CloudBees invests in Kubernetes technology

Continuous delivery software services provider CloudBees announced that it is investing in Kubernetes technology across all of its business domains. As part of the initiative, CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise now supports Kubernetes, is working with Kubernetes talent and has become a member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).

Kubernetes is regarded as the de facto standard of container orchestration. The open source platform allows containers to be managed over multiple-cloud architectures. Users can deploy the same software server stack across public clouds like Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform with Kubernetes.

Among the Kubernetes talent CloudBees said it is engaged with include James Strachan, James Rawlings and Robert Davies. The company said its team of engineers have been involved in open source projects, including the Groovy language, ActiveMQ, Apache Camel/ServiceMix and fabric8. The team is working on developing a next-generation continuous delivery platform, which allows DevOps teams to deliver Kubernetes-native applications quickly.

DevOps is a term used to refer to the merging of software developers and operations staff. The purpose of bringing these two departments together is to deliver quicker time-to-market applications with lower costs and better quality. With the ability to integrate Kubernetes with CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise, IT organizations can leverage investments on-premise and in the cloud to run DevOps workloads. This will help pave a path toward Kubernetes adoption for IT organizations, according to the company.

CloudBees joined CNCF, a non-profit organization dedicated to the development of cloud native applications, as a way to demonstrate its commitment to Kubernetes. The CNCF is best known as the home of the Kubernetes container orchestration project. In January, the CNCF announced it had voted to accept Rook as its 15th hosted project, which provides storage for Kubernetes apps through persistent volumes.

“As enterprises evolve applications and IT environments to the cloud, CloudBees will be there to embrace them with a cloud native continuous delivery platform, built on Kubernetes,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO and co-founder of CloudBees, in a statement. “We are fully committed to Kubernetes on multiple levels: engineering, product, strategic partnerships. Kubernetes permeates our company DNA. Our flagship CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise will now allow enterprises to evolve their software development and delivery seamlessly across on-premise infrastructure, private and public clouds. As the industry embraces Kubernetes, CloudBees is the only continuous delivery solution that works across all computing environments.”
