These short videos provide a quick overview of how to get started deploying apps to WebSphere Liberty or traditional WebSphere in the cloud. If you want to develop and deploy a Java app without worrying about managing and configuring the server, Liberty for Java in Bluemix is what you’re looking for. But, if you want more control over your WebSphere servers, for example in a devOps pipeline, WebSphere in the cloud gives you a hosted instance of WebSphere (Liberty or traditional) that you manage and customize.
The videos briefly describe how to:
- Create an instance of WebSphere in the cloud to which you can deploy applications.
- Connect to your instance of WebSphere in the cloud using a secure Virtual Private Network (VPN). This enables you to configure the server and deploy your applications to it.
- Configure the server to have a public IP address so that your deployed applications are accessible to the public.

Installing and setting up the VPN for WebSphere in the cloud
How to get the VPN client, configure it, and launch it so that you can access your instances of the WebSphere service and access the graphical administration user interfaces (administrative console for traditional WebSphere Application Server; Admin Center for WebSphere Liberty):
Giving your WebSphere in the cloud app a public IP address
How to request, open, and configure a public IP address for the cloud service so that external users outside of the VPN can access your web applications that are running in the cloud:
