CloudBees Hosted Jenkins, DEV@cloud, Now Supports Deployment to Google App EngineThe Company’s Unique Hosted Development Services Brings Continuous Integration and Deployment Capabilities to Google App Engine for Both Java and Python Developers
October 01, 2012
CloudBees, Inc., the Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader, announced another industry first today by bringing Jenkins-based continuous integration and deployment capabilities to Java and Python application developers who want to deploy applications to Google App Engine.
Jenkins, the open source continuous integration server, has rapidly become the defacto standard for teams looking to accelerate their development processes and improve software quality. CloudBees DEV@cloud includes a hosted Jenkins service as part of its rich set of development services, as well as integrated partner services that can be added with a single click, including JFrog’s Artifactory, SauceLabs OnDemand and SonarSource.
Google App Engine developers can now instantly sign up for DEV@cloud using their existing Google account, taking advantage of OAuth-based control to enable CloudBees-hosted services to deploy directly to Google App Engine. Google App Engine developers using both Java and Python now have immediate access to the end-to-end capabilities needed to set up continuous integration pipelines and testing environments using CloudBees pay-as-you-go, cloud-based services seamlessly integrated with Google App Engine.
“We are a big user of Google App Engine for the deployment of web and mobile applications for our customers in France," said Didier Girard, chief operating officer, Sfeir, and a Google Developers Expert 2012. "For us, the ability to use CloudBees DEV@cloud for application development and then automatically deploy the completed application to Google App Engine is a game changer. We can deliver applications in a more streamlined and cost effective way to our customers.” Sfeir is a CloudBees services partner in Europe.
“As Python and Java developers continue to build more sophisticated and complex applications on Google App Engine they are also looking for other cloud-based services for building, testing, and auto-deploying to development, staging, and production environments. With the latest integration of CloudBees development services, this becomes much easier," said Chris Ramsdale, Google App Engine product manager. "By providing enhanced and integrated continuous integration capabilities for Python and Java developers, CloudBees is offering flexibility and options for application development that further improve the Google App Engine ecosystem.”
The announcement marks another milestone in CloudBees ongoing investment in platform extensibility and its commitment to Jenkins as a critical element of cloud-based development for any target deployment environment. "Continuous integration is increasingly seen as the most effective tool for improving time-to-market in distributed teams, complex test scenarios, and mobile app development," said Steven G. Harris, senior vice president of products, CloudBees. "With Google's tremendous market presence and proven track record with Google App Engine, we believe Java and Python developers will see instant value in CloudBees hosted development services."
