PaaS Best Practices vendor profile – CloudBees

Unique Console Enables Quick, Easy Data Quality Management

Founded by Sacha Labourey CloudBees is an example of the type of cutting edge innovator at the ‘PaaS’ layer of the Cloud stack – Platform as a Service.

They are one of our keynote presenters on our upcoming webinar Agile Cloud – PaaS and DevOps Best Practices.

A review of what CloudBees offers is a great way to start profiling what Agile Cloud is all about, as they offer a number of very powerful features that demonstrate the core principles.

Fundamentally they highlight that where IaaS is about catering for the needs of the infrastructure managers, via virtualized servers and storage, PaaS is about catering for software developers, in this case offering the ability to build, run and manage Java applications in the Cloud.

Up until now the Cloud has mainly just been used to run applications once they were created, now it’s playing a much involved role in the creation part of the process too.

Continuous Integration

CloudBees offers a Platform Architecture that combines a number of PaaS building blocks along with Ecosystem, Runtime and Development Services so that they can be used to implement best practices known as ‘Continuous Integration‘.

A popular tool for implementation of Continuous Integration is Jenkins, which can be used to improve development for various other software packages; for example Drupal.

CloudBees boasts considerable Continuous Integration expertise, where the product can be used for ‘Jenkins Enterprise‘ and one of the core CloudBees team is Kohsuke Kawaguchi, the creator of another CI tool Hudson.
