XL JetPack Frequently Asked Questions
What is XL JetPack?
XL JetPack is the first DevOps technology that enables development teams to release applications securely to the cloud in just 15 minutes. XL JetPack includes all the critical components necessary for fast, error-free cloud migrations, including: advanced release orchestration, deployment automation, built-in compliance and security functions, and best practice “blueprints” for continuous delivery pipelines, complete with integrations to popular development tools such as Jenkins, Ansible, and AWS CloudFormation.
How can I buy XL JetPack?
You can purchase an annual subscription for one team with up to 10 user and 2000 runs for $499 per month (12-month subscription billed annually). Contact us and a friendly customer advisor will respond right away.
What if I need more users or runs?
You can add more user and run packs at any time by contacting us.
What is included in the subscription?
XL JetPack includes modules for release orchestration and deployment automation, a command-line interface, and access to our blueprint and integration library. The subscription provides a single instance for one team working together on the same apps or projects and the purchased number of users and runs. Users refers to named users who are participating in the process of developing or releasing software with XL JetPack. Additionally, you have access to the XebiaLabs Community Forum.
What are runs?
Runs help us measure how much heavy lifting XL JetPack does for your team. A “run” is generated by 1) the start of a release or pipeline template, 2) the start of a deployment plan, and/or 3) the start of a provisioning activity. A run can occur at any stage in the software development, release, or delivery process (e.g. development, test, or production). Each run is counted as soon as it commences, regardless of the app size, time, amount of code, or eventual completion of the run.
FOR NEW CUSTOMERS: Our goal is to provide a package with plenty of runs for a dev team’s typical use. To help you gain experience with your run count, we are offering all new customers who purchase XL JetPack before June 30, 2019, unlimited runs for the first year of their subscription.
For more details about runs and users, please review our subscription agreement.

XL JetPack is designed to provide the comprehensive release orchestration and deployment automation you need to get your apps to the cloud—fast, flawless, and safe.
