"Forward Thinking and Good Support"

What do you like best?

Cloudbees has excellent knowledge base articles that are in depth. The web support is good and there is coordination between the account representative and support in case of issues. Support staff is knowledgeable and there are opportunities to work with some of the plugin maintainers. If you have the support contract, you also have access to training videos and information.

What do you dislike?

Since support is web based and there is not a support number, sometimes it is difficult to figure out the best way to get immediate support when needed. Some of the training and knowledge base articles would benefit from review by a native English speaker.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Cloudbees has the ability to be an all in one tool. I recently viewed a webinar where they are working to integrate security and auditing tools, which is also sorely needed in the CI/CD industry.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business had several CI/CD products which were not supported and did not integrate well. Cloudbees has a good product with various integrations and it is improving the visibility and speed of our CI/CD environment.

What Continuous Integration solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"CloudBees is an ideal choice for hosting"

What do you like best?

I like CloudBees since it is an open source continuous integration platform that offers a wide array of cloud hosting services.

Another main benefit of CloudBees is that it allows users to spin up a new server and use it to carry out an entirety of your application’s codes thereby providing exceptional concurrency in all features and aspects of your applications.

What do you dislike?

One of the downsides of this application is that it is not compatible with applications that do not run on Java framework.

In addition, while it is paramount to have all your applications scaled up concurrently, it can be irrelevant to have a huge amount of resources at your dispose while you only need a certain level of concurrency in the background to process large data volumes.

Finally, it is less flexible than other similar platforms in the market as there is a limit on the number of activities that you can do on the platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend CloudBees as it offers exceptional support to all Java applications and the customer care team is responsive and supportive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One of the main benefits is that it focuses only on Java language as well as other languages that are compatible with Java runtime. The fact that is focuses exclusively on one language makes it an ideal choice for all applications that run on Java.

"Decent JAVA framework, needs support for other non JVM languages"

What do you like best?

Cloudbees would have been a great framework if all we did was on JVM. As it uses Jenkins, plugin support is top notch.The apps run on separate instances of a server, so concurrency is a given. Has all the perks of jenkins, so build status is always available. As they only deal in apps in JAVA, support has been great, almost all questions are answered without much phone jugglery. They can talk about our setup, however unique it may be. A well versed support team is always a plus.

What do you dislike?

As stated before, the non JVM apps are not supported, so we are pretty much out of luck with ruby/php. The lack of them is rather limiting and tempts us to use Jenkins and configure it for all our needs. As of now, There are some stability issues where the server refuses to acknowledge any request. Also have noticed some scalability problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are running some java app, CloudBees has got you covered. You'll love the support and the features they provide, just stay in their ecosystem. You probably will not regret it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A decent display setup can point to build status messages for all the devs/non-devs. Some of our JAVA apps, having a consistent support is great.

"Leader in CI/CD industry with veterans/experienced developers working for them."

What do you like best?

cloudbees is the leader in CI CD development and innovation. their products are award winning and open source with more than 6000 stars on github like very famous jenkins.

what i like most about cloudbees how much they care about open source, and technologies to be working platform independent and have up to date support for technologies like docker.

based on java, they have some of best industry veteran java programmers, ex-core contributors of hudson and have now taken it afar to become extremely versatile product jenkins.

lets face it, everyone loves jenkins, but to scale and manager volumes of builds, is what cloudbees has support for technologies like mesos .

What do you dislike?

there isnt much to dislike even if you try, but the support for jenkins as compared cloudbees plugins is quite divergent. that all makes sense since cloudbees isnt inherently an open source company, they do strive and thrive to make money but they do it best way that helps communities also.

Recommendations to others considering the product

cloudbees has variety of products, to see which one floats your boat, its always a good idea to start with their open source projects like jenkins and cloudbees docker plugin support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

large scale application deployments, gated testing and integration test, multiple builds per day and secure single sign-on based platform for users to manage their development environments.

It helps me do my job by . It does what I need it to do.

"Why pay for what you can get for free"

What do you like best?

The free swag. I did not like any of the other features that are unique to Cloudbees.

What do you dislike?

Lack of scaleability. Promise of plugins never being followed through with.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would not recommend paying for Cloudbees, and would recommend to stick with Jenkins.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were using Cloudbees with the hope of scalability in their multi master setup, and with the hope of plugins they had promised that never happend. I was never impressed with the scalability, and found it to be quite lacking for the needs of modern CI/CT/CD needs.
