New enhancements in CloudBees Accelerator version 11.1 cut build and test cycle times even further

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–DEVOPS WORLD | JENKINS WORLDCloudBees®, the enterprise DevOps leader powering the continuous economy, today introduced new enhancements for its CloudBees Accelerator™ platform that will help IT teams get products to market even faster. For the first time, teams can use the industry-leading acceleration platform to burst workloads to all three major cloud providers and shorten build and test times for devices running the new Android Q operating system from hours to minutes.

CloudBees Accelerator 11.1 dramatically accelerates build, QA and testing cycles by distributing the build over a large cluster of inexpensive servers. Adding support for cloud bursting on Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform and for the development of Android Q devices, it will help organizations get to market quicker and create more time for experimentation and iteration.

Trying to accelerate build and test cycles with dedicated build clouds is inefficient. CloudBees Accelerator previously enabled developers to burst workloads from a data center or private cloud onto an AWS cloud platform, enabling them to cut build and test times in those environments. Now, with support for Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform, teams can shift workloads to any of the three major cloud providers on-demand, giving them greater efficiency and eliminating vendor lock-in.

Meanwhile, Android device makers are under huge time – and cost – pressures to release new devices concurrently with Android Q, the new Android operating system now in beta and scheduled for release in Q3 2019. Using CloudBees Accelerator, they can shorten their build and test times to minutes instead of hours, allowing them to get to market faster and potentially avoid fines for releasing devices after the delivery date of a new Android system.

CloudBees Accelerator 11.1 also includes the following new features:

  • Support for the SSL and TLS cryptographic protocols – This ensures secure communication between EMake tools – which control executables and other non-source files of a program from the program’s source files – and agent components, making CloudBees Accelerator public-cloud ready. This enables security-sensitive organizations in financial services and other vertical industries to ensure their builds aren’t hacked or intercepted.
  • Improvements to CloudBees Electrify™ – This allows users to accelerate non-EMake build tools, such as MSBuild and Scons.
  • Improvements for the Linux Foundation’s Yocto Project – The Yocto Project is an open source project aimed at producing tools and processes that enable the creation of Linux distributions for embedded and IoT software that are independent of the underlying architecture of the embedded hardware. CloudBees Accelerator enables developers to at least triple the speeds of builds using BitBake build tools or Buildroot files and patches.
  • Improvements to out-of-the-box CloudBees Accelerator support for Windows with native support for distributing and caching Visual Studio projects.

“Shortening the time to market and creating more flexibility is what digital transformation is all about,” said Shawn Ahmed, vice president of product marketing, CloudBees. “This new version of CloudBees Accelerator enables all companies, especially Android device manufacturers, to drive their delivery processes faster than ever. It also gives them more flexibility to embrace multi-cloud environments by using whatever cloud provider they choose for build and test acceleration.”

UBS Group AG and Merrill Lynch Are Being Investigated for Sales of Unsuitable Investments

Reading Time: 1 minute

OKLAHOMA CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ClassAction–Federman & Sherwood has initiated an investigation of UBS Group AG and Merrill Lynch. UBS Group AG (NYSE: UBS) sold a very complex investment strategy called Yield Enhancement Strategy (YES). Merrill Lynch sold a similar product called the Collateral Yield Enhancement Strategy (CYES). The primary strategy of these complex trading strategies, both of which utilized leverage and borrowed money putting investors at further risk, is called an “Iron Condor”. This involves simultaneously entering into multiple option positions at the same time while essentially betting on the volatility of the market and certain indexes. These products, which had very high commissions, were peddled to retail customers with a focus on widows, retirees and elderly looking for yield. The brokerage firms apparent excuse is that the retail customers were given offering documents that “fully” explained the investments and therefore accepted the risk while relying on their brokers assurances that the investments were suitable. Federman & Sherwood, a boutique securities litigation law firm with over 37 years of experience, is investigating both UBS and Merrill Lynch for their sales practices in selling unsuitable investments.

If you have information about UBS or Merrill Lynch sales practices or invested in these highly-leveraged products and lost money, please contact William Federman at (405) 235-1560 or by email wbf@federmanlaw.com. Federman & Sherwood has extensive nationwide experience in representing investors in securities, derivative and merger-related shareholder class actions, and has been appointed as lead counsel in multiple complex cases.
