CloudBees Accelerator Now Offers Cloud Bursting and Android Q Build Acceleration: Two More Ways to Get Products to Market in Minutes Instead of Hours

DEVOPS WORLD | JENKINS WORLD--CloudBees®, the enterprise DevOps leader powering the continuous economy, today introduced new enhancements for its CloudBees Accelerator™ platform that will help IT teams get products to market even faster. For the first time, teams can use the industry-leading acceleration platform to burst workloads to all three major cloud providers and shorten build and test times for devices running the new Android Q operating system from hours to minutes.
CloudBees Accelerator 11.1 dramatically accelerates build, QA and testing cycles by distributing the build over a large cluster of inexpensive servers. Adding support for cloud bursting on Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform and for the development of Android Q devices, it will help organizations get to market quicker and create more time for experimentation and iteration.
Trying to accelerate build and test cycles with dedicated build clouds is inefficient. CloudBees Accelerator previously enabled developers to burst workloads from a data center or private cloud onto an AWS cloud platform, enabling them to cut build and test times in those environments. Now, with support for Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform, teams can shift workloads to any of the three major cloud providers on-demand, giving them greater efficiency and eliminating vendor lock-in.
Meanwhile, Android device makers are under huge time – and cost – pressures to release new devices concurrently with Android Q, the new Android operating system now in beta and scheduled for release in Q3 2019. Using CloudBees Accelerator, they can shorten their build and test times to minutes instead of hours, allowing them to get to market faster and potentially avoid fines for releasing devices after the delivery date of a new Android system.
CloudBees Accelerator 11.1 also includes the following new features:
“Shortening the time to market and creating more flexibility is what digital transformation is all about,” said Shawn Ahmed, vice president of product marketing, CloudBees. “This new version of CloudBees Accelerator enables all companies, especially Android device manufacturers, to drive their delivery processes faster than ever. It also gives them more flexibility to embrace multi-cloud environments by using whatever cloud provider they choose for build and test acceleration.”
