Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure

Cloud Infrastructure - Truly Hybrid.

The platform built to perform.

Cloud is not a commodity. And no matter what you call it, computing doesn’t come out of the sky. It comes from physical hardware inside brick and mortar facilities connected by hundreds of miles of networking cable. And no two clouds are built the same way.

SoftLayer gives you the highest performing cloud infrastructure available. One platform that takes data centers around the world that are full of the widest range of cloud computing options, and then integrates and automates everything.

Using CBA to help with Bluemix

Our technical team have been fully certified on Bluemix and IBM Cloud and are able to provide you with the recommendations to enable the utilisation of this platform and all of the elements available within your organisation. We are also able to assist with the development of Apps taking advantage of the cognitive APIs on Bluemix.

Developing Watson applications with Bluemix

IBM Bluemix® is the cloud platform in which you deploy applications that use IBM Watson™ Developer Cloud services Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). The Bluemix environment supports a variety of approaches to creating, deploying, and running applications. Your first step is to create a Bluemix account by Registering for Bluemix. You can then develop applications by using the Bluemix web interface, the Eclipse IDE, or the Cloud Foundry command-line interface.

The remainder of this page introduces these different approaches for developing Watson services applications with Bluemix. The approaches are functionally equivalent and work equally well, so choose the method with which you are most comfortable.

Using the Bluemix web interface

You can use the Bluemix web-based graphical user interface to create applications quickly by starting either with a particular runtime or with a boilerplate application. See Creating web applications in the Bluemix documentation for more information about the two approaches:
  • The links under the heading provide information about working with a runtime such as Websphere Liberty profile or the Software Development Kit (SDK) for Node.js. To create an application that uses a runtime, visit your Bluemix dashboard page.
  • The links under the BOILERPLATES heading provide information about creating appplications from boilerplates. The simple process lets you create and run an application by specifying only minimal information.

You must be authenticated to Bluemix to work with applications in the web-based interface. To log in to Bluemix, click the LOG IN button in the upper right corner of the page at console.ng.bluemix.net. Enter your Bluemix ID and password on the authentication page that appears.
