If you are interested in emerging technology like PaaS (Platform as a Service), then you should take a look at BlueMix (code name) from IBM. It is currently open beta. There is a good news for you. User registration is done in minutes ! Previously, it took about days.
The BlueMix is continuously evolving. I got notice from developers that there is a feature to link to IBM DevOps services.
Simply, click “Add Git integration” button in your application page. This will create a private project in IBM DevOps Services.
There are a couple of cautions of using this integration (at the time of writing this blog entry).
- It will create a project, but the application codes are not cloned into the repository, unless the application is created from boiler plate.
- You have to put your code manually (or add remote repository using “git remote add”).
- You need manifest.yml file to be created to use automatic deploy to BlueMix.
As for #3, I recommend to read this documentation at http://www.cloudfoundry.org.
For example, if you want to run the Node application with “app.js” as starting point. Then the manifest.yml should look like this.
--- applications: - name: nifty-node command: node app.js memory: 64M host: nifty-node path: .
That it ! Enjoy the application development and instant application deployment using IBM DevOps services !
