Boulder, CO – February 19, 2014 – JumpCloud®, the first Directory-as-a-Service® platform, today announced the general commercial availability of it’s automated server management solution. JumpCloud launched its automated server management solution last September at the prestigious TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco event as a Startup Battlefield finalist.

“The cloud’s elasticity and agility has enabled several new operational models such as DevOps, an IT model that blurs the lines between development and IT operations, as well as consolidates historically segregated management functions to improve efficiency and responsiveness,” said Rich Mogull, CEO of Securosis, in What CISOs Need to Know About Cloud Computing.
JumpCloud’s mission is to automate the manual, tedious tasks of managing servers so that DevOps and IT pros can focus on what makes their business tick: innovation. JumpCloud has built a platform to execute these tasks, including SSH/privileged user management, admin activity monitoring, patch detection, and compliance. JumpCloud supports servers in the cloud, data center, colo, or hosted as VMs.
JumpCloud customers can now choose to extend their access to critical server management functionality for as little as $10 per month per server, as well as benefit from an hourly pricing rate per server should that be a better match for their scalable infrastructure. As part of the commercial plans, JumpCloud customers receive access to its best-in-class functionality, extended data retention, and phone support.

After automating with JumpCloud, we don’t have to spend cycles on many of our daily manual server management tasks such as managing users and tracking privileged commands,” said Scott Brown, CEO of Bounce.IO. “It is simple and efficient, yet powerful. And, because we can focus on delivering our product and not on tedious maintenance tasks, its return on investment was almost immediate.”
