How CloudBees Supports Open Source And The Community

CloudBees is fully-committed to supporting and contributing to the open source projects that provide value and advancement to users, customers and partners.

Key Memberships

In 2019, the Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) was launched operating under the umbrella of the Linux Foundation. CloudBees led the launch initiative, in collaboration with the Jenkins and Jenkins X communities, Google, the Linux Foundation and more.

The Jenkins Project

Jenkins® is the world's most popular open source automation server. With Jenkins, organizations can accelerate the software development process by automating it. Jenkins manages and controls software delivery processes throughout the entire lifecycle, including build, document, test, package, stage, deployment, static code analysis and much more.

CloudBees is the largest corporate contributor to Jenkins and plays a significant role in supporting the project. A number of key contributors to the Jenkins project are employed by CloudBees.

The Jenkins X Project

Jenkins X is an open source project that offers automated CI/CD for cloud native applications on Kubernetes. Now over a year old and under the auspices of the Continuous Delivery Foundation, the emerging interest and growing implementations of Jenkins X has developers learning more about this technology and what it can do for them. 

Jenkins X provides pipeline automation, built-in GitOps and preview environments to help teams collaborate and accelerate their software delivery at any scale.

The Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) serves as the vendor-neutral home of many of the fastest-growing projects for continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD).

CNCF description: CNCF serves as the vendor-neutral home for many of the fastest-growing open source projects, including Kubernetes, Prometheus and Envoy.
