Shippable SaaS-ifies CI/CD on Red Hat's OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service

Shippable announced today that it has added support for OpenShift Gears in addition to Docker containers.

SAN FRANCISCO, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Hat Summit -- Shippable, a new and blazingly fast hosted continuous integration and deployment service, announced availability today for OpenShift by Red Hat, the award-winning Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering. This gives OpenShift developers a cutting edge system for quickly building and testing code and applications for the OpenShift environment.

Shippable combines secure and dedicated containers, called Minions, with breakthroughs in architecture that dramatically speed up the process of building and testing code, even against multiple versions at the same time. Developers can set up CI for their codebase in a couple of minutes, and for each code commit after that, Shippable will run an integration build and the entire test suite, and notify them about the results.

"Shippable's PaaS-based, hosted CI/CD service will give OpenShift customers a true SaaS solution as opposed to spending the Gears to host a CI server themselves, and then spending engineering time configuring and maintaining it. We are thrilled that Shippable will feature their solutions in the OpenShift Marketplace," said Chris Morgan, Technical Director, OpenShift Partner Ecosystem, Red Hat. 

"Modern devops in enterprises are looking for better and faster ways of delivering results. By intelligently leveraging the container technology pioneered by Docker and OpenShift , we are fundamentally changing the CI/CD process by not only cutting time and expense but also making the catchphrase 'build once run anywhere' ring true," said Avi Cavale, co-founder and CEO of Shippable.

Red Hat has made two interesting announcements in the last few months related to OpenShift. First, they announced a collaboration with Docker around Linux Container technology, enabling Red Hat to create a simpler, more secure, lightweight, and portable environment for applications. Second, they also added support for .NET in OpenShift Origin, the open source project that serves as the upstream for both OpenShift Online and OpenShift Enterprise. This makes OpenShift a holistic platform that is viable for both enterprises and startups. Shippable natively supports both Docker and .NET, aligning with both of these innovations in OpenShift Origin.

To support OpenShift natively, the Shippable team had to port their entire codebase in a couple of weeks. "We were only able to develop this so quickly because we used Shippable to build Shippable," says CEO Avi Cavale "Moving from one platform to an entirely new platform was not an insignificant task and this is a great example of how our solution helps you ship quality code faster. We hope Shippable becomes the default CI for OpenShift users."

Shippable launched in February on Docker to great reviews. CTO of StockTwits, Chris Corriveau said, "If your goal is to commit code often, test it, and ship to production as fast as possible to keep up with your company's changing features and initiatives, there is no better product than Shippable!"
