CloudBees Ecosystem Expands With the Addition of Integrated Services From SendGrid, Websolr and AppDynamicsJava™ Developers Enjoy One-Click Access to Additional Cloud Services From Within the CloudBees Platform
June 06, 2012
CloudBees, Inc., the Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader, today announced the addition to the CloudBees Partner Ecosystem of several new cloud service partners: SendGrid, Websolr and AppDynamics. The CloudBees Partner Ecosystem enables developers to activate an array of partner services on the CloudBees PaaS with one click, giving them convenient access to a variety of powerful, integrated development and deployment services instantly, without any extra configuration or installation effort. CloudBees transparently provisions the partner services and integrates all charges into one convenient bill. This level of integration allows developers to focus on building, testing and deploying Java web applications in the cloud—instead of managing their environment.
The offerings announced by CloudBees today enable cloud-based email, managed search services and performance management functionality. The three newly integrated services are:
SendGrid, a cloud-based email infrastructure service that relieves businesses of the cost and complexity of maintaining custom email systems in-house. SendGrid provides reliable delivery, scalability and real-time analytics along with flexible APIs that make custom integration a breeze.
Websolr, an open source search engine powered by Apache Solr that allows developers to index and search their content. Using Websolr’s easy-to-use, managed service, developers get fast, accurate and scalable search results readily available, without having to maintain dedicated servers for search.
AppDynamics, a new kind of application performance management solution that helps developers build applications that perform and scale. The AppDynamics application gives developers real-time, code-level visibility into the performance of Java applications and databases (either SQL or NoSQL) to help tune and optimize them.
“We’re excited to offer CloudBees PaaS users one-click access to SendGrid’s advanced email deliverability service,” said Isaac Saldana, president and co-founder, SendGrid, Inc. “Now it’s even easier for CloudBees developers to focus on developing great applications instead of managing email servers.”
“We are excited to join the CloudBees Partner Ecosystem to help developers provide a fast and flexible full-text search experience,” said Nick Zadrozny, co-founder, Websolr. “Our fully managed hosting service for the open source Apache Solr search engine is a great fit for savvy developers who want access to the best search features and functionality without the distraction of managing another set of servers.”
“We’re enthusiastic about partnering with CloudBees and enabling Java developers to manage the applications that they create using the CloudBees platform,” said Stuart Horne, vice president of business development, AppDynamics. “Building applications for the cloud offers tremendous advantages for operations and development teams, but it also brings a whole herd of new challenges. The CloudBees platform will help facilitate the creation of cloud-based applications, and AppDynamics will enable the monitoring and management of those applications to ensure flawless uptime and performance. It’s a perfect fit.”
These new services join a host of other powerful offerings already running on the CloudBees Platform such as Sauce Labs, JFrog, New Relic, CollabNet Codesion and others. The CloudBees Ecosystem provides developers access to a one-stop shop for their cloud application development, deployment and management needs.
“CloudBees customers continue to tell us that the services provided by our Ecosystem Partners are a valuable addition to our platform. Adding services from SendGrid, Websolr and AppDynamics is another win for our customers,” said Andrew Lee, vice president of business development, CloudBees. “The CloudBees Ecosystem offers seamless integration across a variety of value-add cloud services, providing a more unified experience for users. Developers benefit from being able to code, build, test, deploy, monitor and maintain their applications—all from a single platform.”
