With Bamboo & LiveRebel, DevOps harmony is truly emphasized: you can go from deployment to continuous updates of your JEE applications using your favourite JEE application server.
(PRWEB) May 23, 2012
Atlassian and ZeroTurnaround announce a plugin launch from two game-changing companies in the realm of Continuous Delivery, the Bamboo-LiveRebel plugin.
This new plugin harnesses the powers of Bamboo, Atlassian’s continuous integration and release management product, and LiveRebel, ZeroTurnaround’s award-winning application and server management solution for end-to-end application lifecycle management.
“Bamboo already has a rich plugin ecosystem and tight integration with Jira and Confluence, two of our most popular products”, commented Sarah Goff-Dupont, Product Marketing Manager for Bamboo. “According to a recent report on Developer Productivity, Bamboo claimed a 7% market share of the CI space, coming in second only to Jenkins/Hudson. "We're seeing more and more teams out-grow open source tools and upgrade to Bamboo, especially among existing Atlassian customers who have come to enjoy and trust our products.”
Bamboo is used to check out source code, build, package, test and finally update running applications with the just-built version. Then LiveRebel comes in to automate application deployments using an update method of choice, including instant hotpatching without breaking user sessions, something yet to be seen in the market.
“With Bamboo & LiveRebel, DevOps harmony is truly emphasized: you can go from deployment to continuous updates of your JEE applications using your favourite JEE application server. The user experience, speed and integration is excellent, and we’re excited to hear from users what they think too,” commented Toomas Römer, Director of Engineering at ZeroTurnaround.
LiveRebel 2.0 was released earlier in 2012 as a new way of managing the deployment pipeline. According to ZeroTurnaround, the primary concept behind LiveRebel is to eradicate 3AM Sunday-morning deployments by overworked operations staff. LiveRebel gives Ops teams the power to run deployments in a completely online, transactional, reversible and transparent pipeline. In the case of minor updates to applications, LiveRebel can even do an instant update without losing user sessions or server downtime, using the same technology found in JRebel, Java’s most popular redeploy eliminator.
So for those of us tired of having broken builds by unknown committers, a choppy release process and Operations teams still bleary-eyed from manual, non-transactional offline updates, say hello to Bamboo-LiveRebel. Watch the video: http://0t.ee/KI9xGh
