Enterprise Grade Cloud IDE and Release Timing — Eclipse Che for developer teams and enterprises!

In the latests blog posts, we highlighted the main focus area of Eclipse Che 7, the new plugin model, the kube-native developer workspaces. This blog post explain the different changes coming with Eclipse Che 7 related to the security and management when deployed for enterprises.

Enterprise Grade Cloud IDE

Eclipse Che has gained a great deal of interest in large enterprises who are moving to containers and want to standardize the developer workspace and remove source IP from hard-to-secure laptops. However, there are a number of features needed in order to make Che a simple-to-manage tool for these large and often private environments. Organizations are looking to secure workspaces, deploy them on new infrastructure, and make it easier for teams to collaborate on projects together while maintaining developer autonomy.

For those reasons, we are working on different facets to make Eclipse Che easier to run, simpler to administer and manage.

Eclipse Che 7 — timing?

There is A LOT that is coming with Eclipse Che 7. We spent a lot of time redefining the project’s foundations for the future, making it more enjoyable to use, easier to adopt by large enterprise, and able to support its community growth.

We are all very excited about this new version. In the following weeks, you’ll be reading more about the new capabilities and how they have been built. Eclipse Con Europe was a great event where we were able to unveil a lot of the work we’ve been doing. Now it is time to share it with a broader audience.

It’s available today: when you create a new workspace from the latest Eclipse Che release, you can select Che 7 stacks. You can test it now, and you can post feedback or report bugs — those are always helpful and valuable !

Eclipse Che 7 early beta will be available in February with GA-level Che 7 planned for March.
