Cloud-Extended Enterprise Delivers a Blend of ‘Fast IT’ in the Public
Cloud and ‘Core IT’ On-PremiseVPN to Jenkins – This new capability allows users of the
CloudBees-hosted Jenkins service to connect via VPN to on-premise
development resources, such as source code repositories, test
databases and other development artifacts. Fast IT projects can use
cloud-based resources for development, testing and staging while
securely accessing existing, on-premise enterprise investments.
Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) Support – Enterprises
overwhelmingly use SAML-based identity and access management systems.
To take advantage of cloud-based resources for Fast IT projects, they
need to control access to their systems using their existing SAML
investments. CloudBees now supports SAML 2.0 based authentication and
authorization, which can be coupled with Role-based Access Control
within the CloudBees hosted Jenkins service.
WEAVE@cloud App-Centric Integration – CloudBees new data
migration and synchronization service, WEAVE@cloud has been extended
to further simplify how RUN@cloud applications publish and subscribe
to events from data and SaaS services. Events from on-premise and
hosted databases and services can trigger actions in applications
hosted on RUN@cloud and vice-versa. CloudBees’ recent acquisition of
FoxWeave established CloudBees as the first PaaS vendor to offer
services for SaaS application and data integration.
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Inc., the Enterprise Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader,
today announced availability of key new capabilities in support of its
cloud-extended enterprise strategy. Cloud-extended enterprises take full
advantage of the public cloud to accelerate application development and
delivery while continuing to make use of existing on-premise IT assets
in a secure manner.
Enterprises increasingly recognize that the cloud lets them spin up and
deliver new projects rapidly, work that many are referring to as “Fast
IT.” These projects must be launched quickly, scaled up and down as
needed, and then shut down quickly, depending on requirements. At the
same time, enterprises are looking to keep their “Core IT” assets
in-house, to leverage those key investments and protect critical data.
“To meet today’s fast-cycle business needs, companies need to unleash
their ‘Fast IT’ – and they’re getting this done by leveraging the public
cloud,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO and founder of CloudBees. “At the same
time, they don’t want to scrap their existing ‘Core IT’ investments.
Using the CloudBees platform, enterprises can get the best of both
worlds: They can develop an app in the cloud, test it, stage it and run
it, but they can still leverage all their existing IT investments.
Enterprises need tools to help them adapt to this new level of
flexibility – and this vision is guiding us in terms of the new features
we’re bringing to our platform.”
The CloudBees platform enhancements cover three technology areas, making
it simple for enterprises to adopt Continuous Integration, improve
business agility and benefit from elastic cloud resources while securely
accessing core IT assets.
