Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) player CloudBees has expanded its partner ecosystem for Java developers. This expansion is intended to gives developers access to more platform-based services Java applications deployments in the cloud.
A new set of partner services now includes HP ALI, a service that aggregates information from multiple development tools to establish ALM traceability. Through the CloudBees partnership, data from the Jenkins Continuous Integration server is now connected directly into HP ALM/ALI, a development which has been engineered in order to try and minimize the burden of administrative tasks such as reporting and environment set up.
Also included is EnterpriseDB Postgres Plus Cloud Database, a service designed to use elastic and highly scalable Database as a Service (DBaaS) environments while freeing DBAs and application developers from what CloudBees calls the "rigors" of setting up and administering modern and robust database environments.
Included in the mix is CloudMine, a platform that provides server-side components out-of-the-box so mobile application developers can focus on creating more engaging mobile and web apps. By eliminating the "unnecessary tedium" of building custom back-end solutions, CloudMine is said to enable developers to focus on the real challenges of creating applications.
"The CloudBees Partner Ecosystem brings partners together from across the entire application lifecycle and provides easy, proven-to-work access to the full suite of build, deploy, monitor, and manage services that development teams require," said Andrew Lee, vice president of business development, CloudBees. "The new Verified Partner services give developers even more options to help them assemble and deploy applications in the cloud, without having to worry about any of the underlying IT infrastructure."
We also find FoxWeave here, a data integration service that helps enterprises synchronize business data across all their cloud and in-house systems and databases. Plus Logentries, a cloud-based log management and system intelligence platform that collects, analyzes, and visualizes log data in real time. The service enhances the raw log data with vendor specific intelligence, annotating raw logs with relevant platform information.
