CloudBees, the Enterprise Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader, today announced that IDG’s InfoWorld has announced the company as one of 35 winners of the prestigious 2014 InfoWorld Technology of the Year Awards. Selected by InfoWorld Test Center editors and reviewers, the annual list identifies the best and most innovative products and services on the IT landscape.
The 2014 awards recognize the best hardware, software and cloud products and services in a variety of categories. CloudBees’ selection marks the third consecutive year the company has made the InfoWorld list.
In its January 15 announcement, InfoWorld said the 2014 list continues to illustrate technology’s move to cloud-based products and services that provide value for customers.
“CloudBees is a rich PaaS ecosystem that supports the entire lifecycle of Java development,” the announcement stated. “The biggest strength of CloudBees, however, courses through the pipeline of continuous delivery it enables. Privately hosted SCM and Maven repositories trigger Jenkins builds, which then push your app through staging and production for you. CloudBees is also adoption friendly, providing a large collection of ClickStarts that spin up all of your project scaffolding -- application, database, source repo, build pipeline, everything. Java and JVM-based derivations are CloudBees’ specialty, but it also supports PHP, Ruby, and Node.js projects.”
“To have our platform be recognized by InfoWorld as one of the top tools and technologies for the third consecutive year continues to validate the quality of our technology, our team and our application lifecycle approach to PaaS,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO, CloudBees. “The recognition strengthens our commitment to provide development teams with the best technology offerings for continuous integration and continuous delivery.”
Other notable names to make this year’s list include Amazon Web Services, GitHub, Dell, Hewlett Packard, Microsoft and Apple.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
