When we introduced Team Foundation Server hosting, it was one of our first ventures into offering specialized software as a product and our first step into the software as a service market. As we listened and worked with our user base, we introduced multiple Team Foundation Server Proxy nodes to improve performance and the user experience and we also introduced Team Foundation Server Build as an add-on service for existing accounts.
I’m happy to announce that we’re taking our next step: Offering Team Foundation Server Build as a standalone service.
At this time, the system is not dynamic, resources aren’t being re-allocated on-the-fly and unfortunately, it will not have dinner ready by the time you get home (but we’re working on that).
So, what do we offer?
We provide a managed, stable working environment that allows for the installation of custom packages and software so that the build server will meet your exact requirements. With the service, you now have the ability to:
- Add a build server without the account-related requirement (Yes, it works with Microsoft’s Team Foundation Service!)
- Scale out an existing configuration by adding additional build servers
- Deployment capabilities
- FTP/WebDAV build retrieval
While the service is still in its beta stage, it is fully functional and we’re continually working to make improvements. If you’re interested in giving Build as a Service a try – for free – please contact our sales team at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
