CloudBees is a Java PaaS provider that leverages Jenkins continuous integration to help its customers deliver software faster and incrementally. Viridity Energy, which provides commercial customers with information on peak loads and energy transmissions, uses CloudBees for quality-assurance testing, a production environment, and as a repository for binaries, says Duncan DeVore, Viridity vice president of engineering. Having built a modular, distributed application, the company stores source code and tracks issues in GitHub and has had no issues with the integration between GitHub and CloudBees. Viridity's cloud-based paradigm replaces an internal system.
"The reason [we went to the cloud] is we want to focus our efforts on building business software and not worry about the deployment side of it and dealing with that headache," DeVore said.
