Kong announced Kong Konnect Dedicated Cloud Gateways, the simplest and most cost-effective way to run Kong Gateways in the cloud fully managed as a service and on enterprise dedicated infrastructure.
CloudBees announced a partnership with Atos and VMware surrounding a solution to help customers adopt DevOps best practices at scale on Atos’ recently announced Atos Digital Hybrid Cloud (DHC) powered by VMware Tanzu and CloudBees cloud native continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) enterprise solution.
With the adoption of this service offering, customers gain greater business agility, scalability and reduction in IT investments needed to build and automate software delivery pipelines.
The solution provides an end-to-end CI/CD automation platform that enables customers to integrate diverse software portfolios, from traditional applications to leading edge applications relying on a microservice architecture. Atos, CloudBees and VMware combined provide a turnkey, highly secure, DevOps solution offered as a managed service.
“As forward-looking organizations continue to focus on digital transformation initiatives, they are increasingly seeking assistance from trusted service providers for the management of their DevOps operations,” said Francois Dechery, Chief Strategy Officer, CloudBees. “This partnership represents a true industry first. By combining the power of a large managed service provider and a leading global cloud provider with our CI/CD solution, we’re helping customers to more effectively and efficiently modernize.”
With the adoption of the solution, customers gain increased productivity by minimizing application downtime, manual intervention, do-it-yourself scripting and troubleshooting. The solution provides faster time-to-value and greater operational efficiency to organizations looking to reliably and securely automate application delivery.
Michael Kollar, SVP for Cloud Engineering, Atos, said: “Using our Atos Digital Hybrid Cloud, powered by CloudBees, organizations can harness the power of DevOps, to transform application development methods from a traditional approach to a model that leverages the efficiencies of the cloud and the convenience of a managed service.”
CloudBees, Atos and VMware offer a set of capabilities to organizations in their DevOps transformation journey:
- CloudBees Core provides a shared, centrally-managed CI/CD service with self-service capabilities for engineering teams. CloudBees Core has cloud native platform support for PKS.
- Atos Application Transformation Services help teams modernize applications, as well as the way they are delivered and managed.
- VMware Enterprise PKS is a turnkey solution that enables you to offer Kubernetes as a service with high availability, cluster scaling, health checks, self-healing and rolling upgrades.
“DevOps is an important new way to develop applications,” said Susan Nash, SVP, BD at VMware. “As it becomes more pervasive, many companies are struggling to try to adopt the DevOps culture, along with automating core software delivery processes. Atos is a digital transformation leader in cloud-based DevOps services, powered by CloudBees industry-leading DevOps solutions, all running on VMware’s Enterprise PKS. Working together, we are able to deliver a fully-managed software delivery solution that will enable companies to develop and deliver software faster, with less overhead and with far less friction.”
