IBM Containers Launch in London
New IBM Container Region within Bluemix
IBM Containers launched in the US South Bluemix datacenter June 22, 2015. Starting today, September 29, 2015, IBM Containers is now available in the London Bluemix datacenter. If you are new to IBM Containers, start here. However, if you are familiar with the Bluemix UI, using the CLI, and scalable groups, then we will navigate the Bluemix UI to leverage IBM Containers in London.
Selecting a Region
Log into Bluemix.
If your default region is US South, navigate to the United Kingdom region.
Click on the Dashboard link and then Start Containers.
Alternatively, you can use the CLI to log into the UK region. If you’ve already set up the required CLI components, logging in is this easy…
