I came across this video a little while ago. It’s a two man attack helicopter team working a map on Battlefield. One of the characteristics of great teamplay is precise collaboration and teamwork.

BlueMix has integration with IBM DevOps services.

Takehiko Amano's Blog on Emerging Technologies.

If you are interested in emerging technology like PaaS (Platform as a Service), then you should take a look at BlueMix (code name) from IBM.  It is currently open beta. There is a good news for you. User registration is done in minutes !  Previously, it took about days.

The BlueMix is continuously evolving.  I got notice from developers that there is a feature to link to IBM DevOps services.

20140424 - add git integration

Simply, click “Add Git integration” button in your application page. This will create a private project in IBM DevOps Services.

Multiplayer gaming with IBM Softlayer – example of how precise and accurate the platform is


I saw this clip a little while ago. It’s of two team mates collaborating to win an objective, using the multiplayer platform that is based on IBM SoftLayer.

If you look beyond the graphics – what becomes apparent is the level of precision that the platform offers even while bringing together dozens of players and allowing them to collaborate to this level of accuracy and sophistication.

Even if you are not a gamer – i think you will appreciate the technical prowess that made this possible.
