Dominion Marine Media signs cloud-computing deal

Dominion Marine Media, the division of Dominion Enterprises that operates YachtWorld, Boat Trader, Boats.com and Cosas De Barcos, signed a new partnership with continuous integration platform provider CloudBees.

Dominion Marine Media said its websites serve more than 38 million unique visitors annually in six languages in 171 countries. Its team of developers faces a constant challenge in ensuring consistency across projects and keeping infrastructure maintenance overheads to a minimum. As a result, Dominion Marine Media decided to move away from hosting and maintaining its own CI infrastructure and to use the CloudBees-hosted solution instead.

“The rate of change in every industry is constantly increasing, so we have to be more nimble to give our customers and consumers the best tools and services to buy and sell boats,” Dominion Marine Media vice president of technology Marius de Beer said in a statement. “The reduced overhead, reduced time to market and increased confidence we gain by using CloudBees allow us to do exactly that.”

Dominion Marine Media engineering manager Mike Marich said DEV@cloud enables its developers to rapidly set up new projects and concentrate on development, not infrastructure.

“This means we spend much less time dealing with build issues and more time doing the actual development, which is the core of our business," he said.
