MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif.--(MaestroDev, a leading provider of enterprise software build and private cloud environments, today announced the launch of Maestro 3, the latest version of its complete enterprise build environment. Maestro 3 features an innovative application layer that orchestrates the broadest set of open source tools including Apache Maven, Apache Archiva, Hudson, Apache Continuum, Sonar, Selenium, Xen, Eucalyptus, Icinga and Puppet—in a single application interface. Its production-grade private cloud platform is specifically optimized for the internal build and deployment environments that Fortune 500 customers require.)--
“With Maestro 3 Compositions, we have learned from years of experience with Maven and applied the successful concepts of its build lifecycle and project conventions to a much wider scope to help teams bridge the DevOps 'gap,'”
Currently, build processes are often only automated through the build and release stages—and may not include testing or deployment. Maestro 3 introduces “Compositions” that allow standardization and automation across a much broader set of DevOps functions including build, test, report, enforce, release, manifest and deploy, as well as infrastructure provisioning for dedicated hardware and both the private and public cloud. For developers, Compositions deliver reliability and simplicity; build managers gain standardization across very large, distributed, agile development teams. Compositions allow enterprises to insert mandatory steps into a build, test or release process in order to ensure enforcement of business, legal and corporate policies.
"With Maestro 3 Compositions, we have learned from years of experience with Maven and applied the successful concepts of its build lifecycle and project conventions to a much wider scope to help teams bridge the DevOps 'gap,'" said Brett Porter, vice president of product development at MaestroDev and member of the Apache Maven project. "Combined with its aggregation of cloud-hosted and existing development infrastructure, Maestro 3 provides the ability to more effectively utilize available resources and to automate build, test and deployment operations with minimal configuration. Our own team is using this technology internally, alongside agile development practices, to facilitate the frequent releases and rapid feature growth we expect for Maestro 3."
Maestro 3 improves the enterprise build environment with:
Open Source—Maestro 3 integrates best-of-breed open source technologies for build, reporting, test, deploy and cloud into a single application interface where they are orchestrated and maintained in the Maestro 3 application layer. Open source components deliver continuous innovation and collaborative development of customer-driven requirements to the core functions.
Compositions—Maestro 3 Compositions are an advanced mechanism promoting standardization across the broadest range of activities from build to deploy, enforcing compliance with required business policies.
Private Cloud—Maestro 3 includes a complete, production-grade private and hybrid cloud platform specifically optimized for the internal build and deploy environments that Fortune 500 customers require.
DevOps / Infrastructure—Maestro 3 delivers unprecedented efficiency to developers and testers by providing instant, persisted availability of project-specific build, test and runtime target-environments with zero provisioning.
Agile Velocity—As Agile development increases code velocity, Maestro 3 extends the same speed improvements through the build lifecycle to deployment, realizing faster application go-to-market delivery.
“MaestroDev is pleased to offer the broadest platform for build-test-deploy and private cloud—managed within a single application interface,” said President Doug Dennington of MaestroDev. “We have worked closely with our customers to realize this next version of Maestro that evolves the scope of build automation tools to comprehend testing, reporting, enforcement and specifically the deployment phase, all within a secure private and hybrid cloud that is optimized for these operations. In our product previews, customers told us that Maestro 3 demonstrates unprecedented ease-of-use and speed for developers, literal cost-savings for build managers, and faster time-to-market for executives.”
MaestroDev provides the broadest software build and private cloud platform on the market, helping Global 2000 developers, build managers and executives get their applications to market more quickly, with better quality and immediate cost savings. Maestro 3 spans the scope of DevOps from build to deployment operations and includes a production-grade private cloud platform specifically optimized for the internal build and deployment environments that enterprise customers require. Organizations in the corporate, financial, government and healthcare sectors rely on MaestroDev for a single-interface approach to managing build-test-deploy and private cloud activities. Based on leading open source tools, Maestro 3 is developed and supported by active leaders and committers on the open source projects.
