|IBM Cloud news|
- I always recommend to regularly go over the "What's new in IBM Cloud" page in the IBM Cloud docs.
- Something announced this week is a major expansion to IBM cloud capabilities and availability zones. It includes the option to run Docker containers on a Kubernetes cluster with worker nodes distributed across different zones.
- Several new IBM Cloud solution tutorials were added and some updated. Check out the one on how to move a VM-based application to containers on Kubernetes and best practices on how to organize users, teams and applications. I also recommend the tutorial describing how to build a database-driven Slackbot. Last but not least, to analyze traffic to your GitHub repositories read the tutorial on combining serverless technology and Cloud Foundry for data analytics.
- Db2 on Cloud has extended its federation support to non-SSL connections. Several Db2-based data sources can be integrated and queried.
- Do you know that with a recent update to the IBM Cloud CLI (command line interface) the CLI command changed to "ibmcloud"? No worries, the old "bx" is still supported.
- I recommend taking a look at current capabilities of IBM Cloud Key Protect, IBM Cloud App ID and IBM Cloud Activity Tracker. They provide some essential security features and have been enhanced over the past weeks.
