IBM has announced the new container services in its cloud platform Bluemix to increase the speed and reduce the complexities of the services.These services can help developers in building and manage more secure and cognitive apps.The container-based services are available on the IBM Cloud, this service basically uses kubernetes- it is an open source container with Docker engine.
“Building microservices with containers helps developers to do what they do best – invent – by creating and stitching together different services that work in tandem,” said Jason McGee, IBM Fellow, VP, IBM Cloud. “Our service does this in a simple, straightforward way by using Kubernetes to automate critical parts of an app’s environment, while giving developers the ability to build in cognitive intelligence, blockchain, and Internet of Things services.”
Key features added to the IBM Bluemix container service are:
Fully-managed and highly available Kubernetes clusters
Completely native Kubernetes APIs
The choice to store and access data
Flexible isolation and capacity controls
Built-in security scanning
Automatic load balancing
A comprehensive view and analysis of each container cluster’s performance metrics
An open, standardized platform
Rapid access to cloud services
Over 150 tools, Services for data analytics, APIs, mobile Watson, security blockchain and IoT and much more are featured in the cloud platform.
