JumpCloud Soars into Commercial Availability

JumpCloud™, the leading automated server management tool for DevOps and IT pros, today announced the general commercial availability of its automated server management solution. JumpCloud launched its automated server management solution last September at the prestigious TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco event as a Startup Battlefield finalist. Since that time, hundreds of organizations have deployed JumpCloud, and requests for additional features have helped to iterate, refine, and optimize the solution for DevOps and IT professionals.

“The cloud's elasticity and agility has enabled several new operational models such as DevOps, an IT model that blurs the lines between development and IT operations, as well as consolidates historically segregated management functions to improve efficiency and responsiveness,” said Rich Mogull, CEO of Securosis, in What CISOs Need to Know About Cloud Computing.

JumpCloud’s mission is to automate the manual, tedious tasks of managing servers so that DevOps and IT pros can focus on what makes their business tick: innovation. JumpCloud has built a platform to execute these tasks, including SSH/privileged user management, admin activity monitoring, patch detection, and compliance. JumpCloud supports servers in the cloud, data center, colo, or hosted as VMs.

JumpCloud customers can now choose to extend their access to critical server management functionality for as little as $10 per month per server, as well as benefit from an hourly pricing rate per server should that be a better match for their scalable infrastructure. As part of the commercial plans, JumpCloud customers receive access to its best-in-class functionality, extended data retention, and phone support.

“JumpCloud has had a major impact on our daily routine. After automating with JumpCloud, we don’t have to spend cycles on many of our daily manual server management tasks such as managing users and tracking privileged commands,” said Scott Brown, CEO of Bounce.IO. “JumpCloud is simple and efficient, yet powerful. And, because we can focus on delivering our product and not on tedious maintenance tasks, its return on investment was almost immediate.”

“Commercially releasing JumpCloud has meant countless hours of team effort interacting with amazing customers, learning about their problems, and the best ways to solve them. I’m incredibly proud of our team’s results and honored to work with such great customers,” said Rajat Bhargava, President & CEO, JumpCloud. “JumpCloud is solving an incredibly difficult and important problem: how to enable companies to innovate faster.”

JumpCloud is available immediately. For a free 30-day trial, sign-up at www.jumpcloud.com.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the ability to deliver applications at warp speed using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) environments.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud hosts. This BriefingsDirect cloud services maturity discussion focuses on new ways to gain container orchestration, to better use serverless computing models, and employ inclusive management to keep the container love alive.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
