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

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.”

Shippable downtime today - more details

At around 12PM UTC yesterday, our build infrastructure began experiencing issues. The root cause was identified to be a problem with the Docker installations on our minion hosts. Although the problem was identified quickly, the recovery process resulted in nearly 4 hours of down time during which your builds and minion provisioning requests stayed queued. The problem has been fully resolved and the system is now running normally.

Dear Ping-Pong, thanks a million (or two)! Love, Shippable

It all started at last year’s GeekWire ping pong and anniversary bash.

I had just founded my company, Qhode (now called Shippable). We were building a geeky product, a continuous integration and deployment service targeted at software developers. Even though we were solving a real problem, I had no idea how to market it.

I asked myself: How will people even find out about us?
