CloudBees vs Google App Engine: What are the differences?

What is CloudBees? Enterprise Jenkins and DevOps. Enables organizations to build, test and deploy applications to production, utilizing continuous delivery practices. They are focused solely on Jenkins as a tool for continuous delivery both on-premises and in the cloud.

What is Google App Engine? Build web applications on the same scalable systems that power Google applications. Google has a reputation for highly reliable, high performance infrastructure. With App Engine you can take advantage of the 10 years of knowledge Google has in running massively scalable, performance driven systems. App Engine applications are easy to build, easy to maintain, and easy to scale as your traffic and data storage needs grow.

CloudBees and Google App Engine can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by CloudBees are:

  • Hosted CI/CD as a Service
  • Flexible and governed software delivery automation
  • Starter Kit

On the other hand, Google App Engine provides the following key features:

  • Zero to sixty: Scale your app automatically without worrying about managing machines.
  • Supercharged APIs: Supercharge your app with services such as Task Queue, XMPP, and Cloud SQL, all powered by the same infrastructure that powers the Google services you use every day.
  • You're in control: Manage your application with a simple, web-based dashboard allowing you to customize your app's performance.

Snapchat, Accenture, and Movielala are some of the popular companies that use Google App Engine, whereas CloudBees is used by Netflix, Randstad, and Watchguard Technologies, Inc.. Google App Engine has a broader approval, being mentioned in 481 company stacks & 343 developers stacks; compared to CloudBees, which is listed in 3 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to CloudBees and Google App Engine?
Jenkins
In a nutshell Jenkins CI is the leading open-source continuous integration server. Built with Java, it provides over 300 plugins to support building and testing virtually any project.
CircleCI
Continuous integration and delivery platform helps software teams rapidly release code with confidence by automating the build, test, and deploy process. Offers a modern software development platform that lets teams ramp.
Bamboo
Focus on coding and count on Bamboo as your CI and build server! Create multi-stage build plans, set up triggers to start builds upon commits, and assign agents to your critical builds and deployments.
Azure DevOps
Azure DevOps provides unlimited private Git hosting, cloud build for continuous integration, agile planning, and release management for continuous delivery to the cloud and on-premises. Includes broad IDE support.
GitLab
GitLab offers git repository management, code reviews, issue tracking, activity feeds and wikis. Enterprises install GitLab on-premise and connect it with LDAP and Active Directory servers for secure authentication and authorization. A single GitLab server can handle more than 25,000 users but it is also possible to create a high availability setup with multiple active servers.

Reviews of CloudBees and Google App Engine
Review of
Google App Engine

With Cloud Endpoints you can create and deploy mobile backend in one hour or less. And it is free (until you need extra scale). I would not recommend to use Java - python is faster and has all new appengine features.

Pros: everything is in one place: task queue, cron, backend instances for data processing, datastore, mapreduce. Cons: you cannot easily move your code from GAE. Even with special 3rd party services.

How developers use CloudBees and Google App Engine

Google App Engine

PaaS for back-end components, including external data ingestion APIs, front-end web service APIs, hosting of static front-end application assets, back-end data processing pipeline microservices, APIs to storage infrastructure (Cloud SQL and Memcached), and data processing pipeline task queues and cron jobs. Task queue fan-out and auto-scaling of back-end microservice instances provide parallelism for high velocity data processing.

checking a swap require a lot of cpu resource, roster normally come out same day of month, every month, at a particular time. Which make very high spike, our flag ship product, iSwap, with the capability looking swap possibility with 10000 other rosters base on user critieria, you need a cloud computing give you this magnitude of computing power. gae did it nicely, user friendly, easy to you, low cost.
