This blog is a guest post from Brandon West, Developer Relations Engineer at SendGrid…
SendGrid is happy to announce that we've partnered with CloudBees , a Platform as a Service (PaaS) provider that offers cloud-based services for building, testing and deploying Java web applications. As of today, SendGrid's email service is now part of the CloudBees Ecosystem ! CloudBees and SendGrid are both focused on reducing the friction that developers have to deal with when it comes to configuring and building out infrastructure so that they can spend their time building great things.
For those of you who aren't familiar with SendGrid, our service makes it simple to send email from any web application. SendGrid's cloud-based SMTP email infrastructure relieves developers of the cost and complexity of maintaining custom in-house email infrastructures. We provide reliable email delivery, scalability, and real-time analytics along with flexible APIs that make custom integration a breeze. Our service alleviates the email headaches for developers, allowing them to focus on making great apps.
If you've got a CloudBees account, you can now enable SendGrid from the CloudBees Ecosystem page with one simple click. SendGrid is a great choice for CloudBees customers looking to add a robust cloud-based SMTP email solution to their applications, and our partnership will make it easier than ever to do just that. If you're a working on a Java application and are not already using CloudBees, we encourage you to sign up for a free account and give it a try . If you build an app with SendGrid and CloudBees and want to share it with us , we may feature it in a future blog post. We’re excited to see what people build!
