Many types of web applications are running on the Internet today. There are also as many ways to manage and maintain the infrastructure that powers those applications. IBM® Bluemix™ delivers quick and easy cloud capabilities to deploy and maintain your web application, with minimal hassle and overhead. As you follow along with four lab-style scenarios, this IBM Redpaper™ publication demonstrates how to create and deploy a web-based collaboration application on IBM Bluemix. The application chosen for these scenarios is Etherpad Lite, an open-source web-based collaboration application. Each lab extends the functionality of the Etherpad Lite application and to give you a good foundation for discovering the additional powerful capabilities that are available on Bluemix.
The target audience for this paper is technical cloud specialists who are familiar with the technology of enterprise applications, but might be new to Bluemix.
