Electric Cloud is Pleased to Announce the Release of ElectricAccelerator® 11.0

Summary

ElectricAccelerator 11.0 introduces several new capabilities that dramatically shrink development cycles and enable software engineering teams to improve software quality while releasing more frequently. The 11.0 release introduces plug-and-play support for accelerating embedded Linux builds based on Yocto project, buildroot and Android platforms. This release also introduces cloud bursting for both AWS and Kubernetes environments, enabling customers to optimize infrastructure utilization and costs without compromising performance.

Out-of-the-box support for accelerating Embedded Linux builds

This release improves the out-of-box support for Android by adding support for the latest Android version (Android v9.0) and extending support to the LineageOS Android distribution. It introduces drop-in support for embedded Linux builds based on the Yocto Project and buildroot, accelerating the embedded Linux builds through both distribution and caching.

Simplified resource management and Cloud bursting for optimizing infrastructure utilization

  • This release simplifies, consolidates and streamlines resource management capabilities in Accelerator to enable customers to optimize their infrastructure utilization and costs without compromising performance.
  • Out-of-the box support for cloud bursting is introduced for both AWS EC2 and Kubernetes environments. Resources can be extended to allow “cloud bursting” functionality to spin up agents dynamically when the demand exceeds the capacity of statically configured agents. .
  • This release provides finer control over cloud configuration by letting you control cloud settings (e.g. instance types) on a per resource basis.
  • This release provides improved reporting about agent and cluster utilization through improved tracking of resource statistics.

Improved Android Build Support

ElectricAccelerator now supports the latest version of Android P. Kernel builds and incremental builds are faster with this release.

Additional Platform Support

ElectricAccelerator now supports the following platforms:

  • CentOS 7.4 and 7.5 (64-bit)
  • Debian 9 (64-bit)
  • RHEL 6.10

 Supported Platforms and Configurations

See the “Supported Platforms and System Requirements” chapter in the ElectricAccelerator 11.0 Installation and Configuration Guide for a complete list of supported platforms and configurations.
