IBM Cloud - Structured Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and vote them if they matter to you

  1. Post an idea

  2. Vote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

NOTE: All IBM employees must enter Ideas through this Ideas Portal.

GZIP, Timezone and Database

I am evaluating Bluemix - Liberty of Java. It has many features but missing some essentials.

1. The JS and CSS are not served with GZIP compression, this leads 3X slower than a server which has GZIP compression. Just enabling it 3X faster loading.

2. Timezone, we dont have an option to change the runtime timezone, programatically we can change but it leads code modification.

3. Database the MAJOR issue, I am using Postgres you have provided Compose database service. But the problem here is the data transmission over the network. I 2 -6 seconds delay for the data transfer in the network. If you have some runtime or contianer to have Postgres in the same network where Java or any other runtime is running. Then we can avoid this time delay. 2 - 6 seconds is very huge delay. This is the reason i am thinking of moving out of bluemix. Other above issues can be fixed. But database service an essential one is missing.

Please look into it. Thanks!
