Building on the recent launch of Public Bluemix in Germany, I’m pleased to announce that the Watson IoT Platform is now available in Public Bluemix in Germany, Frankfurt.
This increases the number of Public Bluemix locations that you can find the Watson IoT Platform to four – including the US (Dallas), UK (London), China (through 21Vianet) and now Germany (Frankfurt).
For those looking at data sovereignty, particularly in regulated industries where there are regulations governing where data can reside, this addition will give a great place to deploy and run an IoT workload in the center of Europe.
To access the Watson IoT Platform in Germany – simply change the region to Germany in your Bluemix account. You can then find the Internet of Things Platform in the Bluemix catalog. This will enable you to create a service where your IoT data is stored and processed within the EU.
