Shippable SaaS-ifies CI/CD on Red Hat's OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service

Shippable announced today that it has added support for OpenShift Gears in addition to Docker containers.

SAN FRANCISCO, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Hat Summit -- Shippable, a new and blazingly fast hosted continuous integration and deployment service, announced availability today for OpenShift by Red Hat, the award-winning Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering. This gives OpenShift developers a cutting edge system for quickly building and testing code and applications for the OpenShift environment.

Shippable combines secure and dedicated containers, called Minions, with breakthroughs in architecture that dramatically speed up the process of building and testing code, even against multiple versions at the same time. Developers can set up CI for their codebase in a couple of minutes, and for each code commit after that, Shippable will run an integration build and the entire test suite, and notify them about the results.

"Shippable's PaaS-based, hosted CI/CD service will give OpenShift customers a true SaaS solution as opposed to spending the Gears to host a CI server themselves, and then spending engineering time configuring and maintaining it. We are thrilled that Shippable will feature their solutions in the OpenShift Marketplace," said Chris Morgan, Technical Director, OpenShift Partner Ecosystem, Red Hat. 

"Modern devops in enterprises are looking for better and faster ways of delivering results. By intelligently leveraging the container technology pioneered by Docker and OpenShift , we are fundamentally changing the CI/CD process by not only cutting time and expense but also making the catchphrase 'build once run anywhere' ring true," said Avi Cavale, co-founder and CEO of Shippable.

Red Hat has made two interesting announcements in the last few months related to OpenShift. First, they announced a collaboration with Docker around Linux Container technology, enabling Red Hat to create a simpler, more secure, lightweight, and portable environment for applications. Second, they also added support for .NET in OpenShift Origin, the open source project that serves as the upstream for both OpenShift Online and OpenShift Enterprise. This makes OpenShift a holistic platform that is viable for both enterprises and startups. Shippable natively supports both Docker and .NET, aligning with both of these innovations in OpenShift Origin.

To support OpenShift natively, the Shippable team had to port their entire codebase in a couple of weeks. "We were only able to develop this so quickly because we used Shippable to build Shippable," says CEO Avi Cavale "Moving from one platform to an entirely new platform was not an insignificant task and this is a great example of how our solution helps you ship quality code faster. We hope Shippable becomes the default CI for OpenShift users."

Shippable launched in February on Docker to great reviews. CTO of StockTwits, Chris Corriveau said, "If your goal is to commit code often, test it, and ship to production as fast as possible to keep up with your company's changing features and initiatives, there is no better product than Shippable!"

Shippable's beta service on OpenShift is now available at openshift.shippable.com.

DXWordEXPO New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
In this presentation, you will learn first hand what works and what doesn't while architecting and deploying OpenStack. Some of the topics will include:- best practices for creating repeatable deployments of OpenStack- multi-site considerations- how to customize OpenStack to integrate with your existing systems and security best practices.
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the benefits of the cloud without losing performance as containers become the new paradigm.
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to the new world.
