CloudBees Announces the Industry’s Only Unified Continuous Delivery Platform that Meets the Growing Enterprise Requirements of DevOps Teams

CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise provides continuous delivery at enterprise scale across all environments, from legacy to container-based technology

SAN JOSE, CA. – February 22, 2017 – CloudBees, Inc. , the hub of enterprise Jenkins and DevOps, today announced the availability of CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise to help enterprises accelerate software delivery and meet the rapidly growing volume of software development.

Today every company in every industry is dependent on software to support strategic initiatives and competitive differentiation. To support this business imperative, IT departments are adopting continuous delivery and automating software pipelines to accelerate and scale their software development and delivery across all environments – including on-premise, cloud and mobile. This means that continuous delivery platforms are now business-critical and need to be scalable, secure, stable and reliable. CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise is designed to address these enterprise requirements.

This new offering from CloudBees provides everything needed by modern software organizations to streamline a mature continuous delivery process. It is based on the market-leading Jenkins software and runs on the only architecture purpose-built for modern DevOps teams.

CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise provides value for DevOps teams and ultimately to the business via:

  • Enterprise manageability and operations capabilities to enable teams to quickly distribute, set up and share project assets and infrastructure

  • Enterprise security with user management, authentication and access control

  • Docker containers to enable CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise to be deployed on native and virtualized environments, as well as on private and public clouds

  • Ability to run on your platform of choice, including Amazon Web Services, Red Hat OpenStack Platform, VMware vSphere and Red Hat Enterprise Linux

  • A highly-scalable cloud-native, elastic architecture that can scale from one project up to thousands of concurrent projects, each of which can be spun up in minutes

  • High availability and redundancy

  • Lower infrastructure costs through dynamic allocation of appropriate resources, providing a high-density and very efficient use of infrastructure

  • CloudBees Assurance Program, providing a tested and verified CloudBees Jenkins Distribution to ensure safe, stable operation and boring, no-risk upgrades

The Platform for High-Velocity Software Delivery
CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise enables organizations to get started with new teams and applications in minutes, thanks to a fully self-service and elastic platform.

“High-performing DevOps organizations are already delivering changes to production environments across an automated tool chain at an ever-increasing velocity,” wrote Forrester analysts Robert Stroud and Eveline Oehrlich. “Emerging business demands and technologies such as containers and microservices are further revolutionizing software development and delivery practices.”1

Most continuous delivery solutions focus on a specific technology stack or process, leading to the deployment of multiple competing or overlapping solutions that do not offer holistic support of the entire IT delivery processes across an enterprise. In contrast, CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise leverages Jenkins’ 1,200+ extensions and is the only solution on the market that makes it possible for enterprises to have a unified view across their entire software portfolio, from legacy applications to leading-edge, cloud-based microservices, enabling them to evaluate how teams are progressing in their adoption of DevOps, continuous delivery and ultimately time-to-market goals.

As companies adopt continuous delivery they come to realize that if their software delivery environment goes down they are unable to push any changes to production, which can have a serious financial impact. Thanks to its fully fault tolerant architecture and rock-solid certified Jenkins distribution, CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise aggressively reduces potential downtime.

“As organizations drive continuous delivery and DevOps transformations more deeply from a few teams to enterprise-wide roll-outs, they need a platform that makes it possible for them to not only accelerate software delivery but gain the reliability, upgradeability, scalability and maintainability that become increasingly critical at scale,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO and co-founder of CloudBees. “CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise is the only continuous delivery platform today that is ready for enterprise scale and works in the same unified and consistent way across a number of technologies and platform environments.”

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