CloudBees Honored as One of 20 Coolest Cloud Platform and Development Vendors by CRN

SAN JOSE, Calif. – March 4, 2016 – CloudBees, Inc. , the enterprise Jenkins company and continuous delivery (CD) leader, today announced that CRN , a brand of The Channel Company , has named CloudBees to its 2016 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list. This annual lineup recognizes the most innovative and effective cloud technology suppliers in each of five categories: infrastructure, platforms and development, security, storage and software. CloudBees is included as one of the 20 Coolest Cloud Platform and Development Vendors.

The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors are companies selected by the CRN editorial team for creativity and innovation in product development, the quality of services and partner programs and demonstrated ability to help customers benefit from the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and budgetary savings that cloud computing offers.

In addition to recognizing cloud technology suppliers for outstanding products and services, the 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors also serves as a guide for organizations to identify prospective channel partners with complementary offerings to their own.

“Cloud-based solutions have become an indispensable and fast-growing part of today’s IT infrastructure. The demand for solution providers who can deliver these technologies and services is now higher than ever,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “CRN’s annual list of 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors helps solution providers find and engage with the suppliers who can best support them, either during the critical transition to the cloud or in the improvement and expansion of their existing cloud offerings.”

CloudBees’ flagship product, the CloudBees Jenkins Platform, enables DevOps teams to readily adopt CD practices and accelerate the delivery of software to production. The CloudBees Jenkins Platform includes professional support for Jenkins and enterprise-level features such as: role-based access control, high availability, distributed team management and analytics. It also features integration with public and private clouds such as Amazon, Openstack, Microsoft Azure; and many popular tools such as BlazeMeter for load testing, Puppet and Chef for deployment/production monitoring and Docker container technology.

“We are honored to have been selected as one of CRN’s Coolest Cloud Vendors,” said Sacha Labourey CEO at CloudBees. “With the acceleration in cloud and continuous delivery adoption, more and more companies are looking for Jenkins-based solutions that meet enterprise requirements for scalability, security, high availability, manageability and commercial support.
