I am excited to announce the release of Bamboo 2.2. This release introduces a unique new feature to our continuous integration server that could change the way you build software.. we call it Elastic Bamboo.

Elastic Bamboo

By taking advantage of Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Elastic Bamboo let’s you instantly add capacity to your continuous integration environment. It’s simple really.. provided with an EC2 account, Bamboo can launch remote build agents, or elastic agents, into the cloud.

This is great for reducing build queues on those days leading up to a major milestone when everyone is checking in loads of changes all day long. Less queuing means quicker feedback, so you can get on with everything else you need to do.

Elastic Bamboo is ideal for anything requiring additional resources on the build server, like starting off a new project or running that additional set of tests. By using the cloud, you only pay for what you use and don’t need to lobby IT for new servers or try to re-purpose old ones.
