To better align business and IT objectives, enterprise organizations should focus on the core "problems" that individual business units face today in driving out real consumer value. Until the roadblocks and inhibitors — and, ultimately, the resultant technical debt — are removed from the equation, large enterprise organizations will continue struggling to succeed ...
CloudBees unveiled CloudBees Core for Kubernetes Continuous Delivery, a new continuous delivery solution that organizations can use to rapidly create, deploy and manage cloud native applications for Kubernetes.
CloudBees Core for Kubernetes Continuous Delivery is built with Jenkins X, an advanced open source project for deploying modern cloud native applications and microservices to Kubernetes, fully leveraging Kubernetes for ephemeral execution of CI/CD pipelines. The new CloudBees offering builds on the success of Jenkins X, providing DevOps managers, application development leaders and digital transformation leads a richer user experience to manage and visualize teams, applications and environments.
“In their desire to fully embrace the benefits of cloud native architectures, organizations have been looking for a way to build and deploy cloud native apps using emerging best practices of empowering developers through instant previews and GitOps without having to learn the intricacies of Kubernetes,” said Christina Noren,CPO, CloudBees. “CloudBees Core for Kubernetes Continuous Delivery provides a streamlined path to the cloud, helping teams to manage their software delivery environments seamlessly without sacrificing the strength of an enterprise-grade continuous delivery solution.”
CloudBees Core for Kubernetes Continuous Delivery makes it easy for developers to build in the cloud, offering them a guided workflow and promotion of immutable releases through all of their environments. It gives developers the ability to quickly establish continuous delivery best practices by providing an opinionated workflow that leverages GitOps with environments managed as code. It also provides integrations to a curated set of open source projects of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation community around Kubernetes, providing a supported set of integrations and validated implementations for a dynamic ecosystem.
The CloudBees Core for Kubernetes Continuous Delivery solution includes a variety of key features that help organizations get the most out of their container environments. Key features include the following:
- Powerful CLI that manages pipelines, previews and promotions
- Quickstart language packs that enable users to build, configure and deploy
- Out-of-the-box integrations with best of breed tools in the Kubernetes ecosystem
- Manage environments as code with GitOps, which enable stress free rollbacks and version control
- Serverless Jenkins, which removes the Jenkins master as a single point of failure
- The ability to manage teams, applications and environments with a rich user experience
- Expert professional support
