JFrog, a leading company in DevOps has acquired Shippable– a cloud-based startup that focuses on Kubernetes-ready continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD), helping developers to ship code and deliver app and microservices updates. This strategic acquisition- JFrog’s fifth- aims at providing customers with a “complete, integrated DevOps pipeline solution”.
The collaboration between JFrog and Shippable will allow users to automate their development processes right from the time the code is committed all the way to production.
Shlomi Ben Haim, Co-founder, and CEO of JFrog, says in the official press release that “The modern DevOps landscape requires ever-faster delivery with more and more automation. Shippable’s outstanding hybrid and cloud native technologies will incorporate yet another best-of-breed solution into the JFrog platform. Coupled with our commitments to universality and freedom of choice, developers can expect a superior out-of-the-box DevOps platform with the greatest flexibility to meet their DevOps needs.”
According to an email sent to Packt Hub, JFrog, will now allow developers to have a completely integrated DevOps pipeline with JFrog, while still retaining the full freedom to choose their own solutions in JFrog’s universal DevOps model. The plan is to release the first technology integrations with JFrog Enterprise+ this coming summer, and a full integration by Q3 of this year. According to JFrog, this acquisition will result in a more automated, complete, open and secure DevOps solution in the market.
This is just another victory for JFrog. JFrog has previously announced a $165 million Series D funding. Last year, the company also launched JFrog Xray, a binary analysis tool that performs recursive security scans and dependency analyses on all standard software package and container types.
Avi Cavale, founder and CEO of Shippable, says that Shippable users and customers will now “have access to leading security, binary management and other high-powered enterprise tools in the end-to-end JFrog Platform”, and that the combined forces of JFrog and Shippable can make full DevOps automation from code to production a reality.
