1 year, 9 months ago


The IBM corporation the other day made a decision to open access to the analytical platform of safety — IBM Security Radar. This step, according to representatives of the company, will help customers, partners of the company and normal developers to create user applications with use of opportunities of a platform and corresponding data archive on safety. The online site for specialists in information security of IBM Security Exchange is also started. Here developers will be able to create and exchange applications on the basis of technologies of IBM.

Thus, the corporation takes active actions for stimulation of cooperation of the industry and promotion of innovations for fight against cybercrimes. Earlier in 2015 IBM published more than 700 TB of data on threats on the IBM X-Force Exchange platform. Only in April more than 2000 organizations joined a platform. Thanks to open access to an analytical platform of safety and a data archive on threats, the companies will be able to exchange important information that will allow to resist to cybercrimes more effectively.

Computing chemistry — a modern method of receipt of the necessary chemical compounds from IBM

1 year, 10 months ago


The IBM corporation decided to use the resources not only for creation of cloud services and related products. The other day it became known that specialists of the company could develop a modern method of receipt of chemical compounds necessary to the person, having called it "computing chemistry". Ideally scientists want to achieve an opportunity to receive a chemical compound which properties are set in advance. Active work in this direction is now conducted, and the new method already helped to create polymer of new type — it stronger, than the bone of the person, self-repairs, its plus can be overworked without problems.

The technology appeared as a result of a combination of elements of materials science and opportunities of the cognitive IBM system. And the "computing chemistry" allowing to accelerate development of new materials with simultaneous modeling of the reactions leading to creation of connection with predetermined properties was developed.

IBM Watson will help to treat children with rare diseases

1 year, 10 months ago


The IBM corporation provided to the Boston children's hospital access to the cognitive IBM Watson platform. It is made to help physicians to localize rare species of diseases at children and to define possible methods of their treatment. At the first stage Watson will be engaged in different diseases of kidneys. For this purpose the system analyzes already now huge bases of scientific literature and the database of medical diseases which are in the cloudy Watson Health Cloud system.

The initial purpose — comparison of genetic mutations with diseases that, perhaps, will facilitate a problem of establishment of the diagnosis and search of a necessary method of treatment for doctors. In spite of the fact that diseases about which there is a speech quite rare, more than 350 million people suffer from them worldwide. And 50% of patients are children. Some of them, unfortunately, die even before setting of the exact diagnosis. The reasons a little, and the main — only a little bit of doctors possesses experience and knowledge, necessary for setting of the correct diagnosis.

Development of the DB service based on graphs: from a prototype to a reliable and scalable solution in a cloud

1 year, 10 months ago
The databoom service is cloudy backend for Web and mobile applications. It reduces time and reduces the cost of prototyping and applications programming due to simplification of data access. On the following videos it is shown how easily by means of databoom the Web application prototype is under construction.



Microsoft Azure allows to create reliable scalable applications surprisingly easily. If few years ago Azure meant Windows, then today Microsoft Azure is the fine environment and for Linux of developers.

The server part of databoom works under control of Linux, uses Node.js and native the modules written on C ++. Simplicity of expansion of virtual computers, balancers and other services under Azure allowed us to unroll a cloud solution rather easily.

Having begun with prototypes, our many clients continue to work with us, creating harder and harder applications for which questions of reliability, security and scalability are crucial. Therefore we selected Microsoft Azure.

As Cloud Foundry is developed

1 year, 10 months ago
CF community logoI briefly will tell about development process Cloud Foundry (CF), features of open source of model and a little personal experience.

In 2013 I became the active user of a platform when IBM started an internal beta of Bluemix, at the beginning of this year I took part in porting of Cloud Foundry on architecture of POWER8, and from the middle of October I became the member of CF core team, having passed CF Dojo. But about everything one after another.

I will not go deep into history or to explain that such Cloud Foundry, but here a necessary minimum of the facts. CF is Platform as a Service (PaaS) developed by VMWare and later the transferred Pivotal Software. The source code was open, now still there is a separate incubator of CF projects. A bit later Cloud Foundry Foundation which Pivotal entered, IBM was created, VMWare, EMC, GE, Intel, SAP, the present is included into it more than 50 organizations. Initially the platform was written on Ruby, later part a component were rewritten on Go.

We test a cloud platform of IBM on the example of a chat

1 year, 10 months ago

Recently I happened to get acquainted with the technician of IBM who told me about opportunities of rather new IBM Bluemix platform which has to facilitate the developer's life. On the example of an unpretentious chat I decided to verify this statement.



Background


Earlier my experience with a platform was close to zero therefore to understand a huge number of services of a platform, I addressed the acquaintance from IBM again. It seemed to me obvious to use the Message Hub service, but as a result it turned out that MQ Light will be suitable for a solution of our task better. Basic reasons:
  • rate in free 10 thousand messages a month
  • good scalability
  • simple in use of API
