CloudBees and JFrog collaboration offers Artifactory as part of the Ecosystem One-Click Cloud Services!
It was just natural resault of the strong Jenkins - Artifactory integration. CloudBees chooses JFrog to provide the repository managment solution on the cloud as part of its Ecosystem One-Click Cloud Services!
CloudBees the Java PaaS innovation leader, recently announced a partner ecosystem that extends its platform to seamlessly support additional high quality cloud services. Developers now have access to multiple hosted services and can manage application build, deployment, management, monitoring, and data services from a single location in the cloud. The new ecosystem launches with five initial partners - JFrog, Cloudant, New Relic, SonarSource and Sauce Labs - with more coming soon.
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) is the software infrastructure needed to run applications in the cloud. In the simplest terms, it is middleware for the cloud. In order for PaaS's to optimize their usefulness, they need to enable services of all kinds, not just a vendor's own services. The new CloudBees ecosystem is the first for-pay, generally available platform that offers easy access to multiple services to build, deploy, test, manage and monitor Java web apps in the cloud. It also allows service providers to transparently extend their services to customers on one powerful, proven platform.
Developers can browse partner services from the CloudBees platform and activate them with one click. CloudBees handles the details of setting up the account with the partner, ensuring provisioning, and handling billing, so developers enjoy a one-stop shop for their cloud development and deployment/management needs. After activating services, developers can manage and monitor them directly from within the CloudBees management console.
Sacha Labourey, CEO and founder of CloudBees: "The CloudBees Ecosystem is a big step in our overall vision of making it easy for developers to focus on what they do best -- writing code -- rather than configuring, managing, and maintaining servers. CloudBees is enabling services of all kinds, giving developers a more robust, full-featured platform on which to build and deploy Java apps in the cloud. CloudBees is the first PaaS provider to offer an environment that is GA and where users can actually pay for services. It is not merely a trial of an alpha platform -- it's the real deal."
JFrog Artifactory Online is a cloud based Binary Repository Manager solution that combines the value of Artifactory Pro as a SaaS, its commercial add-ons, and 24/7 SLA-based support, so developers can easily manage all of thier build artifacts on the cloud. The service allows organizations to effortlessly set up their own private repository on the cloud and start using it in a couple of minutes. No need to customize a dedicated machine, set up HTTP access rules, install the software, configure common accessed public remote repositories, maintain and monitor the service, manage backups, and so on.
Shlomi Ben-Haim, CEO at JFrog: "We're excited to be part of the CloudBees ecosystem, as it really is a leap in the right direction for making development and deployment in the cloud extremely easy. JFrog's Artifactory Online SaaS solution serves thousands of users who can benefit from an even more powerful experience, now that the entire build and the CI environment are integrated as a SaaS on the CloudBees platform."
JFrog (http://jfrog.com) is the home of Artifactory – the world’s first Repository Management Solution. As the first company to provide the software market with a Repository Management Solution, JFrog has established itself as a technology leader in the industry and keep setting the standard moving forward.
JFrog's team envision a world where developers can openly and actively choose their optimal tools at any given moment. Therefore, JFrog strives to provide development teams with products that were designed to integrate with thier existing development ecosystem and help them avoid vendor lock-in!
CloudBees (http://cloudbees.com) is the only cloud company focused on servicing the complete lifecycle of cloud application development and deployment -- without any servers, any virtual machines or any IT staff. The CloudBees platform today includes DEV@cloud, a service that lets developers take their build and test environments to the cloud, and RUN@cloud, which lets teams seamlessly deploy these applications to production on the cloud.
CloudBees is also the world's premier experts on Jenkins, the most widely used continuous integration server. The company offers a Jenkins service as part of DEV@cloud, as well as an enhanced on-premise solution, Nectar, which is available as a subscription. Backed by Matrix Partners, CloudBees was founded in 2010 by former JBoss CTO Sacha Labourey and an elite technology team.
