In this lightboarding video, Amy Blea gives an overview of two types of traditional cloud storage: block storage and file storage.

What are the advantages of each? How are the two types of storage set up? Which type of storage should you use if you need low latency, high scalability, or the ability to share data with multiple users?

This video takes the advanced app you built in Part 2 and brings it into the world of containers. First you'll install the tooling you need for Docker and Kubernetes. Then you'll create a Docker image from your app and a Kubernetes cluster. From there, it's time to deploy and run your app. By the end of the video your code will be live on the web, running in a Docker container in a Kubernetes cluster in the IBM Cloud.

This video builds on the app you created in part 1, actually tying a web app to a NoSQL database hosted in the IBM Cloud. You'll run the application locally on your machine, then you'll deploy it to the cloud. All the code is available online, so all you have to do is follow along.

A look at the latest features of the IBM Cloud platform. Follow along with this video and you'll build and deploy an app, create a continuous delivery pipeline for it, and add a NoSQL database. All without writing a line of code!
