ProfitBricks Courts DevOps Users with New Community Site, REST API and Multi-Cloud Library Support
San Antonio, TX, 04/15/2015 – ProfitBricks, the provider of painless cloud infrastructure IaaS, announced today the launch of its new DevOps Central and REST API, along with support for three multi-cloud libraries and a Python SDK. This, combined with its already existing SOAP API and its new RESTful API, moves ProfitBricks into a position to better serve the DevOps community and provide the ability to automate cloud infrastructure in a multi-cloud world.
Following this momentum, ProfitBricks is also today introducing several libraries that enable developers to use their favorite language to code against its RESTful and SOAP APIs. This development provides users with multi-cloud support and enhances the portability of DevOps automation across clouds now supporting ProfitBricks. The libraries include: LibCloud, a Python library using a unified API; Fog, a Ruby cloud services library; and jclouds, a Java language multi-cloud library. ProfitBricks is also releasing a Python SDK, for coding against its new REST API, which both abstracts and provides complete coverage for all API functions. To add to this clear trajectory, the company plans to release additional libraries over the course of the next few months.
Growing the DevOps Community for Painless Cloud Infrastructure
Through the integration of these languages and the enhancement of its rapidly-growing DevOps community, ProfitBricks continues to build a cohesive environment that promotes easy migration to the cloud. In line with its painless cloud infrastructure philosophy, these developer and operations infrastructure automation enhancements exemplify the cloud provider’s dedication to making the transition to the cloud as easy as possible for both developers and operations professionals.
“At the core of everything we architect and release, ProfitBricks is committed to providing its customers with a seamless experience, alleviating both granular and large-scale stress points in cloud migration and operations,” said Achim Weiss, Co-founder and CEO of ProfitBricks. “Our DevOps Central website is already a huge success, and we are in position to release additional software development kits to better service this audience. We anticipate our expansive library launch to add a tremendous amount of value to our DevOps community, and to all of our clients.”
Passionate Community Joined in Conversation
ProfitBricks’ DevOps Central is a community comprised of passionate DevOps practitioners, joining in a conversation to read and document the most popular DevOps projects.

“It’s important that our clients have the resources available to communicate and share strategies,” continued Weiss. “Not only does DevOps Central benefit ProfitBricks’ users, but it directly contributes to the DevOps community and serves its mission to spread knowledge and continuously connect development and operations. It’s imperative that this community continues to thrive, and ProfitBricks is joining the movement in a big way to ensure that cloud computing meets its full potential.”
“This type of transparency in cloud computing is making important resources easily accessible for a community that is rapidly progressing,” said David Brown, Founder and CEO of TORO. “There’s no doubt in my mind that this will greatly benefit the DevOps community by giving DevOps pros a painless way to programmatically interact with the cloud.” TORO co-developed the jclouds library with ProfitBricks.
ProfitBricks recently announced the introduction of its multi-user access management and 2-factor authentication capability for a more robust cloud computing experience, arming users with improved IT governance and cloud management.
