CloudBees Collaborates with Red Hat to Deliver Enterprise-Class DevOps Solutions for Red Hat Platforms

Collaboration enables DevOps teams to integrate with Red Hat JBoss EAP 7 and Red Hat OpenShift services

RED HAT SUMMIT - SAN FRANCISCO, CA. – June 28, 2016 – CloudBees, Inc., the enterprise Jenkins company and continuous delivery (CD) leader, today announced a collaboration with Red Hat to provide enterprise-class DevOps solutions. The CloudBees Jenkins Platform now supports integrations with both Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) and Red Hat OpenShift across the software delivery pipeline, enabling developers to build, test and deploy applications using Red Hat OpenShift and run on JBoss EAP 7.

As organizations adopt leading-edge technologies to build and deliver software, they need development and delivery platforms that map to new agile approaches. Developers can use the Red Hat command line interface (CLI) from within CD pipelines created on the CloudBees Jenkins Platform to interact with JBoss EAP and Red Hat OpenShift services. Customers using these combined solutions can also benefit from an increased number of supported Jenkins plugins available to them, allowing them to more easily manage large, complex Jenkins environments across multiple OpenShift clusters.

“IT organizations are transitioning to a DevOps culture and adopting continuous delivery as a way to accelerate software development and delivery. As they do this, container technology, microservices and cloud environments become increasingly important to their IT architecture,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO and founder of CloudBees. “The powerful combination of the CloudBees Jenkins Platform and Red Hat’s latest releases can empower IT teams to innovate and deliver software quickly and strategically with fewer disruptions.”

The CloudBees Jenkins Platform enables DevOps teams to continuously deliver software based on microservices and container technology with enterprise-class scalability, security and manageability. With new releases from Red Hat of both JBoss EAP and Red Hat OpenShift, enterprise Java is extended into this new world. JBoss EAP 7 also provides a bridge to refresh traditional Java EE environments and to build on technologies in use today.

“The primary driver for both cloud computing and DevOps is agility,” said Dennis Smith, research director, and David Paul Williams, research VP, Gartner Research. “DevOps is about life cycle speed (rapid testing and release) and cloud computing is about elastic scaling (appearing to have infinite infrastructure and quickly provisioning and deprovisioning infrastructure resources), both of which are capabilities provided by a successful IaaS/PaaS deployment. Thus, IaaS/PaaS is a perfect partner for the DevOps project.” 1

Red Hat also announced CloudBees as an inaugural DevOps partner for its new Red Hat OpenShift Primed partner program. The designation demonstrates the technical integration of the CloudBees Jenkins Platform with Red Hat OpenShift, providing Jenkins-based continuous delivery capabilities to OpenShift.

“The integration of the CloudBees Jenkins Platform with JBoss EAP 7 is helping to set our joint customers on a compelling path to a future defined by new application approaches such as containers, cloud and microservices,” said Mike Piech, vice president and general manager, Middleware, Red Hat. “This collaboration provides users with important tools that can help them succeed and modernize the IT department.”

This collaboration builds upon the Red Hat OpenStack certification for the CloudBees Jenkins Platform - Private SaaS Edition  announcement from the OpenStack Summit in April, which was  the first continuous delivery and DevOps platform to be certified on Red Hat OpenStack.
