CloudBees has today announced a partnership with Atos and VMware that aims help customers adopt DevOps best practices at scale through Atos’ recently announced Atos Digital Hybrid Cloud (DHC), powered by VMware Tanzu and CloudBees cloud-native CI/CD enterprise solution.
The industry-first partnership aims to help customers gain greater business agility, scalability, and reduce their IT investments in building and automating software delivery pipelines. The end-to-end CI/CD automation platform will enable customers to integrate diverse software portfolios, from traditional applications to leading-edge applications relying on a microservice architecture.
“As forward-looking organisations continue to focus on digital transformation initiatives, they are increasingly seeking assistance from trusted service providers for the management of their DevOps operations,” said Francois Dechery, chief strategy officer, CloudBees. “This partnership represents a true industry first. By combining the power of a large managed service provider and a leading global cloud provider with our CI/CD solution, we’re helping customers to more effectively and efficiently modernise.”
