CloudBees has launched new versions of its Flow and Accelerator platforms. The updates revolve around automation and the addition of support for secure communication and Android Q.

Version 9.1 of Flow receives new updates to increase the efficiency of developer teams by orchestrating and automating the life cycle of software releases, pipelines and deployments, writes Silicon Angle. It does this by using analytics and insights to track and improve results.

The new release of Flow uses the former ElectricFlow orchestration platform, which CloudBees acquired when it acquired Electric Cloud.

Release Command Centers

The new features are designed to further optimize and customize the orchestration process, providing more personalized dashboards, as well as new archiving for data and more real-time visibility on the way to release.

The dashboards – called Release Command Centers – enable users to display their own personalized data, highlight a release pipeline and better represent their own release process. In addition, users can archive older data to the system to prevent regulatory and compliance issues.

Users also get full insight into the inventory that is being deployed at any given time. In this way, users get full insight into how a release runs and what the progress is. In addition, there will be more flexibility and control for the execution of release pipelines, whereby tasks can also be carried out in other orders and tasks can be pre-programmed for future stages.


CloudBees Accelerator will also receive a new version. This platform helps DevOps teams bring products to market faster, by bursting workloads to cloud providers. Previously, this was only possible from a data centre or private cloud to the AWS platform. However, version 11.1 also comes with support for Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure.

DevOps teams can also shorten quality assurance, test cycles and build times for Android devices. Support for Android Q, which is yet to be launched, has also been added to this list. According to CloudBees itself, Accelerator can shorten the construction time from hours to minutes.

Accelerator also receives support for secure communication via a secure socket layer and transport security layer cryptographic channels. In this way, it should be prevented that data is intercepted.
