CloudBees (http://cloudbees.com) aims to provide the leading Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) covering both development services and a production runtime for Java. The company debuted with DEV@cloud, which features the first Hudson cloud service, and will continue to be built out into a complete development, build, test, staging and production environment for any cloud infrastructure. This ‘No IT, No Middleware’ approach significantly lowers costs for Java users. Founded by former JBoss CTO Sacha Labourey and an elite technology team, CloudBees is backed by Matrix Partners and individual investors including Marc Fleury and Bob Bickel.
CloudBees offers cloud services available by monthly subscriptions. The company also has an on-premise Hudson offering that is available in annual subscriptions.
The CloudBees PaaS will uniquely support development and build and multi-tenancy without stepping effects. It will also allow the customer to choose from multiple Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) vendors (e.g., Amazon, Rackspace, Terremark).
