Posted by Sheryl Koenigsberg on Dec 2, 2016

We’ve long had customers in software development reap the benefits of Infinio, seeing shorter build times. For some, improving build times is an important step in their move towards continuous development. For others, it enables multiple builds each day that used to be limited to a single overnight process.

I recently talked with Chris Braun, one of our senior engineering directors who runs DevOps here, about our own deployment of Infinio. Turns out, we’re seeing great results (just like our customers), even in some unexpected places.

Posted by Dan Perkins on Nov 14, 2016

Posted by Sheryl Koenigsberg on Oct 31, 2016

We've been working with our friends over at Solarwinds® to see how we could deploy Infinio Accelerator alongide Solarwinds Virtualization Manager ("VMAN").
