I haven’t posted in awhile because I have taken a new role at IBM and helped lead the development of the new IBM Bluemix Container Service that allows you to run managed Kubernetes clusters on IBM.
For a little background, IBM has introduced a managed Kubernetes Service, for more information please read the announce post here.
Cabin is a pretty cool mobile app that lets you manage your Kubernetes cluster through your Android or iPhone.
Following up from my previous post, Canonical recently dropped support for lucid64 which is Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. This affects Cloud Foundry as lucid64 is the basis for most buildpacks. In Cloud Foundry lucid64 is being phased out for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS which is known as cflinuxfs2 in Cloud Foundry.
Getting stacks in org email@example.com / space dev as firstname.lastname@example.org... OK name description lucid64 Ubuntu 10.04 cflinuxfs2 Ubuntu 14.04.2 trusty The PHP buildpack will take the default system buildpack and right now in Bluemix it is lucid64.
With the recent shooting in South Carolina in reminds us that criminal’s can and will continue to harm people. They seem like random acts to most of us but to a criminal the acts make sense to them? No one can answer this question except the criminal. To peer inside a criminal’s would be next to impossible but what if there existed another way to peer inside their mind’s? This could be used to try to identify patterns or personality traits that exist.
This is a follow up post to a previous post on Deploying your Meteor app to Cloud Foundry and Bluemix. In this post we went through how to deploy a Meteor app to Cloud Foundry and Bluemix. In this post we will be going through the same thing except in a video format. Check out the video below.
I would love to hear your feedback and any suggestions you have, please reach out to me on Twitter @jsloyer.
I heard about Meteor mid-2014 but it peaked my interest last week when I was at a customer and a developer at the customer was building a Meteor app and they were asking how to run it on Bluemix.
Recently the company that owns development for Ubuntu (Canonical) just announced it is dropping support for lucid 64 which is Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. What does this mean for Cloud Foundry and the community buildpacks?
Well nothing really but there is a couple gotcha’s you should know about.
I have seen issues with the following buildpacks, this is not a comprehensive list but the ones I at least know about.
PHP - https://github.
This is a part two post following up on my earlier post on Zero Downtime Deployment with the CF Autopilot Plugin. I highly encourage you to read the first part before reading this post but if you are lazy I will go over the high level concepts here.
Overview of Part 1 (Quick Refresher) In part 1 we went over what a zero downtime deployment is and why it is in important.
I recently wrote a blog post on what a zero downtime deployment is, why it is important, and how to perform one. I am now posting a video on the same topic so you can learn about a zero downtime deployment by watching a video instead.
If you prefer the tutorial and text instructions please check out Zero Downtime Deployment with the CF Autopilot Plugin.

As announced yesterday, IBM has formed a partnership with Box.com, a partnership that includes the integration of Box into the Bluemix catalog. With its REST-based Content and View APIs, embedding enterprise-grade file storage into your app and enabling file sharing among your users has never been simpler.
To help you on your way to becoming a file-sharing guru, Bluemix developer advocate Jake Peyser and I have built a sample app that you can leverage as you begin to explore the possibilities of the Box.
Zero down time deployments are a must for any Internet app running at scale. Without the use of zero down time deployments, you would have to take down your application even just for a fraction of a second but in that fraction of a second you could lose a transaction or a purchase from a customer. This is not acceptable anymore. Some people like to call these apps cloud based apps, which I think is fine, but I’d rather call them Internet scale or born on the cloud apps.
