ElectricCommander® v5.0 is now Generally Available

Original Creation Date: 2014-05-12 15:17:10 UTC


Electric Cloud is pleased to announce the general availability of ElectricCommander 5.0.  This release provides the ability to run ElectricCommander in a high availability configuration and scale out the installation to handle increasing workloads.  Further enhancements extend Commander into Continuous Delivery by adding support for application and environment modeling along with deployment automation.


High Availability

With this release it is possible to deploy ElectricCommander in a clustered mode to provide a fault tolerant “active/active” configuration.  In this configuration, two or more Commander servers can actively handle workload in the same installation. If a Commander server becomes unavailable for any reason, other servers in the cluster would ensure continued service to end users and running jobs. This significantly improves reliability and uptime.

Horizontal Scalability

With this release you can scale out your Commander installation to cater to increased load. You can configure multiple Commander servers to actively handle load in a single installation.

Continuous Delivery

This release introduces ElectricFlow, our next-generation offering for Continuous Delivery.  ElectricFlow is built as a new suite of applications on top of the Commander platform and provides an optimized user experience for Continuous Delivery spanning build, test, deploy and release.  In this 5.0 version of ElectricFlow, the focus is on deployment automation including a new model-based deploy capability and persona-based user interface.  Deployment automation in ElectricFlow replaces ElectricDeploy.

Faster Troubleshooting

Request and Log analyzer utilities to quickly troubleshoot issues for faster root cause analysis.
