I previously mentioned IBM Bluemix as a cool new thing that was open for beta testing, and as of today it is generally available. Bluemix is powerful development platform in a cloud, with many services already included, some IBM’s, some open source, some 3rd party. Some of the services could be used for free, some have a monthly payment plan.
One of these services is our favorite database, Informix, and can be found under the cryptic name of Time Series Database. It can be used as a standard Informix database, there are no limits to use only TimeSeries data.
There is also a one-month free trial, and I encourage all the developers, DBAs, project managers, decision makers to have a look. Find Bluemix at www.bluemix.net and the news of GA at the Bluemix blog here.
