PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM's cloud development platform.
"Today's app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone," said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. "PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost."
Bluemix developers can easily implement crucial features needed in IoT such as remote device control, firmware upgrades and device provisioning. PubNub's data streaming capabilities are available to developers via 70+ SDKs allowing developers to connect, scale, and manage realtime applications and IoT devices. PubNub's realtime communication API includes presence detection, message storage & playback, stream syndication and data synchronization. PubNub will showcase its IoT node for IBM's NodeRed at Booth #620.
The IBM Cloud marketplace offers clients access to more than 100 SaaS applications, IBM's Bluemix platform-as-a-service with its suite of composable services, the powerful SoftLayer infrastructure-as-a-service and IBM's rich intellectual capital and deep industry expertise.

PubNub's globally secure data stream network allows developers to focus on app features and functionality, accelerating time to market while forgoing expensive and risky investments in homegrown communication infrastructure. To be made available through self-provisioning within the Bluemix Catalog, PubNub provides developers secure Publish/Subscribe messaging with � second latencies across 15 global points of presence and 99.999% uptime. PubNub's operational model guarantees no open ports on IoT devices, delivering secure communication through firewalls, proxy servers and over unreliable mobile networks.
