MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--During today’s all-virtual DeveloperWeek expo and conference, Codefresh was honored with a 2021 DEVIES Award for its Codefresh Runner, a cloud-native solution that allows DevOps teams to selectively run pipelines, deployments and versioning on their own Kubernetes clusters no matter where they are: behind a firewall, on site, or the virtual private cloud.
The DEVIES recognize excellence in developer tools, products and technology. The Runner, which was released in July 2020, won for developer and engineering innovation in the DevOps category. It’s a meaningful win since products are judged on technical innovation, adoption, and reception in the developer technology industry and by the developer community. DeveloperWeek 2021, the world’s largest developer and engineering conference and expo, with more than 8,000 participants, continues through tomorrow.
Dan Garfield, Codefresh’s Chief Open Source Officer, said, “The Runner, combined with our GitOps offering, opens up so many possibilities for managing clusters and providing services in hospitals, in banking, and defense. The security and low-maintenance overhead has made it a hit.”
The 2021 DEVIES Awards received hundreds of nominations. Winners were determined based on three criteria: attracting notable attention and awareness in the software industry; general regard and adoption by the developer, engineering, and IT communities; and, being a technical leader in its sector for innovation.
"Developer tools and solutions are continuing to grow in their importance to the global technology industry. Codefresh is a great example of the new era of products and services allowing developers and engineers to have a greater impact on a company's bottom line and overall efficiency,” said Geoff Domoracki, CEO of DevNetwork, producer of DeveloperWeek and the 2021 DEVIES Awards.
