AT AWS RE:INVENT 2013, LAS VEGAS - November 12, 2013 - CloudBees, Inc., the continuous delivery Platform as a Service (PaaS) leader, today announced integration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Beanstalk. Now, developers can utilize CloudBees to accelerate the development process, then immediately deploy applications onto AWS Elastic Beanstalk. The service, available immediately, allows developers to take full advantage of the continuous integration features of the CloudBees Platform while offering a choice of deployment options. The combination of CloudBees and AWS makes it easy for Elastic Beanstalk users to keep their applications in a release-ready state at all times and to continuously deliver application updates.
The CloudBees Continuous Delivery Platform provides a set of high-performing, cloud-based development services, including continuous integration (CI) based on Jenkins — the world’s most popular continuous integration server. The CloudBees Platform provides the industry’s broadest set of continuous deployment options including CloudBees’ own runtime service, as well as AWS Elastic Beanstalk, CloudFoundry.com and Google App Engine.
