Shippable V2 - What works differently from V1?

Posted by Manisha Sahasrabudhe on September 10, 2014

Thanks to all our customers who were patient with us as we ironed out the migration from our V1 platform to V2 platform. We hit some unexpected road bumps due to key management, expired tokens, etc but most of the resulting chaos has settled down now and we’re (mostly) back to business as usual. 

I am sure you will love all the new stuff that V2 brings to the table, but I will write another blog post for that very shortly. In this one, I want to focus on explaining some changes between V1 and V2 and why we made them.

Press Release : Shippable 'ships' a new platform to continuously deliver Docker-ized applications

Posted by Manisha Sahasrabudhe on September 09, 2014

SEATTLE – September 9, 2014 – Shippable, a Seattle-based startup focused on increasing developer efficiency, today announced its version 2.0 release – a new enterprise-grade delivery platform that helps software teams innovate faster by docker-izing their workflows and automating application lifecycles from code to production. The new platform is the first for containerized workflows and is engineered to leverage Docker containers to the fullest, increasing agility in the software development lifecycle (SDLC). Its rich feature set includes on-demand, containerized dev/test environments that are exact replicas of the production environment, a continuous delivery pipeline for application containers, and versioning of application containers with a one-click upgrade or rollback to any version.

“Container-based development is becoming essential for DevOps teams because it enables application development to move more quickly and efficiently,” said Al Hilwa, program director, application development software, IDC. “Enterprises adopting agile practices and seeking options for continuous development and delivery will find that workflow containerization solutions like Shippable will ultimately lead to better software quality.”
