This lecture introduces IBM Bluemix as a Platform as a Service, discussing various use cases, and introduces Bluemix dashboard.
- Hi there, welcome back to the second part of the series of IBM Cloud: Bluemix Startup. So, let's start. Here in this part we are going to learn something more about Bluemix. As we have learned, Bluemix is a part of IBM Cloud. It is Platform as a Service. It has integrated DevOps with both Browser and Eclipse based tools.
DevOps simply refers to software development lifecycle, or SDLC. It covers all the process models and tools, like version control tools using GIT and other things that you will need throughout the developing process. So this is a link, console.bluemix.net where you are going to host your application on IBM Cloud: Bluemix. So this is simply architecture of IBM Cloud hardware.
IBM Cloud consists of IBM services, third party services and community services. As we have seen Cloud Foundry, where third party services and community services can be used (mumbles) There are free of limits because most of the services are open source. So we can purchase or get services from the marketplace, add to our application and use any container like docker and have database and link with other cloud.
At Bluemix it's a white thing. We can choose regions. Later we are going to explore the Bluemix site. Bluemix offers a platform services, Platform as a Service offerings, IBM and partner cloud services, and various other things. Here we get various run times and frameworks of multiple languages like Node.js, Java, Ruby, Python, even C Sharp, ASP those have a level.
We have various kinds of services Middleware, Application, Data, Operational, Mobile, External, and various other services have a level. We can also see code, see or edit our code, on Web IDE, using Eclipse Orion. Here are two major categories of IBM Cloud, the Bluemix. One is infrastructure and the other is platform.
Infrastructure we get compute, storage, network, security, containers, Vmware, these kind of services. In platform we get various services like IOT, Watson, which is the most attractive of them. We can choose our services and require a functionality from these two major categories, and add to our project. It is very useful and very cost efficient as compared to the scenario where we need to have our own dedicated service.
We need not to care about the server and the internet line and various other things, that is managed by IBM, that's why we are using Cloud. Our project would be (mumbles) enough to various high terabytes of space. We don't need to change the size. This is the link we have to follow. Search it on Google, automatically open the link.
Here you will get to see this home page. This is here, if you have not already registered with IBM Cloud, you don't have an IBM ID, just create one and get one for free for a 30 day trial. Or use your existing account. I have an account so I am logging in.
So this is my dashboard. As you can see IBM Cloud, this is my profile. And here in the left thing where there's options, containers, VMware, APIs, application services and various other things. IOT, devops, even Watson. So now I just click on IBM Cloud, this is the home page. Here we've got also options of catalog, docs, support and manage.
Just click on catalog. Here all the services and products for IBM Cloud is shown. Infrastructure and platform as we described earlier. We will explore all these things in later videos. So just simply explore what these, what are they. So these are a very large number of services offered by IBM.
Here you can see various tags, green, purple, the like, third party, community and IBM services. The likes have the ability to free service and trial period. We can use the like services. Just click on docs to get more documentation about the products if you want.
We can simply manage and get all things done. Just simply leave this. I'm clicking on manage, we can manage our application which is posted. Currently we don't have any application posted here.
