CloudBees develops commercial offerings based on Jenkins CI, an open source job execution monitoring platform

Belgium-based CloudBees has secured $23.5m in a series D funding round led by Matrix Partners, Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Verizon Ventures. The firm, which has its roots as a java platform as a service, said it plans to use the funding to accelerate development of its Jenkins-based enterprise offerings.

Blue Cloud Ventures, JBoss alumnus Bob Bickel and Marc Fleury, and Ed Bugnion, co-founder of VMware, were among the others that invested in the latest round.

The investment, which brings the total investment in CloudBees to just under $50m, will be used to fund product development, marketing, sales and professional services initiatives at the firm; it also intends to invest more in “strategic partnerships” in a bid to broaden its range of customers.

“We will use the additional capital to serve the growing demand for Jenkins-based solutions worldwide, to continue to capture market share and to further cement our position as the continuous delivery leader,” said Sacha Labourey, founder and chief executive officer of CloudBees.

CloudBees was originally founded as a java platform as a service, but the company now focuses almost exclusively on providing solutions based on Jenkins CI, which includes a cloud-based version of the continuous integration and job execution monitoring platform. Some of the firm’s customers include Fidelity, Lufthansa, Fannie Mae, The Federal Reserve, Hyatt Hotels, Disney, PG&E, Northrup Grumman, USDA, and Robert Bosch.
