CloudBees Gains Market Momentum in 2011 - Celebrates 10X Growth and Receives Multiple Industry Awards

The Only Production Java™ PaaS to Support the Entire Application Development Lifecycle is Recognized for Industry Innovation and Enabling Java Developers to Take Control of the Development Process

WOBURN, MA. – January 25, 2012 – CloudBees, Inc. , the Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader, today announced the company grew platform services subscriptions by a factor of 10 in 2011, versus comparable 2010 numbers. This growth reflects the rapid acceptance and adoption of the CloudBees’ PaaS for complete, end-to-end Java application development and deployment.

Additionally, CloudBees received several high-profile industry awards at the start of 2012:

  • CloudBees was recognized by Network World as one of the 9 hot technology startups to watch in 2012

  • CloudBees received an honorable mention from Dr. Dobb’s for the Jolt Awards: Coding Tools

Last year was a year of firsts for the PaaS industry at large, with CloudBees leading the way:

  • In January of 2011, CloudBees became the first Java PaaS to become generally available, covering the complete Java application development-to-deployment lifecycle.

  • CloudBees further deepened its support for Java in 2011, announcing another industry first: the release of full support for developing and deploying applications using the Java EE 6 Web Profile .

  • The company also became the first Java PaaS to bring a fully integrated ecosystem of cloud-based services to its platform – the CloudBees Partner Ecosystem – which currently provides access to 10 SaaS and ISV partners.

  • CloudBees closed out 2011 by launching Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees to provide enterprise-class support and enhanced capabilities for the popular Jenkins Continuous Integration (CI) platform in an on-premise environment.

“We are processing 25,000 requests per minute for Web page loads. Thanks to CloudBees, I have managed to avoid hiring a full-time systems admin to support what would be equivalent to 25 in-house servers,” said Charles Teague, CEO, Lose It!, the popular weight loss application. “CloudBees is showing momentum in the market and is saving many hours, dollars, and effort for Lose It! We are realizing value in terms of lower infrastructure maintenance costs, productivity and access to the computing resources we need, when we need them.”

“The market is realizing the value CloudBees’ PaaS provides in terms of leveraging the cloud as a development accelerator and enabling developers to be more productive – eliminating the friction and ongoing hassles of maintaining infrastructure, and supporting the entire application lifecycle,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO and founder, CloudBees. “The ability to develop and deploy a production application – and an entire business – without the in-house infrastructure investment or ongoing maintenance hassles is what we brought to the market in 2011. It was truly a monumental year for CloudBees. We raised our series B round of funding, added horsepower to our executive team, signed on many new customers, and even lowered the cost of our PaaS development services, due to the efficiencies we have developed into our platform. The list goes on. In short, we have established CloudBees in the PaaS market, and I look forward to continuing our growth and success in 2012.”
