LONDON, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Wercker, the Docker-native developer automation platform, has today launched Virtual Private Pipelines (VPP), a paid SaaS offering aimed at helping application development teams move faster.
VPP helps businesses adopt a true cloud-native approach, and in doing so tackle software development inefficiencies, enabling them to move faster, be more competitive and save costs.
VPP provides customers with a fully managed, SaaS-based CI/CD automation toolchain. It features multiple levels of scalable concurrency within dedicated network-isolated instances and professional support.
Wayne Gibbins, Chief Commercial Officer at Wercker, said, "We're excited to launch VPP, wrapping up our previous product iterations and customer trials over the past two years into one solution, delivering the tooling and experience that modern developer teams sorely need. Wercker is the automation glue in the cloud-native movement, marked by the convergence of microservices, Docker and container orchestration."
Developers using Wercker can deploy to all major cloud providers, and the platform is compatible with all container orchestration tools. In particular, Wercker is optimised for teams deploying to Kubernetes, Google's production-grade container orchestration tool, which is also used by Wercker.
The Wercker platform consists of a SaaS interface as well as a Command Line Interface (CLI), which the company open-sourced in January 2016. Wercker also provides extensibility through its API and open marketplace, where users can create and share custom automation workflows. Wercker supports a microservice architecture with features like API contract testing with the ability to spin up multiple services within Docker containers for pre-deployment testing between services.
Wercker is an ideal solution for cutting-edge development teams within companies of all sizes. It is targeted at teams looking for a modern, Docker-native automation toolchain which supports microservices and cloud-native orchestration such as Kubernetes.
David Aronchick, Kubernetes Product Manager at Google, added, "Both Kubernetes and Wercker strive to make containers simple and powerful. We're excited to see how Wercker can supercharge development with automation pipelines to build and test containers that deploy to Kubernetes."
Wercker also recently relaunched its website with enhanced content and tutorials for Kubernetes and leading cloud vendors.
Wercker's Virtual Private Pipelines executes automation workloads on a fully managed, network-isolated stack. Organisations can scale their availability by opting for increased concurrency. That concurrency can be used to execute simultaneous workloads from different developers and teams or can be used to execute branched workflows to support use cases like parallel testing. The single tenancy nature of the system ensures organisations don't queue outside of their own organisation, can scale within seconds and have support and advice from the Wercker solutions team.
Kubernetes was built on a decade of Google's experience running production workloads at scale, and has become one of the world's most advanced container schedulers. Wercker is designed to integrate seamlessly with Kubernetes, allowing developers to move faster and do more.
Wercker is a container-centric automation platform used to develop, build, test and deploy cloud-native applications. Wercker was founded in 2011 and has offices in San Francisco, London and Amsterdam. Wercker is used by organisations deploying software applications to the cloud, fully supports microservices, is Docker-native and optimised for schedulers like Kubernetes. Wercker is led by executive team Micha Hernandez van Leuffen (CEO), Andy Smith (CTO) and Wayne Gibbins (CCO) and has raised $7.9 million in venture capital funding.
