IBM Watson Knowledge Catalog is now available in the Frankfurt data center. To sign-up or sign-in to Watson Knowledge Catalog in the Frankfurt data center, go to https://eu-de.dataplatform.cloud.ibm.com.

Watson Knowledge Catalog is an intelligent cataloging service that lets you bring together and prepare analytic and AI assets, including machine-learning models and structured and unstructured data, wherever they are located, to power your data science and AI projects.

Deploying a Microservices-Based Solution to Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment (CFEE)

With Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment (CFEE), you can instantiate multiple, isolated, enterprise-grade Cloud Foundry platforms on demand. Instances of the CFEE service run within your own account in IBM Cloud. The environment is deployed on isolated hardware (Kubernetes clusters). You have full control over the environment, including access control, capacity management, change management, monitoring, and services.

Nevertheless to say that you can deploy and run the application on CFEE for sure.

You can configure policies to control the actions that your users and Service IDs can perform in Container Registry.

Get More Control Over Cloud Computing Costs with IBM Cloud Virtual Servers


IBM Cloud virtual servers help lower the cost of cloud computing

A key factor in getting the most out of every corporate dollar lies in the way you manage your cloud deployment—matching your workloads to the right infrastructure configurations is key to keeping your cloud-related costs in check. At IBM Cloud, your need for new capabilities and pricing options that help you effectively manage and optimize your cloud infrastructure. 

Significant price reductions for IBM Cloud virtual servers—as much as 35%—will be made available in the coming weeks to customers worldwide. Simple and to the point, this is a huge advantage for those of you trying to offset the cost of server hardware and software to begin with. Besides our lower costs going forward, IBM Cloud virtual servers are still as fast and flexible as ever and can still be ordered and deployed in minutes—multi or single-tenant. They’re fully customizable with options to quickly scale (vertically or horizontally) as your needs grow, and you can also deploy to the same VLANs as your physical servers to spread workloads and maintain interoperability. New virtual server price reductions will be seen across our smallest size 1×1 servers all the way up to our 64×512 servers.

Reserved server instances and cloud subscriptions

IBM Cloud clients will be able to reserve capacity (a set of up to 20 like-sized virtual machines) in advance, with IBM Cloud Reserved server instances. Reserved server instances are available at the POD level for SAN-based storage in multi-tenant environments, are billed in monthly increments, and are ideal for your most sustained workloads. What sets IBM Cloud Reserved server instances apart? Unlike other providers, we guarantee the capacity—in a specific POD and specific IBM Cloud data center—for the term of your contract. And the cost controls you can gain are significant. Sign up for a one-year term and get up to 45% off list pricing or a three-year term for up to 60% off. You can also add IBM Cloud Subscriptions to pre-purchased reserved server instances for up to 72% off list prices. IBM Cloud Reserved server instances will be generally available mid-October 2018.

Suspend billing and one-minute granularity

You would agree that cost per minute is always better than cost per hour or month in PAYGO model 🙂

Transient server instances

Whether you call them “spot” instances or transient, it’s still all about having the ability to run your flexible workloads on unused capacity at a fraction of the cost. With IBM Cloud Transient virtual server instances, you can save up to 75% over standard hourly instances. This relatively new capability has been available on IBM Cloud balanced, memory, and compute public virtual flavors for quite some time and is now available globally across all IBM Cloud data centers.

Placement Groups

Placement Groups give you a measure of control over the host on which a new public virtual server is placed. A new “spread” rule option, which means your virtual servers within a Placement Group will all be spread onto different hosts. You can build a high availability application within a data center knowing that your servers are isolated from each other. Placement Groups with the “spread” rule are now available in IBM Cloud data centers worldwide. Once created, you can provision a new virtual server into your group and guarantee it to not be on the same host as any other virtual servers. And the best part? There’s absolutely no charge for using the Placement Groups feature. Placement Groups for IBM Cloud virtual servers will be generally available mid-October 2018.
