remote execution

Running CMake at scale

The main service we provide at EngFlow is Remote Execution (or RE for short). Remote Execution allows a build to run over a horizontally-scalable distributed system, thus speeding up highly parallelized builds. This parallelization is one of the features that make Bazel builds so scalable. Outside of Bazel, Buck2 and a few exotic build systems such as Chromium and AOSP, the adoption of this protocol is almost non-existent. Here at EngFlow we saw many C and C++ codebases successfully adopting RE, and decided to partner with, experts in that field, to bring CMake support to EngFlow.
