Electric Cloud, the leader in enterprise Continuous Delivery, today announced the availability of the Enterprise DevOps Cloud solution for VMware vCloud® AirTM. Now, developers and IT operations teams have a common platform that brings accelerated software delivery to organizations using public, private or hybrid cloud services from industry leader VMware. The solution automates software build, test, deployment and release tasks in the cloud, giving teams shared control and visibility of their distributed infrastructure from a single console. This allows them to respond faster to market demands while reducing costs and management overhead.

“The Dev/Test cloud, popularized by developers, was intended to help accelerate software delivery. However, configuration mismatches between Dev/Test and production, as well as security and cost concerns, created friction in the software development lifecycle,” said Steve Brodie, CEO of Electric Cloud. “VMware’s vCloud Air is a fantastic platform for both Dev/Test and production workloads. When combined with the orchestration capabilities of Electric Cloud, VMware customers now have a flexible and powerful Dev/Test/Ops cloud that makes Continuous Delivery a simple, predictable process.”

VMware vCloud Air is a secure, dedicated hybrid cloud service operated by VMware, built on the trusted foundation of VMware vSphere®. The service supports existing workloads and third party applications, as well as new application development, giving IT a common platform for seamlessly extending its data center into the cloud.

Electric Cloud helps software organizations deliver better software faster by adopting Continuous Delivery. Often referred to as the “new Agile,” Continuous Delivery drives strategic value by allowing more frequent, predictable and higher quality software releases. Continuous Delivery solutions from Electric Cloud directly address the reliability and risk issues inherent in software releases by automating build, test and deployment activities to eliminate bottlenecks and provide real-time visibility.

“Enterprise developers, QA and IT operations teams need to work together to deliver software faster with lower costs and higher quality,” said Ajay Patel, vice president of Application Services, vCloud Air, VMware. “Electric Cloud’s DevOps orchestration and Continuous Delivery solutions make it easier for VMware vCloud® Air™ customers to build and release quality applications.”

Electric Cloud and VMWare will demonstrate the new Enterprise DevOps Cloud solution for Continuous Delivery at VMworld, August 24th – 28th, Moscone Center, San Francisco.
