Solano's Continuous Integration as-a-Service

Continuous Integration and deployment solutions company Solano has released Private CI, a virtual appliance version of its Software-as-a-Service continuous integration platform.

To be clear, Solano Private CI means that developers now have a choice in implementing the company's continuous integration and deployment products either as a virtual appliance or as a SaaS solution.

Solano Labs' solutions allow test suites to execute with little to no maintenance from users, says the company.

"As developers design software builds requiring longer testing, there is an increased need for Continuous Integration solutions that can optimize test executions. Many current solutions require continuous maintenance — sometimes an entire team of developers — resulting in wasted time on updates, bugs, and security patches," said William Josephson, president at Solano Labs.

Formerly known as TDDium, Solano CI's auto-parallelization of test execution requires less input and maintenance from developers. This should, in theory, improve build times and allowing for faster cycles of innovation.

Also here are functions for safe parallel execution and dynamic task distribution to finish builds up to 80x faster, automatically; options for revision-controlled setup: fast self-service setup for new projects and branches, compact YAML configuration file that lives in the code repository; and finally, it is compatible with most developer environments and supports popular languages such as Java, C/C++, Python, Ruby, JavaScript, Scala, PHP, and Go. Oh just one more thing, it works with Mercurial, Git, and Perforce via Git Fusion.
