The DevOps tool market is starting to consolidate. CloudBees, the development tool vendor best known for its Jenkins distribution, has purchased continuous delivery (CD) vendor Codeship.
“This is the most impactful acquisition in CloudBees’ history,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO and co-founder of CloudBees. “We’ve been leading the continuous delivery and DevOps industry with automation solutions and we recognize that needs are evolving quickly. With Codeship, we want to provide organizations an additional option that is self-service and easy to use. This acquisition ensures that CloudBees will be able to offer a range of CI/CD solutions, from cloud, self-service and opinionated to on-premise, self-managed and fully customizable – all through a smooth and unified experience.”
In the future, CloudBees plans to continue offering Codeship's CD capabilities as a cloud computing service, but it will change the brand name to CloudBees. Codeship's leadership and employees will be integrated into the CloudBees team.
