers can dramatically reduce time-to-value - organizations can dramatically reduce operational costs.
