CloudBees said that it wants to help developers release software with more flexibility and less risk with the acquisition of the secure feature management company Rollout. Rollout offers an enterprise-grade feature flags capability, with robust deployment rules and audience segmentation and an experimentation framework for controlling which audiences are exposed to which features.
 
"Continuous delivery is increasingly enabled by having feature flags to enable or disable a feature. Releasing software is inherently risky in most situations,and feature flags decouple the physical release from the enabling of features." said Brian Nash " Rollout moves CloudBees’ footprint into the production deployment (and runtime) of applications (all kinds, mobile, web, services) deepening our relationship with our customers, by enabling them to shift their pipeline further right. Rollout allows us to help people speed up safe software deliveries for all platforms."
 
CloudBees said that, with this acquisition, Rollout customers will benefit from the same powerful Rollout feature flags capability that is now supported by the CloudBees organization. And, in the future, they will also benefit from more powerful integration of their feature flags with their CI/CD system as part of a full software delivery management system.
 
And, on the other hand, CloudBees customers will benefit by having available a powerful feature flags capability that is supported by the same CloudBees organization they already trust. And, in the future, they will also benefit from more powerful integration of their feature flags with their CI/CD system and in the longer term as part of a full software delivery management system.
