CloudBees Announces CloudBees Jenkins Team, Combining Latest Jenkins Innovation with Enterprise-Class Reliability to Keep DevOps Teams Running Fast

CloudBees Jenkins Team provides verified Jenkins core and curated plugins, along with the expertise to keep DevOps teams focused on delivering great software

SAN JOSE, CA. – May 3, 2017 – CloudBees, Inc. , the hub of enterprise Jenkins and DevOps, today announced the availability of CloudBees Jenkins Team, a subscription-based Jenkins distribution with verified plugins and 24x7 CloudBees support. CloudBees Jenkins Team combines the best of Jenkins with the support and stability that software delivery teams require to get started with continuous delivery.

CloudBees Jenkins Team builds on the power of Jenkins to address mission-critical needs of modern software development and delivery. Both plugin and core updates are delivered via the CloudBees Assurance Program; a program that thoroughly verifies both the latest Jenkins core and a curated set of community plugins for interoperability, ensuring stability and a no-fear upgrade process. CloudBees Jenkins Team provides a tested and fully-supported Jenkins distribution for teams that require a stable, reliable software delivery pipeline.

IT departments are adopting continuous delivery to accelerate and scale their software delivery across the organization. Uncertainty and instability result in downtime that can impact the ability to deliver software. CloudBees Jenkins Team eliminates uncertainty with end-to-end verification of the Jenkins core and plugins, identifying relevant updates and security fixes. With CloudBees Jenkins Team, users are provided a robust Jenkins, less risk in the software delivery process and the assurance of the Jenkins experts at CloudBees to support them every step of the way.

Open source delivers fixes and features through frequent community-driven releases. Traditionally, teams requiring stability are unable to benefit from the rapid pace of open source. With CloudBees Jenkins Team, CloudBees provides monthly incremental releases to continuously deliver new features, security patches and bug fixes. Teams are able to achieve the speed of open source innovation with the confidence and stability required for the enterprise. Additionally, the solution includes 24x7 support from the Jenkins experts at CloudBees.

  • CloudBees Network and community – Users are able to find answers and resolve issues using knowledge base articles, diagnostic tools and a vibrant customer community

“Organizations today are adopting open source software in record numbers and receiving tremendous value from it. This is certainly the case with Jenkins. However, with open source software you rely on the community around it for support, which many times is not robust enough support for enterprises,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO and co-founder of CloudBees. “Now, with CloudBees Jenkins Team, we are providing the open source innovation that Jenkins users love, along with a verified, tested way to easily get it. Add in formal technical support, and we have just removed potential issues typically associated with open source offerings. Companies can now focus on creating innovation for their business, not maintaining their software delivery environment.”

CloudBees Jenkins Team is available now. All CloudBees Jenkins Solutions are sold as annual or multi-year subscriptions with licensing based on the number of users.
