CloudBees and Mesosphere Partner to Enable High-Velocity Continuous Delivery Workloads for Modern Application Development

CloudBees, the enterprise Jenkins company and continuous delivery (CD) leader, today announced that it has collaborated with Mesosphere to support continuous delivery by running Jenkins on Mesosphere's Datacenter Operating System (DC/OS), the first open and comprehensive platform for building, running and scaling modern enterprise applications. The alliance will provide the support and security for enterprises looking to scale mission-critical workloads using containerized infrastructure.

Running on the Apache Mesos-based DC/OS platform, Jenkins can be dynamically scaled to run jobs across hundreds of Jenkins masters on Docker containers distributed across the DC/OS cluster. Jenkins is available on DC/OS as part of the DC/OS Universe “app store,” which offers one-click installation of distributed services. Jenkins is also part of Mesosphere Velocity, a top-to-bottom reference architecture for building a complete CI/CD environment.

“Leveraging the combined strengths of CloudBees and Mesosphere, enterprises will be able to derive value from both the Jenkins community and DC/OS technology to have modern applications built using the latest technology and processes,” said Durga Sammeta, senior director of global alliances, CloudBees. “By working together to ensure customers can build optimized CD pipelines and deploy seamlessly to the cloud, the combination of Jenkins and Mesosphere solutions amplify and accelerate the time to value for users.”

Mesosphere's open source DC/OS platform drastically simplifies the process of deploying,managing and scaling modern applications, including Docker containers and big data systems. It is built on a foundation of Apache Mesos, which works under the covers to aggregate up to tens of thousands of machines into a single resource pool. DC/OS services are highly available, and users can easily deploy and manage distributed services, as well as massive collections of application containers, without configuring servers.

“CI/CD is a popular use case among Mesosphere customers and DC/OS users, and Jenkins is a very important piece of that puzzle,” said Tobias Knaup, co-founder and CTO, Mesosphere. “Having CloudBees as a partner is a big win for our enterprise customers who want to pair the scalability and operational ease of DC/OS with the Jenkins expertise of CloudBees.”
