CloudBees CI/CD Powered by Jenkins X Announced
December 04, 2019

CloudBees announced a Preview Program for CloudBees CI/CD powered by Jenkins X, a Software as a Service (SaaS) continuous integration and continuous delivery solution running on Google Cloud Platform.

The new offering continues to build on CloudBees’ partnership with Google Cloud. The two industry leaders are dedicated to creating solutions that accelerate application development and strategically enable businesses with transformational technologies.

Continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) rely on tools largely built before new technologies like Kubernetes changed the game for cloud native app development. Utilization of new cloud native technologies present a significant learning curve for developers, and continuing to use traditional CI/CD offerings for cloud native app development is ineffective. Jenkins X, an open source project that is part of the Continuous Delivery Foundation, offers developers an automated continuous delivery solution to take full advantage of Kubernetes and the cloud native ecosystem without having to learn the intricacies of an entirely new toolchain.

CloudBees CI/CD powered by Jenkins X extends the value for enterprises by providing a SaaS environment for Jenkins X on Google Cloud. Using the solution, developers enjoy a full cloud native experience for the build-test-deploy lifecycle without having to devote time and resources to managing a cloud implementation. Additionally, CloudBees introduced a user interface (UI) for CloudBees Jenkins X. Now users have a choice to use the CLI or the new graphical environment, depending on which better suits their workflow.

Beginning today, users interested in trying CloudBees CI/CD powered by Jenkins X can sign up and be added to the waitlist for the preview program. This free program gives early access to users who want to influence and provide feedback on the solution before it is made generally available to the public.

“Developers want to have the flexibility to create great cloud native applications on a rich, robust cloud platform that they can trust,” said Susan Lally, VP of Engineering at CloudBees. “Using CloudBees CI/CD powered by Jenkins X, they get the best of both worlds. We provide a guided workflow to make software development and deployment simple. Building on Google Cloud, using a SaaS platform, removes all the friction and overhead of managing your CI/CD infrastructure, enabling developers to focus on innovation.”
