Sonatype and CloudBees Launch DevOps Express Initiative

Sonatype, the leader in software supply chain automation, today announced the launch of DevOps Express, a one-of-a-kind industry initiative that simplifies access to a set of integrated, battle-tested DevOps solutions aiming to accelerate any organization’s time-to-value.

Prior to DevOps Express, buyers were forced to assess, assemble and support best-in-breed solutions themselves. As a foundational member of DevOps Express, Sonatype collaborated with CloudBees to design an approach that makes it easier for enterprises to acquire, design, integrate and support DevOps native tools. Other industry leaders participating in the initiative include Atlassian, BlazeMeter, CA Technologies, Chef, DevOps Institute, GitHub, Infostretch, JFrog, Puppet Labs, Sauce Labs, SOASTA, and SonarSource.

“No single technology provider offers an end-to-end DevOps solution. That’s why this DevOps Express initiative is a crucial industry development,” said Wayne Jackson, CEO, Sonatype. “In fact, DevOps practices have always emphasized collaboration within an organization to accelerate the pace of software delivery. Sonatype and the other DevOps Express partners are extending that collaboration into the buyer’s journey.”

As part of the DevOps Express initiative, Sonatype is delivering a set of twelve integrations available to the community. Integrations include:

Beyond product integrations, Sonatype has also taken the lead with DevOps Express partners to deliver the first set of 31 DevOps reference architectures. Each of the architectures reveals real-world deployments that integrate tools from participating DevOps Express members.

“DevOps Express is designed to streamline the efforts of enterprises looking to accelerate software development and delivery,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO and founder of CloudBees. “In partnership with Sonatype and other best-in-breed technology vendors, we are able to move the needle and provide enterprises with integrated DevOps solutions.”

“Every organization moving into the continuous delivery and DevOps era will benefit from the kind of organic industry collaboration exemplified by DevOps Express,” said Donnie Berkholz, Research Director for Development, DevOps, & IT Ops at 451 Research. “Rather than forcing enterprises to find their own way through a transformation, DevOps Express founding members are taking a proactive stance to help identify, integrate, and support a set of battle-tested, DevOps-native solutions.”

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
