Experience the 10x performance benefit of Bazel
Optimize your Bazel configuration with fast warming, auto-scaling CI workers, a horizontally scaling remote cache and auto-scaling remote build executors so you can spend less time waiting on CI and more time shipping code to production.
Monitor your build metrics over time & get alerted immediately when there is a build or test breakage on main or a performance regression to your build lands.
Minimize cloud costs with auto-scaling CI workers that leverage Bazel’s built-in incrementally.
Aspect Workflows is available as a fully-managed offering. We operate the services, tune infrastructure configurations, and ensure CI stays fast and cloud costs are minimized.
Most CI platforms are based on the premise that the build system is incorrect: incremental rebuilds can produce stale results, so they are all designed around clean, cold workers that re-do all the build and test work.
Bazel should be hosted the opposite way: re-build and re-test work can be minimized by leveraging Bazel’s built-in incrementally, and correctness is guaranteed.
Configure Bazel with CI specific flags
Operate a horizontally scalable remote cache service
Detect anomalies to know when code changes regress performance
Detect and report on non-determinism that causes cache misses
Parallelize your build by running build actions on auto-scaling remote executors with remote build execution
Reduce datacenter costs by scaling down unneeded replicas off-peak
Reduce developer queue times by scaling up in anticipation of peak load.
Aspect engineers deploy the infrastructure, either in our Cloud account or yours
Aspect engineers are on-call for the service under our SLA
Avoid slow builds during scale-up periods when a developer’s request is dispatched to a fresh worker that has no local cache.
Ensure that Bazel repository cache is persisted across machines
Prevent analysis cache discards
Populate local cache from remote cache before accepting user requests
Execute Bazel repository rules before accepting user requests
Prevent changes in one project from negatively affecting build and test times in another by only building and testing the exact set of targets affected in each change set.
Build and test only the subset of targets that are affected by files modified in change sets
Workflows improves on current solutions which are very incorrect or slow
Ensure that formatters were run and fail quickly, with a developer experience that guarantees quick repair
Ensure that linters run and can report warnings back to code review tool
Determine which deterministic build outputs differ from previous green builds
Re-build changed artifacts with version stamping enabled
Publish these artifacts to external storage such as container registry or cloud storage buckets
Ensure that PR/diff requests don’t have permission to push artifacts

Aspect CLI makes it easy for developers to diagnose their broken build by asking for help directly within their terminal session.
