IBM developers have ported Swift to LinuxONE and contributed code back to the community. As a result, app developers can now try out our Swift 3.0 beta on LinuxONE. We expect to have a production ready Swift 3.0 on LinuxONE in-line with the upcoming community delivery. We are committed to continue to work with the community to make Swift on LinuxONE a best-of-breed implementation of the language.
Because the end-to-end application is written in a single consistent language, its components can be placed in a fit-for-purpose fashion within the hybrid cloud. As such, developers can more easily place components of the application where it makes most sense when optimizing for performance, availability and security.
