Walking away from Run@Cloud Part 3: Pause and Reflect

As a happy free-tier CloudBees user, my "build ecosystem" looked like this:

As CloudBees seem to have gone "Enterprise" in the worst possible way (from my perspective) and don't have any free offerings any more, I was now looking for:
  • Git repository hosting (for private repos - my open-source stuff is on GitHub)
  • A private Nexus instance to hold closed-source library artifacts
  • A public Nexus instance to hold open-source artifacts for public consumption
  • A "cloud" Jenkins instance to build both public- and private-repo-code when it changes;
    • pushing private webapps to Heroku
    • publishing private libs to the private Nexus
    • pushing open-source libs to the public Nexus
... and all for as close to $0 as possible. Whew!
