As part of Jenkins Enterprise, CloudBees provides an extensive set of Enterprise plugins, one of which - the CloudBees Support Plugin - makes it easy to file a support ticket with us (and automatically provides us upfront with the typical information our engineers need about your Jenkins setup)
Anyway, one of the issues we hear customers mention is that they already have quite a complex configuration set up using one of the other authorization strategies and they don't have the time to migrate… so while they want to get some of the features we have, they just don't have the time to make the big switch.
Fear not: version 3.13 of the role based access control plugin now has your back (at least for the global matrix and project matrix authorization strategies)
CloudBees provides first OSX hosted CI solution for iOS testing: "First, the OSX Jenkins slaves are fully on-demand and elastic, so you get as many as you need when you need them. Second, we've done some serious magic behind the scenes to preserve state for you in this elastic environment. Thus, your cached libraries and other build/test-related componentry are preserved, speeding builds and tests. Look for us to be extending this capability even further, for customizable environments you can bring your own tools to. Now, even for OSX/iOS, you can go from code to delivery completely in the cloud. - See more at: http://blog.cloudbees.com/2013/09/cloudbees-is-your-mobile-ci-solution.html#sthash.f9if4UuR.dpuf"
I’m proud to announce that CloudBees has just closed an $11.2 million Series C financing round. The round was led by Verizon Ventures, along with our current investors, Matrix and Lightspeed as well as angel and private investors. I'd like to take this opportunity to share my pride for the amazing work that has been achieved by our team and congratulate them all: working in an environment where the overall good of the company comes before individual egos and performance is very powerful. And humbling. http://lnkd.in/duAccNm Onward!
When I do a presentation about the cloud, one of the first questions I know I’ll face from any IT person relates to security. “Why should I trust you? How can I trust the cloud? Who are you, anyway?”
When it comes to security we are still very much reptilian: we tend to trust what’s close to us, people we know, what’s inside the group, inside the nest, inside the firewall. We prefer to trust Bob, the guy responsible for the company backups, rather then send our data out on AWS S3. We think, “Why would Bob screw us? I was just at his wedding, what a great guy he is.” While you’ll hear lots of rationalised arguments about why data is safer within the organisation, at the core of this claim there is actually very little that’s rational. - See more at: http://blog.cloudbees.com/2013/09/the-nsa-cloud-and-our-reptilian-behavior.html#sthash.BVyrpZWA.dpuf
