Jenkins is a Java based, open source automation server that is nearly synonymous with Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. Software development teams use it to be more efficient by building, testing, and deploying updates to software projects automatically and enabling more changes to be integrated more frequently, with fewer problems.
Jenkins has been integral to the rise of DevOps-based software development. It is capable of organizing many different tools such as Chef, Puppet, and Docker into a single pipeline. At each stage, Jenkins can initiate and monitor the execution of a task, check the outcome, and initiate the next stage. Its large ecosystem of plugins enables it to be used for projects with nearly any combination of SCM tools, runtimes, and databases.

Bitnami packages applications following industry standards, and continuously monitors all components and libraries for vulnerabilities and application updates. When any security threat or update is identified, Bitnami automatically repackages the applications and pushes the latest versions to the cloud marketplaces.
