IBM XPages on Bluemix: XPages NoSQL Database Part I - Create an XPages NoSQL Database service instance

In the upcoming blog post I will go through the different steps regarding how to create/deploy an (existing) XPages application to the Bluemix environment. In this blog post I will show the first step, creating an XPages NoSQL database service instance.
IBM XPages NoSQL Database for Bluemix is a service that adds a fully provisioned Domino database to your XPages application. You can use the IBM Bluemix dashboard or the Cloud Foundry command line tool to create an application and bind an XPages NoSQL Database to it or you can deploy an existing XPages application to Bluemix.
