IncrediBuild, the leading development acceleration solution provider, announced today at Microsoft’s //build/ conference that it is now a Microsoft Azure Marketplace certified vendor. This new integration into the Microsoft Azure platform dramatically impacts development speed in the cloud.
As a direct result, developers will be able to launch an IncrediBuild Azure virtual machine, thus saving time on any prior configuration, allowing them to seamlessly scale to hundreds of cores regardless of the VM size limitation.
The most noteworthy benefit for developers lies within harnessing the compute power of Azure to significantly boost build performance. Developers can work on a hybrid cloud environment and scale build performance by adding compute power from Azure, especially at peak times.
Alternatively, they can design their development environment as a pure cloud deployment over Azure and use IncrediBuild’s distributed processing solution to turn their VM network into one hive super-computer with immense build and compilation speed capabilities.
In the past, companies had to invest in more PC’s in order to gain additional cores to their IncrediBuild network, but with Azure interoperation they can just assign virtual machines as agents at peak times and earn valuable resources at a considerable lower cost than buying actual computers.
“IncrediBuild adds yet another layer of scalability to Visual Studio enabling developers to scale their applications to the cloud.” – Mitra Azizirad, General Manager, Cloud Application Development & Data, Microsoft Corp.
“Our strategic relationship with Microsoft Azure means a fast, scalable, no-hassle solution that saves developers time and money in more ways than one,” says IncrediBuild CEO, Eyal Maor. “Instead of allocating 10 stand-alone VM’s with 8 cores each, why not turn them into an 80 core super-machine that will set your builds into hyper speed, even if it’s only for a day or a week?” “Your CI cycles can be reduced by as much as 80% and your time to market significantly expedited”, Maor concludes.
