Whole lotta CI/CD goin’ on
- CloudBees acquires software automation startup Electric Cloud, French coverage.
- Jay@451’s summary: “Given the sprawl of tools and platforms for enterprise DevOps and CI/CD software releases, CloudBees' purchase of Electric Cloud represents a welcome consolidation in the industry. It also continues DevOps M&A that began with JFrog's acquisition of Shippable earlier this year. The deal should also have a broad impact on enterprise DevOps since CloudBees – backer of the widely used Jenkins CI server – will add release management, orchestration, automation and other aspects of CD from Electric Cloud, a leading enterprise DevOps specialist. The combined offerings should help provide feedback for enterprises throughout CI/CD release processes, enabling and enhancing feedback loops that are critical to successful DevOps implementations. The move may also help both vendors address the use of cloud-native software such as containers and Kubernetes, as well as hybrid cloud infrastructures that span on-premises, public and private cloud environments.”
- Electric Cloud has ~110 employees, CloudBess ~400.
- Harness raises $60 million to automate continuous app delivery with machine learning:
- “brings Harness’ total raised to around $80 million and values the company at $500 million, will be put toward R&D and hiring, said CEO Jyoti Bansal — particularly on the development, sales, and customer success side of the business.” (So, not marketing, HR, or finance.)
