CloudBees gives developers a cloud of build machines coordinated by Jenkins. When you commit your code to the repository, Jenkins triggers the cloud to execute all of the modules in your Maven build. The code is compiled, the documentation is rewritten, and the unit tests are executed. And that’s just a few of the CloudBees modules that you can enable. Then the build cloud goes off to handle someone else’s code. Builds don’t need to take years on that puny desktop machine. When your code is ready, Cloudbees will host it from another collection of machines ready to deploy your application. It’s a big pipeline that takes raw code in one end and dispenses HTML out the other.
