Hello Friends, welcome to Big4 Recently

AWS, IBM, Google & Azure – the Big4 Cloud Service providers. In this article, we will explore latest IBM Cloud Recently.

IBM Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment (Beta)

IBM Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment – an on-demand, single-customer Platform-as-a-Service on IBM Cloud

IBM is updating a fresh and exciting capability on the IBM Cloud as IBM releases Beta version of the IBM Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment.

This offering allows users to create and manage isolated Cloud Foundry environments for hosting applications exclusively for their organizations. It provides on-demand self-service provisioning, elastic consumption, and complete access to administrative capabilities. It can make seamless use of the vast catalog of IBM Cloud services, enabling customers to build complex applications with a wide range of services, including Watson AI.

Key features

This offering provides a range of benefits to Enterprise customers, including the following:

  • A tenant-specific Cloud Foundry environment with optional hardware isolation
  • Self-service on-demand automated provisioning directly from the IBM Cloud catalog
  • Ability to scale provisioned capacity on-demand, allowing control over environment costs and rapid business flexibility
  • Full administrative control over the standard certified Cloud Foundry platform
  • Integration with the full catalog of IBM Cloud services
  • Optional management of Cloud Foundry environments from IBM (soon to come)
  • Availability in many IBM Cloud regions for meeting geo-specific privacy concerns
  • Ability to run all Cloud Foundry application workloads on an infrastructure provisioned in the customer’s IBM Cloud account
  • Access to a one-stop-shop with the PaaS platform, underlying infrastructure, invoicing, and support

A new architecture for hosting Cloud Foundry

This service uniquely unites two powerhouse open-source projects: Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes. The enthusiastic adoption of Kubernetes in the cloud market merited a closer look at how customers could leverage both platforms (one focused on applications and the other focused on containers as the primary units of business function) to build coherent cloud solutions.

The IBM Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment offering has taken this approach by using the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service to host the Cloud Foundry PaaS environment in order to provide rapid deployment and management. Since these are both available to customers in the IBM Cloud, Enterprise customers have the ability to easily build complete business solutions by deploying parts to Cloud Foundry as well as Kubernetes. Together, these two projects provide organizations what they need most—rapid solution development with the flexibility to configure the hosting and control of their combined Cloud platform wherever and whenever needed.

IBM Cloud Foundry offerings

Prior to this service, IBM Cloud has offered Cloud Foundry PaaS capabilities in three distinct models:

  • IBM Cloud Foundry Public:Run cloud-native applications using Cloud Foundry for simple stand-up and powerful scaling and traffic management. Consumption is metered by the hour and is based on usage
  • IBM Cloud Foundry Dedicated:A hardware-isolated Cloud Foundry environment, managed by IBM, with limited administrative access for customers. This is provisioned by an IBM Cloud deployment engagement following an order made through a sales representative
  • IBM Cloud Foundry Private:A Cloud Foundry platform that runs in your data center on your infrastructure alongside the core IBM Cloud Private Kubernetes offering

IBM Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment now joins this list as a single-tenant environment that can be rapidly self-provisioned through the IBM Cloud public console, can allow full customer Cloud Foundry administrator control, has options for hardware isolation, and can access IBM Cloud’s full catalog of over 170 services, including the amazing Watson and IoT offerings.

IBM Cloud Certificate Manager is Now GA

Certificate Manager is a service to help developers and security admins manage SSL/TLS certificates for your Cloud apps and services. Upload your SSL/TLS certificates and associated private keys to Certificate Manager to store them securely. Configure a Slack channel or provide a callback URL to get notifications from Certificate Manager before your certificates expire so that you remember to renew and don’t experience outages. Use Certificate Manager APIs or Certificate Manager integration with IBM Kubernetes Service to deploy certificates for your apps.

Certificate Manager is GA in US-South and in United Kingdom (London). Certificate Manager GA terms can be found here.
