Viewtier Systems Announces Load Balancing and Failover for Build Farm

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/01/09 -- 2009 Java One - Viewtier Systems today announced the release of Parabuild 4.0. This major release introduces automatic load balancing and transparent fail-over for build farm, and over 40 new features and enhancements.

Parabuild is a software release management system that builds, tests and manages software releases for enterprises large and small. Parabuild ensures uninterrupted release process by delivering practically unbreakable release builds, and provides Continuous Integration.

"A modern build farm may easily contain tens of agent machines. Ensuring even load in the build farm is critical for best build performance. Manually assigning tasks to agent machines to balance load is a non-trivial task. Agent failures require manual re-assigning builds to operational agents that causes release delays and significant administrative headache," says Slava Imeshev, Viewtier's President and CTO. "Parabuild 4.0 solves this problem by providing fully automatic load balancing across a cluster of build agents, and introduces transparent failover for the distributed build infrastructure."

Additional improvements include real-time load monitoring for build farms, an extensive build management Web Service API, simplified system administration, support for 8GB database files and integration with AccuRev VCS. To learn more about Parabuild 4.0, please visit:
