Visual Studio-Bundled IncrediBuild Build Tool Goes to Cloud

IncrediBuild has announced its build tool -- bundled as a C++ option with the Visual Studio IDE -- has been released in a cloud version that works with the Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) platforms.

IncrediBuild Cloud, announced Oct. 15, comes in hybrid, pure cloud and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings.

The company said the cloud version helps organizations accelerate development projects by leveraging cloud scalability and providing more computing power during peak times by enabling the use of extra resources when needed and then reverting back to default infrastructure configuration upon a complete build.

"In a nutshell, companies can now use IncrediBuild Cloud to gain access to thousands of cores and machines in the public cloud to ramp up development at peak times, even with multiple teams working remotely," the company said. "The new on-demand solution is easy to install, extremely user-friendly with an intuitive interface, and requires minimal maintenance with no migration procedures, eliminating the need for cumbersome training, onboarding processes, and additional investment in resources."

IncrediBuild claims the status of being "the only commercial tool bundled into Visual Studio" for C/C++ project builds.

The Visual Studio relationship was highlighted by Microsoft as far back as 2015, when Visual Studio 2015 offered an IncrediBuild "Build Accelerator" template. More recently, in a May 13, blog post, Microsoft detailed the Build Monitor tool. The Visual Studio 2019 installer presents IncrediBuild as an optional component for C++ workloads, now called "IncrediBuild - Build Acceleration."
