JFrog, the popular DevOps startup, now valued at over $ 1 billion. After raising $ 165 million Last October, taking a step to expanding the tools and services it provides to developers on its software operating platform: Shippable, based continuous integration and delivery platform (CI / CD) that developers use to submit code and deliver app and microservices updates and plans to integrate it into its Enterprise + platform.
The terms of the agreement – JFrogs fifth acquisition – is not disclosed, said Shlomi Ben Haim, Jfag's co-founder and CEO of an interview. However, from what I understand it was in the ballpark for Shippables latest valuation, which was $ 42.6 million back in 201
Shippable employees attended JFrog and are planning to release the first integrations with Enterprise + this coming summer and full integration in Q3 this year.
Shippable, founded in 2013, is named early as a supplier of a container-based continuous integration and delivery platform based on Docker containers, but since Kubernetes has taken over Docker in containerized implementations, startup had also shifted its focus beyond Docker containers .  The acquisition is about the consolidation in the world of DevOps, where developers and organizations are looking for end-to-end tools, not only to help develop, update, and run their apps and microservices, but for Providing security and more – or at least creating DevOps tools makers – will be what they themselves seem to grow their margins and business.
As more and more organizations are running their opertions like apps and microServices, DevOps has increased in prominence and offered both toolkits from self-employed as well as those whose infrastructure is touched and used by DevOp's tools. This means that a company like JFrog has a growing pool of competitors that includes not only Docker, Sonatype and GitLab, but also AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Azure and "The Red Hats of the World", with Ben Haim's words.
For Shippable customers, integration will give them access to security, binary management and other business development tools.
"We are thrilled to join the JFrog family and further the vision of Liquid Software," said Avi Cavale, founder and CEO of Shippable, in a statement. "Shippable users and customers have long enjoyed our next generation technology, but now have access to leading-edge security, binary management and other high-performance enterprise tools in the end-to-end JFrog platform. This is truly exciting as the combined forces of JFrog and Shippable can Make full DevOps automation from code to production to reality. "
On JFrog's site, the company uses Shippable to provide a built-in CI / CD tool directly within JFrog.
"Before most users use Jenkins, Circle CI and other CI / CD automation tools," said Ben Haim. "But what you begin to see in the broader market is the gradual consolidation of CI tools into the code store."
He emphasized that this will not mean changes for developers who are already happy to use Jenkins or other integrations: just that it will now offer a native solution that will be offered with them (presumably both with lighter functionality and competitive prices).
Today, JFrog has 5,000 paying customers, up from 4,500 in October, including "most of the Fortune 500," with market customers such as. Apple and Adobe, but also banks, health organizations, and insurance companies – "conservative businesses," said Ben Haim, who now also understands the importance of using DevOps.
