Currently, BuildGrid is a work in progress and still in the development phase. It is being prototyped with a few users (e.g. Bloomberg) who are collaborating on building it towards a stable, production-ready state. This includes a stable Execution Service, CAS and a set of workers. Once BuildGrid is in a stable, API-compliant state, it can be optimised based on real-world examples.
Our next step will be to implement features we already know are missing, but aren't part of the basic setup:
- Support for smoother operations, e.g. restarting the service without impacting users.
- Metrics and authentication.
- Prioritisation - support for smart scheduling of jobs for better user experience.
- Provide real sandboxes for builds
