Are you searching for the fastest and easiest way to get started with using Jenkins as your continuous delivery platform? Jenkins is the #1 continuous delivery platform in the market because it connects with nearly every tool used by DevOps teams. With millions of users, a new plugin or integration is introduced every 2-3 days. This pace of innovation can help your team automate every application delivery pipeline task - that’s just downright awesome!
With more than 1,300 plugins, choosing which plugins will work for your particular need is a time-consuming project in and of itself. In some cases, there are multiple integrations with similar functionality and/or dependencies with other plugins.
Without some serious research, your team may face the risk of delivery delays and outages due to instabilities caused by incompatible plugins and regressions. How can you take advantage of all the great innovations from the open source community if Jenkins is unstable after the upgrade? And who do you go to when something goes wrong? Safeguarding against these risks by identifying stable releases, suitable plugins and proven best practices takes away from doing what your team does best - delivering quality software faster.
This is why we are excited to announce - CloudBees Jenkins Team. With this continuous delivery solution, CloudBees curates an expanding set of plugins and ensures that they and the Jenkins core are enterprise-grade and play well together for trouble-free upgrades.
