CloudBees in PaaS THREESOME with Cloud Foundry tie-up
Java cloud caught in VMware love-in seeks 'other relationships' as well
Promiscuous Java-lover CloudBees has integrated its platform-as-a-service with VMware's Cloud Foundry, giving developers a simple way to use Jenkins continuous integration with VMware's well-developed PaaS.
The love-in means developers can use CloudBees' Jenkins-based Java development tools to perform build-and-test orchestration on their Grails, Spring, and Java projects before deploying onto CloudBees or an alternative PaaS.
Thursday's announcement of Cloud Foundry integration means developers can now choose from three different PaaS's to run on, including the aforementioned CF, along with Google App Engine, and CloudBees' RUN@cloud platform.
But CloudBees is not the only development cloud to have embraced Cloud Foundry – Bezos-backed integration service SkyTap got with CF last August.
What separates CloudBees from other PaaS's and development clouds is its bundling of development features such as Jenkins, making it an attractive online build environment for some developers, paired with its comprehensive support of Spring and Java.
The service's 20,000 or so users typically come to it after spending time implementing their own PaaS-like platform on top of Amazon's infrastructure-as-a-service cloud, the company's chief executive Sacha Labourey told The Register. "It typically takes a developer to ride in IaaS-land before they decide to get productive again," he said.
For this reason, the PaaS has been somewhat promiscuous of late, hooking up with Google App Engine several months ago, Cloud Foundry today, and with its eyes set on others for tomorrow.
When The Register suggested that CloudBees might like to hook-up with Engine Yard or OpenShift as well, Labourey said "we are very open to that type of relationship. We aim to offer choice to our developers, so you will definitivly see us offer integration with other PaaS providers down the road."
The service is available beginning today.
CloudBees is confident that developers won't catch any PaaS-transmitted fails from its love-in: "Cloud Foundry APIs are pretty clean, so we didn't face any big challenge when performing that integration," Labourey assured us. ®

:-) Ideally, jake, does El Reg work in the shade and the shadows for Us .... which I am sorely tempted to share and fully capitalise with a US rendition for an extraordinary quantum communication control system which monitors and mentors thoughts to us, of US, for Us .... and other wholly leading combinations of that Simply Complex Virtual Trinity.
Do you want some of that pollen for your bees, Sacha Labourey, for a new and surreal FlowUR Power with Universal Resources and Heavenly Assets .... which be specifically intelligently designed to create an Almighty Buzz in Angel Investment Programs and Venture Capital Projects with AI ProgramMING Protocols assuring Intellectual Property Virtual Protection and CyberIntelAIgent Security Servering? Or is it to be with IT Command and Control, a Stealthy APT Service App and Silly Unnecessary Networking Competition in the Gift of Others?
That choice be yours, for you and yours to make and take and share with El Reg commentards, both far and wide and near, high and low and all ports inbetween.
But there's absolutely nothing for anyone decent to worry about, but as for the rest, will they have everything to be constantly concerned is an APT Application of ProgramMING, methinks, with the beta crash testing of dummies in sweet sticky perverse and easily corrupted systems of virtually anonymous remote executive administration.
And yes, corrupt and perverse markets have every right and good reason to also be worried if they aint educated anywhere near well enough, nor be they SMARTR Enabled to Export Experts in IT for Global Command Head Quarters Control too.
Hands up all those useless fools and useful tools into acting like crazed idiots and mad despots who don't think a great deal at all, and certainly nothing creative and constructive about Realising the Present and would imagine the Future much the same as the Past. Be honest with yourself now, no deluding oneself with tales of daring does not yet done which are therefore manifestly not true and just figments of imagination in a weak and/or febrile mind.
Have a nice day, y'all.
Re: Dork City
Nah I've read El Reg since the early 2000s, so not new, but certainly a new commentard. Anyway, usually the headlines are CLEVER. Just CAPSING a few WORDS, which seems to have taken over the usual wittiness, ISN'T all THAT witty.
PAAS? Surely it's not almost Easter already ...
You know, those easter-egg dye & decorate kits from Specialty Brands? All flash & glam, but no added substance, made especially to impress the children, and separate money from the adults?
Oh. I see the cloud connection now ...
