CollabNet's Enterprise Cloud Development Platform Now Available Through CloudBees Partner Ecosystem

Java™ Developers Can Now Add Codesion With One Click From Within the CloudBees Platform

WOBURN, MA--(Marketwire - Feb 22, 2012) - CloudBees, Inc., the Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader, today announced that the Codesion cloud development platform from CollabNet is now offered as part of the CloudBees Partner Ecosystem. CloudBees provides the only Java PaaS that offers easy, one-click access to integrated, partner-provided services. Tapping into the CloudBees Partner Ecosystem enables developers to instantly extend functionality, as needed, throughout the application development and deployment process. With Codesion, developers using the CloudBees Platform can now instantly provision Codesion's Subversion and Git code repositories online, track development issues, and make use of the broad range of popular developer tools available from within Codesion.

Codesion is the leading cloud development and deployment solution, with more than 3,800 customers and 70,000 users around the world. The partnership provides CollabNet customers seamless access to the CloudBees Java PaaS -- including hosted Jenkins Continuous Integration for development, as well as hosted runtimes and databases for deployment -- for Codesion's large and growing customer base.

Additionally, integration of the Codesion enterprise-grade solution within the CloudBees Platform provides important development capabilities in areas such as:

  • Source control management hosting (Subversion, GIT, CVS)
  • Wiki, issue and bug trackers (Trac, Bugzilla)
  • Agile project management (ScrumWorks Pro)
  • Shared drive (WebDAV)
  • External Integrations (Basecamp, FogBugz, Lighthouse, Pivotal Tracker, Rally, JIRA and VersionOne)
  • Automated deployment (Codesion Publisher)
  • Multiple project workspaces
  • Advanced security (SSL, role-based access control, password control, IP whitelist)
  • Offsite backups
  • High availability infrastructure (99.9% availability)

Java developers using development and runtime services within the CloudBees Platform can instantly add functionality by activating additional partner services -- all from within the CloudBees Platform. CloudBees automatically handles the details of setting up the account with the partner, to include provisioning and consolidated invoicing. Developers enjoy a one-stop shop for their cloud application development, deployment and management needs.

"CollabNet is excited to become a part of the CloudBees Partner Ecosystem. Our partnership allows our two organizations to offer an unparalleled experience to developers in the cloud," said Guy Marion, vice president and general manager, CollabNet Cloud Services. "Our Codesion development platform provides secure, reliable and enterprise-grade access to source code management tools like Subversion and Git, as well as agile development tools. Together, CloudBees and CollabNet can improve productivity of distributed development teams, provide freedom of choice and lower the cost of application delivery."

"Codesion is a tremendous addition to the CloudBees Partner Ecosytem," said Sacha Labourey, CEO and founder, CloudBees. "We created our Partner Ecosystem to provide developers with instant access to additional functionality, as they need it. With Codesion now available through the Ecosystem, developers can focus on writing, building, managing and deploying quality code instead of focusing on tasks like: setting up disparate tools, connecting to existing tools or deploying tools to a public or private cloud environment. The addition of Codesion to the CloudBees Platform is more proof of the value we keep delivering -- improved productivity across development teams, an array of best of breed tools and, ultimately, lowered application development and deployment costs."

CloudBees launched the CloudBees Partner Ecosystem in June 2011, with five initial partners: Cloudant, JFrog, New Relic, SonarSource and Sauce Labs. The addition of Codesion brings the total number of CloudBees Partner Ecosystem offerings to eleven, with each providing key development and runtime capabilities. Additional CloudBees Partner Ecosystem offerings include: SendGrid, Websolr, MongoHQ, Papertrail and xWiki Cloud.
