Storage & Computing Costs
Nimbus takes your project development environments and puts them on the cloud so everyone can work in a fast and consistent manner. This means less configuration, troubleshooting, maintenance, etc.
Get ready for a long answer...
Development environments are a workspace that acts as a layer of abstraction to automatically handle everything needed to make code into its end product - like source code, runtime, compilers, debuggers and more. Development environments are used to give programmers a safe space to work with control and flexibility.
This safe space is a necessity but problematic. They sit on a programmer’s laptop (i.e. local), so they drain your battery and make them run hot and loud. It also introduces risk to the code base because the most vulnerable part of development is the programmer endpoint. It’s also a pain to maintain - development environments take time to set up and maintain as complexity evolves, docs become outdated, knowledge leaves the team, and the team grows. There are also inherent software decay and versioning issues (e.g. package X is updated but not package Y) that further complicate this.
Nimbus handles the preparation, replication, delivery and access control of dev environments. We do the heavy lifting of making dev environments accessible and scalable. Developers typically access these environments through an editor extension, SSH, or a lightweight integration at a project, team or company level.
Honestly, it’s hard to say. Some companies will build out something similar to get similar benefits. We’ve found engineers want to build new and innovative solutions to their most pressing challenges resulting in less optimal in-house solutions. Reach out to compare and make an informed decision.
It takes no longer to set up Nimbus than it does to set up one machine. However, once Nimbus is set up, that environment can now be deployed to an entire team.
We have some other exciting time saving set up features in development though. Stay tuned!
Currently, we have an integration into VS Code (Mac, PC, Linux) via a free extension in themarketplace.
