We have had a flurry of news articles following up our GA announcement. GigaOm’s Derrick Harris mentions that presently RUN@cloud is the sole Java-only PaaS ready for public consumption (article here). Krishnan Subramanian of CloudAve believes that “PaaS is the future of Cloud Services” and CloudBees is preparing for the future by focusing on the enterprise developer (article here). (I will not cover all of them here :-) )
A number of accounts have been opened since our announcement - Matthias has written a blog on how “Apache MyFaces goes to RUN@cloud” - an interesting read! For those wondering if you can run Ruby On Rails on CloudBees - Michael has a knowledge base article here. If you just want to start with a Java application using the CloudBees SDK, this article will give you more information.
In addition to the GA announcement, we announced the formation of a Technical Advisory Board - with folks like JJ Allaire, Eduardo Pelegri-Llopart, Richard Friedman and Roman Stanek on the board. We are very excited to have them on board.
Finally, we have started offering a “Mastering Continuous Integration with Jenkins (Hudson)” training course. Courses are available in New York (Feb 22), Tokyo (Feb 22) and London (Feb 24) with more cities to be announced world-wide. More details at the training page.
January was certainly an exciting month in the beehive. More to come…
