CloudBees announces services partner program to meet application development demand

New Partner Program Extends Global Access to Expert PaaS Development Services

PARIS, FRANCE - December 12, 2012 - CloudBees, Inc., the Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader, has announced the expansion of the CloudBees Partner Ecosystem by introducing a new Services Partner Program. The CloudBees Services Partner Program gives systems integrators (SIs), web design firms and software development consultants the technology, marketing and sales tools they need to be successful using the CloudBees Platform to provide application development, deployment and consulting services to their customers.

The cloud is changing the way businesses consume information technology. Service providers must transform as well by delivering new offerings to their clients and maximizing the business opportunities of the cloud. With the CloudBees Platform, service providers are empowered to deliver services across the entire application lifecycle, providing the opportunity to deliver more value to clients and more revenue to their firms.

The CloudBees Platform provides a model that offers unique differentiation and competitive benefits to service providers, whether during the development and/or deployment stages of the application lifecycle:

  • Development
    The development services available on DEV@cloud, enable service providers to accelerate application development by gaining immediate access to a fully-provisioned Java platform, including repositories, continuous integration, testing and user acceptance. No waiting to procure hardware and other resources, no hassle to configure the project environment - just start coding.

  • Deployment
    The runtime services available on RUN@cloud enable service providers to quickly and easily deploy applications on behalf of their clients and to manage those applications throughout the production phase of their lifecycle. This enables services organizations to extend their value beyond traditional application development-only offerings. With CloudBees, service providers can deliver additional value to their clients by supporting application deployment activities, without having to invest in the IT resources to do so.

The CloudBees Services Partner Program provides:

  • PaaS integrator partnership - ideal for service providers who want to use cloud resources for an initial Proof of Concept (POC) and then proceed with the project. With the CloudBees PaaS, service providers can build, deploy, monitor and manage customer applications in the cloud. These partners utilize the DEV@cloud and RUN@cloud services throughout the entire application lifecycle.

  • Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees reseller partnership - designed for service providers who also want to resell Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees. Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees provides support and enterprise-class plugins for the world's most popular Continuous Integration server. Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees is comprised of open source Jenkins, along with additional proprietary plugins and technical support.

"CloudBees' goal is to help our Services Partners achieve new levels of success and improve customer satisfaction through the use of CloudBees technology and their expert services," said Sacha Labourey, CEO, CloudBees. "In forming the Services Partner Program and recruiting quality service providers to be part of it, we enrich the CloudBees customer experience. CloudBees customers are assured access to knowledgeable, high-quality service providers, making it convenient for them to tap local expertise and resources when needed."
