Electric Cloud Opens ElectricAccelerator Product to Speed Software Development Tasks

- SCons, MSBuild, and Other Development Processes Supported Through New Electrify Feature

SUNNYVALE, California, February 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Electric Cloud(R), the leading provider of software production management (SPM) solutions, has expanded ElectricAccelerator to help developers get the most out of the tools and processes they have in place today. ElectricAccelerator now includes Electrify, a feature that provides parallel processing for virtually any software production task, and subbuild technology, which helps developers avoid unnecessary builds altogether. Electric Cloud also announced significant upgrades to ElectricCommander today (http://www.electric-cloud.com/news/2010-0216b.php).

"Our goal is to remove the bottlenecks in software production wherever they exist," said Mike Maciag, CEO of Electric Cloud. "ElectricAccelerator speeds Make, NMAKE, Visual Studio and Ant builds by 10-20x. With Electrify we are broadening the technology to enable these benefits for virtually any compute-intensive development task."

ElectricAccelerator uses patented technology to safely speed development tasks by running them in parallel on private or public compute clouds. ElectricAccelerator 5.0 brings the benefits of parallelization it first applied to software builds to a variety of new development tools and tasks. Its Electrify feature lets developers use parallel processing to improve the performance of many software production tools and tasks.

In addition to now supporting build tools like MSBuild, SCons and homegrown systems, Electrify creates an all-purpose private compute cloud. Developers can apply the power of parallel computing to new tasks like parallel testing or data modeling, and they can do it at their desktop, in a private cloud or on a dedicated server.

For example, teams standardizing on tools like SCons can apply the benefits of centralization to provide faster builds than individual multicore servers can offer, while at the same time reducing hardware costs and server sprawl by using fewer actual machines. Supporting multiple configurations also becomes demonstrably easier, as the virtualization capabilities of ElectricAccelerator permit zero-configuration support for changing developer environments. Development teams retain full control over their tools and environments, while IT is released from the headache of supporting a variety of configurations.

ElectricAccelerator 5.0 also adds subbuilds, allowing developers avoid unnecessary work by automatically reducing a build to the smallest subset of critical changes. Its subbuild technology identifies and builds only the components that are essential to a developer's current focus. The result is fewer broken builds and the ability to compile and test frequently without affecting the rest of the team. Subbuilds are also part of Electric Cloud's free developer build tool, SparkBuild, available for download at http://www.sparkbuild.com.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
