CloudBees acquires FoxWeave, embeds integration services

By : |July 25, 2013 0

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM: CloudBees Inc., the Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader, today announced the acquisition of FoxWeave, a provider of cloud-based data integration services.

The acquisition brings native data migration and synchronisation services to the CloudBees Platform, and simplifies the way developers can compose services and weave them together with PaaS-hosted application logic – or what CloudBees calls app-centric integration. The acquisition continues the company’s strong growth with the addition of a key platform investment.

Applications today are increasingly part of the “subscription economy,” making use of data from many sources and interacting with hosted services. This is particularly true of new applications being built in the cloud.

Connecting to many data sources and services, migrating and mapping data between them, and keeping systems in sync is an ongoing source of pain that the FoxWeave technology relieves, often without having to write any code.

The acquisition of FoxWeave establishes CloudBees as the first PaaS vendor to offer native facilities for service and data integration, further upping the game on the time-to-market advantage of PaaS and bringing an app-centric integration view to developers.

“Every business today has more than the traditional set of on-premise data stores. Businesses are also connected with a fast growing number of critical SaaS services, too,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO, CloudBees.

“Moving and synchronising data between these services using a growing set of APIs is an ongoing chore – a really vexing problem that has to be solved. With FoxWeave, CloudBees now offers a service that makes integrations easy to setup and maintain. Not only can users quickly integrate these services’ data streams and applications, but developers can easily incorporate them into applications. This is what the coupling of the FoxWeave service and the CloudBees PaaS enables – and this capability is absolutely unique in the market today,” added Labourey.
