Mobile Foundation can now be deployed on Kubernetes clusters

Note: We have simplified the deployment experience of Mobile Foundation on IBM Cloud Kubernetes clusters tremendously, while improving deployment times significantly. Please refer to the blog announcement for more details. With this announcement, we are deprecating the deployment option described in the blog below.

Deploy Mobile Foundation on Kubernetes clusters

As a Mobile Foundation user, you can now deploy Mobile Foundation, including the Mobile Foundation Server, Mobile Analytics Server, and the Application Center on Kubernetes clusters. The deployment package has been updated to support Kubernetes deployment. You can download the deployment package CNL77EN from Passport Advantage (your PPA login credentials are required).

Using a Kubernetes cluster offers several benefits, allowing users to create their own customized infrastructure according to their business requirements.

Note: For customers using Mobile Foundation on IBM Bluemix, IBM Bluemix Container Service announced the availability of Kubernetes clusters on the IBM Bluemix Container Service.

Existing users of Mobile Foundation on Bluemix can migrate their existing Mobile Foundation server to Kubernetes cluster on IBM Bluemix Container Service. New users can deploy to Kubernetes clusters on IBM Bluemix container service. Follow the instructions in the tutorial to set up Mobile Foundation on Kubernetes clusters.

Inclusive terminology note: The Mobile First Platform team is making changes to support the IBM® initiative to replace racially biased and other discriminatory language in our code and content with more inclusive language. While IBM values the use of inclusive language, terms that are outside of IBM's direct influence are sometimes required for the sake of maintaining user understanding. As other industry leaders join IBM in embracing the use of inclusive language, IBM will continue to update the documentation to reflect those changes.
