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.
Google Cloud is delivering to enterprises a secure, open, intelligent and transformative enterprise cloud platform. Anthos, a hybrid and multi-cloud platform, is built on open source technologies pioneered by Google Cloud and enables consistency between on-premise and cloud environments.
Together, Google Cloud and CloudBees are helping to accelerate application development and strategically enable businesses with transformational technologies like continuous delivery automation, service mesh, containers and microservices.
CloudBees and Google Cloud have a deep commitment to open source. CloudBees has been one of the leading companies to support the Jenkins and Jenkins X projects, and Google Cloud is a key leader for projects like Kubernetes and Tekton. Both companies believe that open source is the future of application development and the long-term success of the public cloud.
In addition, CloudBees and Google Cloud were founding members of the newly formed Continuous Delivery Foundation(CDF), an open source foundation that fosters vendor-neutral collaboration between the industry’s top developers, end users and vendors to further continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) best practices and industry specifications.
“Developers need to build and run applications in a manner that best suits their business, regardless of whether the app will live on-prem or in the cloud. Increasingly, this means adopting a hybrid approach with Anthos, which allows developers to run critical applications in the cloud without entirely eliminating their on-premises infrastructure,” said Rayn Veerubhotla, Director of Hybrid Cloud Partnerships at Google Cloud. “We’re delighted to expand our partnership with CloudBees to accelerate application development in hybrid and public cloud environments.”
The companies are using transformational technologies like Jenkins X, Kubernetes and Tekton to create a unified, end-to-end software delivery system.
Earlier in the year, CloudBees announced the availability of CloudBees Jenkins Distribution, a certified distribution of open source Jenkins, in the GCP Marketplace.
On Thursday, August 15, at DevOps World | Jenkins World, Dave Stanke, developer advocate for Google Cloud Platform, will deliver a keynote titled, So Long, Sheepdog: Towards a Cloud Native CI/CD, where he will review the hallmarks of a healthy DevOps practice and describe how to achieve key capabilities across a range of strategies, from incremental modernization of established systems to the brave new world of a greenfield, cloud native CI/CD platform.
“Our partnership with Google Cloud brings amazing new capabilities to application developers that want to accelerate application development in a modern hybrid environment,” said Francois Dechery, chief strategy officer, CloudBees. “Meanwhile, enterprises will be able to modernize applications on-premise or in the cloud with Anthos using existing skills and a consistent platform to get products to market faster, and maximize resource utilization.”
