This in turn should provide programmers with choice and access to cloud-based development tools including Jenkins, the popular continuous integration server. Other deployment options also include CloudBees' own [email protected] platform and Google App Engine.

NOTE: Initiated by VMware, Cloud Foundry is an open platform as a service that sets out to provide a choice of clouds, developer frameworks, and application services. Cloud Foundry aims to make it faster and easier to build, test, deploy, and scale applications. It is an open source project and is available through a variety of private cloud distributions.

"Our vision is to make it easy for developers to quickly and easily deploy Java and JVM-based applications to the cloud of their choice," said Andrew Lee, vice president of business development, CloudBees.

"By providing additional options for runtime targets, we are delivering on our commitment to freedom of choice by allowing our respective users to take advantage of the best possible tools and platforms for their needs. With this integration, CloudBees is first to offer continuous cloud deployment to Cloud Foundry developers by bringing the power of Jenkins-based continuous integration to," he added.

CloudBees says it has a commitment to Jenkins Continuous Integration (CI) as a critical element of cloud-based development for any target deployment environment. The firm wants to make cloud-based continuous delivery easier by using Jenkins in the cloud to manage the development and delivery process.

Senior vice president of products at CloudBees Steven G. Harris rounds up by asserting that continuous integration is "increasingly seen" as the most effective tool for improving time-to-market in distributed teams, complex test scenarios, and mobile application development. As such, he reasons that by providing enhanced and integrated CI capabilities for developers should enjoy a better programming experience.
