Cloud Computing Management for Software Development
CollabNet CUBiT 2.0 Empowers Distributed Teams to Accelerate Development Cycles with Self-Service Build

Delivering on its mission to help software teams to simplify, collaborate, and innovate more efficiently at a lower cost, CollabNet announced the launch of CollabNet CUBiT 2.0. CUBiT 2.0 virtually eliminates the process of configuring servers for build and test by managing those configurations as 'profiles' across the application lifecycle. Applying the cloud computing model to distributed development, CollabNet CUBiT 2.0 enables teams to access on-demand servers from private corporate data centers or public clouds, to reduce development cycles and hardware expenses.

Developers spend a great deal of time configuring servers and aligning the software stacks throughout the application lifecycle -- an arduous task for server-intensive methodologies such as agile, scrum and continuous integration. CUBiT relieves these pain points by enabling code, build and test teams to accelerate development cycles, eliminate build and test errors, and gain flexibility in utilizing machines. It provides a secure way to reuse build and test profiles, reducing the likelihood of configuration errors that can delay software projects by months. In addition, CUBiT's self-service dynamic provisioning capabilities automate labor-intensive server provisioning and configuration that can take weeks. A financial services customer has decreased their time to build by 400 percent -- from months to days.

What's New: CollabNet CUBiT Enters the Cloud
According to The 451 Group, cloud computing is "a service model that combines a general organizing principle for IT delivery, infrastructure components, an architectural approach and an economic model -- basically, a confluence of grid computing, virtualization, utility computing, hosting and software as a service (SaaS)."

Now with CUBiT 2.0, teams can group and manage their computing resources as clouds. It enables development teams to access a global pool of on-demand build and test services. Teams manage their own library of software profiles and quickly can apply a configuration onto a machine, and version control the profile throughout development, build, and QA.

Clouds in CUBiT are groups of server pools from a corporate data center or from public clouds like Amazon EC2. Amazon EC2 is the public cloud initially supported by CUBiT 2.0 and can be used, for example, to extend resources temporarily and at a very low cost.

Other new features in CUBiT 2.0 include support for LDAP/Active Directory, and advanced accounting and chargeback capabilities tied to role-based access control for allocating costs per server and profile type.

Comments on CollabNet CUBiT
"CollabNet CUBiT reduces Ford's testing cycles by up to 50 percent. Because CUBiT virtualizes our test environment and manages ever-changing configurations, our release cycles have gone from four - six weeks to one week," said Marc Fecker, Director of Technology at FordDirect.com, a joint venture between Ford Motor Company and Ford Dealers. "CUBiT is critical because it enables our internal and external QA team worldwide to securely manage and track standardized sets of build and test services. We not only have complete traceability of the configuration changes being made, anyone has the ability to grab servers for running tests on-demand, as they need them, which saves us on hardware costs as well."

"At CollabNet, we're dedicated to easing the critical pain points of software development by helping teams to be more productive and responsive," said Tony de la Lama, CollabNet vice president of worldwide marketing and corporate strategy. "Teams are faced with increasingly complex software development cycles that require more flexible solutions. CUBiT 2.0 is specifically designed to meet these needs by bringing build and test operations to the cloud for fast, easy, self-service access."
