Accelerate Incremental Builds
Pulling all the images and artifacts needed for a test run is time-consuming, so it is tempting to use the same environment for multiple test runs. But because database state or configuration can change during a test run, subsequent runs can fail; not due to real errors in your code, but through minor differences in your configuration. Sorting out the causes of these errors takes time, which can force you to pull Jenkins /home or equivalent fresh each time. With Portworx, when you’ve built Jenkins /home once, you can snapshot it and use the snapshot as a golden image for subsequent test runs. This will dramatically speed up your incremental builds.
