Reflecting on the year 2023, it's evident that it has been a groundbreaking year for us at CloudBees. We've made significant strides in our product offerings and further established ourselves as a leader in the Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) technology landscape.

Scaling with Ease: CloudBees CI with HA/HS

One of our most noteworthy accomplishments this year has been the launch of CloudBees CI with High Availability (HA) and Horizontal Scaling (HS). This update, the most significant for Jenkins in over a decade, allows organizations to scale their Jenkins infrastructure with little to no downtime. Our innovative approach to software delivery ensures smooth, stable CI/CD processes, enabling businesses to adapt their infrastructure as they grow.

Accelerating Builds: Workspace Caching

This year, we also introduced Workspace Caching to dramatically reduce build times for complex or large-scale builds. This feature allows for the reuse of previously built workspaces in subsequent builds, resulting in faster build times and cost savings. It's an ideal solution for organizations looking to optimize their development cycles.

Enhancing Visibility: Pipeline Explorer

We launched the Pipeline Explorer this year, a feature designed to provide comprehensive visibility into the Jenkins pipeline. With this tool, it's easy to track project health, build status, duration, and other essential data points. By centralizing all aspects of a project, we're enhancing the efficiency of development teams.

Recognition and Success

Our commitment to innovation and efficiency was recognized this year when we were named a top performer in Forrester's Integrated Software Delivery Platform (ISDP) report. This honor is a testament to our robust capabilities in CI/CD, automated testing, and overall delivery pipeline optimization.

Streamlining Deployments: Argo Rollouts

Always striving for improvement, we introduced Argo Rollouts in CloudBees CD/RO – a tool that simplifies the deployment of cloud-based apps with minimal downtime. Integrated with Kubernetes, it offers a choice between canary, blue/green, or red/black deployment strategies, making it an invaluable resource for organizations seeking to automate and streamline their deployment processes.

A Global Journey: DevOps World Tour 2023

DevOps World 2023, the first in-person event since 2019, was a landmark occasion for the global DevOps community. This highly anticipated tour traversed major cities around the world, reuniting visionaries, practitioners, and innovators in a dynamic environment of face-to-face interaction. Attendees were immersed in a rich learning experience featuring expert-led sessions, hands-on workshops, and insightful panel discussions. But beyond that, these events stood as a vibrant celebration of the passion and innovation inherent in the DevOps ethos. The return of the in-person conference underscored the resilience of the DevOps community and its unwavering commitment to fostering collaboration and driving technological progress.

The Capstone: CloudBees Platform

The year culminated with the release of our comprehensive CloudBees platform. Equipped with advanced tools and capabilities, this solution is designed to optimize software development processes for organizations of all sizes.

In conclusion, 2023 was indeed a remarkable year for us at CloudBees. We've demonstrated our commitment to providing efficient, innovative, and scalable software delivery solutions through the introduction of a range of powerful new products. As we look to the future, we're excited about what's to come and how we'll continue to lead in our field.
