2018. Apple buys continuous integration service Buddybuild

Apple has acquired Buddybuild, an app tools startup that describes itself as “mobile iteration platform” focused on continuous integration and debugging tools — essentially giving an app development team a simple workflow for iterating and pushing their apps out into the world through GitHub, BitBucket or GitLab. As part of the acquisition, Buddybuild will be rolled into Xcode, Apple’s suite of development tools for iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS, although Apple and Buddybuild have not given a specific timeline of when that will happen.

2015. Continuous integration provider Cloudbees raises $23.5 million

Cloudbees, the PaaS company that recently transitioned into a continuous integration company, now has $23.5 million in Series D money to fund expanded sales and marketing in more geographies. Cloudbees' Jenkins-based solution is used mostly in the medium and large part of the Small-Medium-Large company spectrum and now needs to focus on startups and small companies as well Jenkins is the open-source continuous integration (CI) tool that is the centerpiece of Cloudbees’ PaaS-to-CI pivot. The rationale for that move was the feeling that more companies were ready to use Jenkins and associated services across public and private clouds, as well as in their own server rooms, than were ready to throw in with a public Platform as a Service.

2014. Continuous integration tool Shippable raises $8M

Shippable, which offers a containerized continuous integration and delivery platform based on Docker containers, raised an $8 million Series A round. The company plans to use the additional funding to continue its push into the enterprise, which in many ways is only now starting to adopt continuous integration. What makes Shippable’s solution stand out is that it leverages containers to create a faster, easier-to-use and — maybe even more importantly — cheaper solution for its customers who can host its service both in their own data centers or on a public cloud. Continuous integration includes running unit tests on all of the code, and Shippable uses containers to allow it to quickly grow or shrink these virtual test labs depending on workloads. Because these containers are essentially replicas of the ones that are used in production, it’s easy to ensure that the development and test environments match the production setup.
