  • Major improvement to Spot resource utilization: Previously, you paid for a full hour every time a spot machine was requested as this is the minimum AWS billing period. Now, we maintain spot machines for up to one hour, allowing you to utilize the same spot resource at no extra cost if you perform multiple builds in one hour. The machines are automatically released after 55 minutes if they are not needed.

Incredibuild Cloud 1.8

Incredibuild Cloud 1.4

  • Integration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) – Incredibuild Cloud can now launch and manage VMs on AWS platform for task acceleration.

  • Flexible Integration Modes with AWS - when choosing AWS as a cloud provider for Incredibuild Cloud solution, it is possible to activate Incredibuild Cloud–AWS integration with or without Administrator Access permissions for managing resources on AWS platform.

  • Using Virtual Private Network for Incredibuild Cloud Environment – an existing private network on the cloud can now be used for launching and running Helper VMs, thus adding another layer of security for the transferred data.

  • Launching Incredibuild Cloud from the Web - this new launching route enables to start the activation of Incredibuild Cloud from a different location than the Coordinator machine. It is now possible to launch Incredibuild Cloud even if Incredibuild Coordinator is still not installed or used.  

  • Starting Pool VMs On-Demand in Preparation for a Build Execution – using an API call, it is now possible to start Helper VMs that are in a Stopped state in the pool, before a build is being executed. This option can improve the response time of existing Helper VMs, thus optimizing the acceleration results.

  • Improved Layout of Incredibuild Cloud Settings Page – the Settings page was re-structured for ease of use.

  • Bug fixes and stability improvements.

Incredibuild Cloud 1.3

  • Additional onboarding option with lower Azure permissions – it is now possible to activate Incredibuild Cloud solution without providing Global Administrator permissions to Incredibuild for managing resources on the cloud.
