Jenkins-Based CloudBees Acquires Codeship to Fill Out CI/CD Portfolio

Looking to fill out its portfolio of continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) tools and services, Jenkins-based provider CloudBees has acquired cloud-based CI/CD vendor Codeship, the two companies announced Tuesday.

Joining each company’s service lines makes a lot of sense, noted Codeship  cofounder Moritz Plassnig, in a blog post about the acquisition: Codeship offers a simple, opinionated cloud-based CI/CD platform as a service, while CloudBees’s offerings, such as CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise, are more  highly flexible and customizable, targeted for larger on-premises environments or private cloud enterprise usage.

“Together, we can serve the whole market, all verticals, all types of applications and all kinds of technologies. Our goals are to offer best-of-breed CI/CD to everybody by offering a range of products to fit all needs,” he wrote.

Existing subscribers of the Codeship serviced will see no interruption, and the Codeship Basic, Codeship Pro and Codeship Enterprise will continue to be offered. There will be no forced transitions to CloudBees or Jenkins offerings — Codeship users will not be forced to use Jenkins if they choose not to. Over time, the CloudBees and Codeship platforms will be merged into a unified offering, one covering both cloud and on-premises deployments, for both some companies and large enterprises, the two companies noted.

“By joining our forces and portfolios, we are forming a CI/CD powerhouse, able to cater to all needs: from a one-person team to companies with tens of thousands of developers,” CloudBees CEO Sacha Labourey wrote on the CloudBees blog.
