CloudBees enterprise PaaS bites the dust
See the original posting on JavaWorld
CloudBees has decided to pull the plug on Run@Cloud, its PaaS aimed at enterprise Java developers. Instead, the company is concentrating on hosted professional editions of Jenkins, the open source continuous integration/deployment system, along with a partnership with Pivotal.
This is the latest sign of tough times in the enterprise public PaaS space. Many of the items businesses formerly would have relegated to an infrastructure-like public PaaS are now accomplished through open source solutions like Pivotal’s CloudFoundry or Red Hat’s OpenShift.
