About Incredibuild

Incredibuild is a cloud-based and on-premise platform designed to help small to large organizations manage compilation, testing and release automation processes while building applications. Features include continuous integration, data visualization, a dashboard, and simulations. Developers can perform C++ and C# compilations, track the progress and identify code faults. It utilizes virtualization to distribute compile load across remote hosts, facilitating users with reduced wait times and context switching. Incredibuild also lets IT teams execute multiple types of tests, run a full test suite and track and fix bugs in real-time. End-users can also handle various type of graphic workloads including rendering, light-map baking, shader compilation, texture compression and image processing. Incredible offers integration with multiple third-party platforms such as TeamCity, Azure DevOps, CruiseControl, Jenkins, Bamboo, QT Creator, and more. Pricing is available on request and support is offered via documentation, email and phone.

I love it

I remember having some issue only once, and it happened very rarely. I posted it to a man from IB team, and got immediate reply with suggestions what to tweak in settings to fix that, which obviously worked.
Some of my colleauges says that the only annoying thing is that when they do a trivial change in code that needs rebuilding just that single cpp file, it takes more time than it should because IB does some initial task which we believe has something to scheduling jobs among clients, which in practice doesn't need any help because rebuilding just 1 file is enough to be done locally.

Pros

It works just out of the box. We was worried that we'll have to spend a lot of time trying to make it work, especially that our projects are insanely huge. With all dependency libs clean build on 8-core cpu machine is around 25-30 minutes, and we often rebuild a lot because the code is very templastic, so touching one template triggers domino effect. Anyway... we was surprised when we just installed it, pressed button to build, and tadaa. Compiled in 4-5mins !

Cons

When I hit compile on my PC, I feel like entire building is taking off like a helicopter. 50+ computers on our floor starts throttling up their cpu fans :) Which is also kind of impressing.

Saves huge amount of time on compilations

Bottom line this tool saves a tremendous amount of time for developers, and also in CI/nightly builds. This translates into increased developer productivity and faster feedback from the CI system.

Pros

The technology is truly amazing. A Visual Studio build that takes 8 hours to complete, was cut down to 45 minutes just by deploying Incredibuild, before applying any further optimizations and best practices to accelerate the build even more. It also works on our current hardware (workstations and servers) without noticeable impact on performance.

Cons

The fact that you need a separate license bundle for each technology (C++, C#, make, ...), and also separate license bundles to utilize multi-core machines, can greatly increase the cost of the product in the long run

Whoosh splat

Compile times for Unreal Engine based games.

Pros

Distributed builds are definitely a huge performance win for being able to iterate on building our product.

Cons

1. Unfortunately, it can lead to a Jevon's paradox where it is easier to be sloppy about structuring code well to avoid issues that slow down compiles.
2. Initiating XGE builds for tools is done through an executable--there isn't an API to use where you can initiate, monitor, add or remove tasks to distribute along with what is currently being built, or cancel. This level of dynamism would help with multiple builds being initiated by the same PC.
3. There have been stability issues and crashes we have encountered for our builds which seem exacerbated with the number of people working remotely.

Build fast using your free computing power

Incredibuild are the easiest way without changing your project to dramatically lower your build time, they have good service support and build monitor shows you if you would join more resources that you already have it would build even faster. good integration with all Microsoft tools and also Linux (we're using it for both)

Pros

The thing I like most about this software is the simplicity to lower dramatically our product build time without using extra resources.

Cons

The cloud solution is running on your cloud environment (not including IBM Cloud) and it's not fully SAAS.

Fast and easy

Pros

Incredibuild does a fantastic job of speeding up long builds on both desktops and servers. Setup and integration into existing visual studio projects is very easy.

Cons

Restrictions on various helper types is a bit of a nuisance. Separate licenses are required depending on the workload being distributed based on tools (c++ vs csharp vs Visual Studio vs Makefile). Nested commands (ie a separate compile process being kicked off in a pre-build step) require upgrading to the much more expensive enterprise edition.
