CloudBees Delivers First Develop-to-Deploy Platform as a Service for Java Applications

CloudBees, the innovation leader in cloud computing for Java, today released the CloudBees Platform, the first and only development-to-production Platform as a Service (PaaS) for Java applications. The CloudBees Platform includes the company’s two services, [email protected] and [email protected], both generally available today. With the CloudBees Platform, customers handle their entire application lifecycle in the cloud, from development to deployment—with no need to worry about IT matters such as servers, virtual machines, clustering or scaling.

Developers can immediately sign up for the CloudBees Platform.

News Highlights

• PaaS is the software infrastructure needed to run applications in the cloud—in simplest terms, it is middleware for the cloud. [email protected] provides the fully integrated development infrastructure while [email protected] provides the ‘application server’ in the cloud. With the CloudBees Platform, developers have everything they need to quickly and easily develop and deploy applications in the cloud—without having to purchase, configure and maintain hardware, and without having to program applications for a specific underlying infrastructure service (IaaS).

[email protected], in beta until today, has been used by over 500 customers. The [email protected] service features the popular Jenkins (formerly known as Hudson) continuous integration server. More than 300,000 Jenkins/Hudson build minutes have been logged on [email protected]

[email protected] integrates CloudBees’ recent acquisition Stax Networks, whose field-tested cloud application platform was the first PaaS for Java in the market. Customers can deploy their web applications to [email protected] today and run their applications seamlessly in a robust, cloud-native production environment. Over 3,500 developers have run more than 21,000 application deployments on [email protected]

• While [email protected] and [email protected] are optimized as an integrated platform, the services can be used independent of each other. [email protected] and [email protected] are based on open source software and open standards like Java EE, so that developers can use their existing expertise to painlessly move to the cloud.

• With a strong Java pedigree from JBoss, Macromedia/Allaire and Sun Microsystems, CloudBees supports all Java applications, including Java EE and JVM languages. The company will be expanding to other programming languages in the future and welcomes input from users.

Key Features of the CloudBees Platform

Scale DUO – Down, Up and Out. Optimally managing virtual machines.
Basic Multi-tenanting. The ability to have multiple customers share a service, securely.
Metering & Billing. The CloudBees platform easily handles multi-tenanting and can accurately bill by the minute.
Caching. [email protected] caches Jenkins/Hudson workspace data to optimize the Scale DUO of agents resulting in faster builds for developers.
Management. A robust back-end management system assures maximum uptime and availability.
IaaS-agnostic. [email protected] is portable and provides support for multiple cloud infrastructure services, giving users choice if they need to change infrastructure services in the future.
