Last time we spoke about Pivotal Cloud Foundry, which is dynamic PaaS offering from Pivotal. This also reminds me of CloudBees.
CloudBees initially provided a platform as a service (PaaS) solution to build, run, and manage web applications. The CloudBees PaaS was the first production PaaS to support the entire application lifecycle from development to deployment.
However in September 2014, CloudBees stopped offering runtime PaaS services in order to focus solely on Jenkins as a tool for continuous delivery both on-premise and in the cloud (it is deployable to Pivotal CF).
Today the products enable organizations to build, test and deploy applications to production, utilizing continuous delivery practices. Continuous delivery is important for companies who are transitioning to a DevOps environment.
For Jenkins engineers, earning certification helps you prove a level of Jenkins proficiency and skill. For managers, hiring Jenkins-certified personnel provides assurance of a documented level of expertise for roles that require Jenkins skill. Be a certified Jenkins expert with SpringPeople.
The Jenkins project is an independent open-source community under the umbrella of a non-profit organization that is committed to manage the one of the most powerful continuous delivery software. Jenkins manages and controls development lifecycle processes of all kinds, including build, document, test, package, stage, deployment, static analysis and many more.
CloudBees is an active participant in the Jenkins community and plays a significant role in moving the project forward. Jenkins creator Kohsuke Kawaguchi joined CloudBees and became CTO in 2014.
Today CloudBees Jenkins Platform is the industry’s most proven, fully featured technology platform for implementing continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD).
