Announces 18 new global partners to help developers build, test, deploy and manage apps in the cloud
Brussels, Belgium – June 25, 2013 – CloudBees, Inc., the Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader, is extending its footprint in Europe as demand for its PaaS service continues to grow. Through its Services Partner Programme, it hopes to continue its growth across Europe by engaging with leading systems integrators (SIs), web design firms and software development consultants to leverage the CloudBees offering. The company is keen to recruit more partners in Europe in the coming months to meet demand. Today the company also announces 18 new partners within its Partner Ecosystem across the globe, with several Services Partners headquartered in Europe.
Now over 60 partners strong, the CloudBees Ecosystem offers greater value across a wide array of service offerings for CloudBees customers. More information regarding joining the CloudBees partner programmes is available at http://www.cloudbees.com/platform/ecosystem/overview.cb
The CloudBees Ecosystem gives development teams one-click access to a suite of build, test, deploy, monitor and management services. For Technology Partners, the CloudBees Ecosystem offers exposure to users of the fastest-growing Java PaaS solution on the market and the ability to easily extend their services to those users. For Services Partners, using the CloudBees Platform accelerates software delivery projects for clients, reduces the complexities of the development and deployment process and optimises consultant productivity.
“With the help of partners, we are accelerating application development and deployment,” said Andrew Lee, vice president, business development, CloudBees. “Our Partner Ecosystem is bringing more value to software development teams that need best-of-breed services for software delivery and also to organisations that need a trusted services partner to help craft and implement their solutions.”
Stephen Perin, open API offering manager for OCTO Technology, based in France, said his company has successfully used the CloudBees Platform for customers in a variety of vertical industries, including financial services.
“The CloudBees Platform as a Service greatly helps OCTO Technology to deliver innovative projects with very aggressive time-to-market deadlines,” said Perin. “When starting new projects, in just a few clicks CloudBees provides us with a complete software factory. We were able to develop a custom Web API and get the production environment configured and running in record time for a major online bank in France.”
When Unidine Corp., a food and dining management services company, needed support for one of its most mission-critical applications, it turned to People10, headquartered in Germany, a new CloudBees Services Partner.
“That turned out to be the ideal choice,” said David Leuci, vice president, Information Technology, Unidine. “We have come to depend on the expertise offered by People10 and the technology offered by CloudBees not only to deliver new functionality quickly, but also to make our application more stable, reduce technical debts and minimise business risk. We have set up a continuous delivery environment with Jenkins and are able to consistently run our application around the clock with no interruptions in service.”
VX Company is a Services Partner in the Netherlands that used the CloudBees Platform to re-develop a former desktop application for Soweto Care System and deliver it as a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution. Soweto Care System is a non-governmental organization (NGO) in Africa that supports other NGOs focused on AIDS programs.
“The Soweto application is now delivered as a SaaS solution and used to monitor AIDS patients and their families,” said Bas van Oudenaarde, technical manager, VX Company. “With the cloud development and delivery model, it is much easier for Soweto Care System and other NGOs to implement and use Soweto as a SaaS application. There is no software to install, upgrade or maintain in a SaaS model.”
BlazeMeter, a newly integrated Technology Partner, provides a load testing service that runs on CloudBees. "We are delighted to be integrated with the CloudBees Platform, the leading Java Platform as a Service solution,” said Alon Girmonsky, CEO. “BlazeMeter was created to address the performance testing needs of developers and devops teams. Adding a built-in integration with CloudBees and Jenkins was an obvious next step.”
