Solve real problems with easy-to-use journeys
As summer is heating up, so is open source at IBM. Some highlights of the past month include:
* We've launched a new website, IBM Code. On the site, everything you need to solve real problems is compiled into a Journey: architecture diagrams, one-click deployment Git repos, and pointers to essential docs. We currently have about 16 journeys and add new ones weekly. Topics include serverless computing, chatbots, cognitive apps, IoT, Swift, and more. Check out all the journeys.
* IBM, Google, and Lyft give microservices a ride on the Istio Service Mesh. You read that right. IBM, Google, and Lyft partnered to launch Istio, an open technology that enables developers to seamlessly connect, manage, and secure networks of different microservices - regardless of platform, source or vendor. The joint collaboration supports traffic flow management, access policy enforcement, and the telemetry data aggregation between microservices. It does all this without requiring developers to make changes to application code.
* IBM doubles compute power for quantum systems, developers execute 300K+ experiments on IBM Quantum Cloud: In May, IBM announced two new processors for IBM Q, an industry-first initiative to build commercially available universal quantum computers for business and science. The first processor is a 16 qubit processor that will allow for more complex experimentation than the previously available 5 qubit processor. The other processor is IBM's first prototype commercial processor with 17 qubits, making it the most powerful quantum processor created to date by IBM.
