Respective leaders in DevOps and cloud computing are partnering to provide end-to-end application development automation from source to production, enabling enterprises to build and modernize applications in a hybrid environment
DEVOPS WORLD | JENKINS WORLD, SAN FRANCISCO – AUGUST 14, 2019 –CloudBees®, the enterprise DevOps leader powering the continuous economy, and Google Cloud, today announced that the two companies are collaborating to deliver a modern DevOps platform based on open source technologies powered by Google Cloud’s Anthos.
CloudBees provides companies large and small with Jenkins-based continuous delivery solutions that are secure, open toolchain-enabled and scalable to transform software delivery processes across hybrid computing environments.
Spinnaker Support, a leading global provider of Oracle and SAP third-party support services, announced the release of its updated security and vulnerability management solution, now featuring seven-point protection for data, applications, and surrounding technologies. The updated security solution, which applies from initial onboarding and throughout the support lifecycle, now includes a virtual patching tool, powered by McAfee, that offers additional protection for customers’ databases.
SAN FRANCISCO, August 14, 2019 – The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, announced today that enrollment is now open for the new DevOps and SRE Fundamentals – Implementing Continuous Delivery eLearning course. The course will help an organization be more agile, deliver features rapidly, while at the same time being able to achieve non-functional requirements such as availability, reliability, scalability, security, etc.
According to Chris Aniszczyk, CTO of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, “The rise of cloud native computing and site reliability engineering are changing the way applications are built, tested, and deployed. The past few years have seen a shift towards having Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) on staff instead of just plain old sysadmins; building familiarity with SRE principles and continuous delivery open source projects are an excellent career investment.”
CircleCI is a continuous integration (CI) platform to help DevOps teams release code at a rapid rate by automating the build, test, and delivery process. Some of the known users of CircleCI include Samsung, Ford Motor Company, Spotify, Lyft, Coinbase, PagerDuty, Stitch Fix, and BuzzFeed.
However, CircleCI supported only macOS and Linux so far, keeping it out of the reach of Windows developers. But things are changing. Microsoft is increasingly embracing open source technologies. It’s embracing Linux. Linux dominates Azure cloud. Linux is now built into Windows 10 with WLS2.
GitHub Actions, the company’s workflow automation platform, has added full continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) capabilities making it a direct, and a more powerful, competitor to many CI/CD players.
With GitHub Actions developers can now build, test and deploy their code on any platform and run their workflows in containers or virtual machines.
