More Hudson Adoption - CloudBees Provides HAAS
The adoption of [URL="http://hudson-ci.org"]Hudson[/URL] continues in many (or should I say all?) fronts. At some point it seemed to be mostly just Sun, but now it is Oracle and a whole cast of other companies and groups.
[IMG]http://blogs.sun.com/theaquarium/resource/HaaS-CloudBees-173_100px.png[/IMG] Today's addition to these movement is [URL="http://www.cloudbees.com"]CloudBees[/URL] a startup whose [URL="http://www.cloudbees.com/company-team.cb"]team[/URL] includes a bunch of old friends, including [URL="http://sacha.labourey.com/"]Sacha[/URL], [URL="http://vivek.pandeys.org/"]VivekP[/URL] and [URL="http://bobbickel.blogspot.com"]BobB[/URL]. As [URL="http://bobbickel.blogspot.com/2010/08/cloudbees-launches-hudson-as-service.html"]Bob[/URL] and [URL="http://sacha.labourey.com/2010/08/26/cloudbees-is-now-live/"]Sacha[/URL] explain, CloudBees comes with two services DEV@cloud (SAAS for developers) and RUN@cloud (PAAS for production). The first piece - [URL="http://blog.cloudbees.com/2010/08/welcome-to-cloudbees.html"]today's announcement[/URL] - is about DEV@cloud, which is all around HaaS - Hudson As A Service. Very nice!
Welcome aboard, CloudBees - you can follow them at [URL="http://twitter.com/cloudbees"]@CloudBees[/URL]. [B]Added[/B] And here is [URL="http://hudson-labs.org/content/cloudbees-announce-hudson-service"]KK's welcome[/URL].
Hudson momentum is strong and wide. And does not show any significant negative impact from the [URL="http://blogs.sun.com/theaquarium/entry/acquisition_completed"]Oracle acquisition of Sun[/URL], nor from Kohsuke's departure to [URL="http://infradna.com"]his own start-up[/URL]. If anything, the wider number of participants has energized the community (see [URL="http://hudson-labs.org"]Hudson-Labs[/URL]) and seems to have solidified the role of Hudson as the leading CI product. Doing a quick recap...
[URL="http://blogs.sun.com/theaquarium/resource/HudsonInstallations.png"][IMG]http://blogs.sun.com/theaquarium/resource/HudsonInstallations-125_140px.png[/IMG][/URL] [URL="http://hudson-labs.org/users/abayer"]Andrew[/URL] just wrote a [URL="http://hudson-labs.org/content/hudson-anonymous-usage-data"]note[/URL] reporting on the (anonymous) data collected from Hudson via the Update Center (you can opt-out, see his post). The result shows a growing number of connected installations (~23K, see image at left), plus whatever is behind firewalls.
Coincidentally, [URL="http://weblogs.java.net/blog/283887"]John[/URL] has started a new (2010) [URL="http://www.wakaleo.com/resources/polls"]poll[/URL] on Build and CI tools, and Hudson currently shows >65% (although this is a self-selected poll, which has methodological issues, it is hard to argue with 65%).
There are many other signs of increased adoption. Some of the non-Oracle companies are [URL="http://mikeci.com/"]MikeCI[/URL], CollabNet ([URL="http://tab.open.collab.net/nonav/Hudson.html"]here[/URL] and [URL="http://www.collab.net/collabXchange/Hudson/"]here[/URL]), Sonatype ([URL="http://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Day_At_Googleplex_2010/Session_Abstracts#Next_Generation_Maven_Development_Stack"]here[/URL]), and JFrog ([URL="http://www.jfrog.org/pro-features.php"]here[/URL]). Hudson is also strong at Oracle - its internal use has continued to grow both at [URL="http://sun.com"]"Sun legacy"[/URL] and at [URL="http://oracle.com"]"Oracle classic"[/URL], and Winston Prakash very recently joined the Hudson@Oracle team and has already started contributing as part of the [URL="http://www.oracle.com/us/products/tools/index.html"]Development Tool Offering at Oracle[/URL].
And [URL="http://kohsuke.org"]Kohsuke[/URL] continues to be fully engaged, now with his [URL="http://infradna.com"]InfraDNA[/URL] hat, where he was recently joined by [URL="http://www.infradna.com/about"]Kedar[/URL].
As Sacha signs off... Onward!
PS. Add comments with links to other companies I missed and I'll rev the post. Now, or whenever you move out of stealth mode...
