Smart Business Development and Test on the IBM Cloud (also known as simply Developer Cloud) is now available as a public beta.
Some of you may recall that it was announced earlier in the year as a US-only, invitation-based Technology Preview. The system has matured substantially since then, and as a beta, is now publicly available on the first-come, first-served basis.Â It also runs the same code as the IBM Internal Cloud environment.
The beta features IBM Software Delivery Services (SDS). SDS is designed to accelerate development and test cycles, and allow users to enjoy the benefits of the cloud directly from their application development and test environments. Images of key pre-configured IBM Software products (such as DB2, WebSphere, Informix, and Rational) are included in SDS, allowing users to experience these products with one mouse click, eliminating the need to download, install, configure and manage them. Â
To tell you more about the beta, our plans, as well as to hear your feedback, you're invited to an open webinar, which will take place on Friday, October 30th, at 12 noon Eastern Time / 9am Pacific.
