Every Electric Cloud Has An Accelerated Build Lining

Electric Cloud has thrown the switch on ElectricAccelerator 6.0, a product designed to bring the power of "reliable build acceleration" to individual developers and workgroups. Composed of two new products, ElectricAccelerator Developer Edition (EADE) and ElectricAccelerator Workgroup Edition (EAWE), the new offering aims to let individual developers and small teams maximize build acceleration by harnessing the power of the cores available on an individual machine for parallel processing.

With what is claimed to produce better utilization of resources and reduced wait time in the build queue, EADE and EAWE include patented dependency analysis that speed the build process by optimizing parallel build execution. ElectricAccelerator is said to be the only solution that allows programmers to leverage the power of the desktop, the power of a build cloud, or indeed both — for the same build. It allows developers to accelerate builds when offline and take advantage of the build cloud when on the network.

"In our increasingly Agile world, fast builds are more important than ever," said Electric Cloud CEO Mike Maciag. "Our annual customer survey showed that more than 60 percent of our users see developer builds as the greatest opportunity for ElectricAccelerator's technology. We are excited to deliver 10-20x faster builds and complex build analytics to individual developers and workgroups."
