“Enterprise demand for Jenkins-based, on-premise shared services guided our development of Private SaaS Edition,” said Harpreet Singh, vice-president of products, CloudBees. “Private SaaS Edition gives enterprises the ability to run an internally-managed Jenkins as a Service on the Red Hat OpenStack Platform. With CloudBees and Red Hat, IT teams gain the ability to provision and deploy Jenkins in minutes and scale resources up and down, as needed. Accelerating software delivery just got a whole lot easier.”
