have started working at a software company and we just began using a 'build server' and i'm trying to learn more about build servers in general but every time i search for 'build server' or 'how to make a build server', results such as 'building your own server' come up.

can anyone point me in the right direction please?

and i'm curious, at the moment, we have one large hard disk which is a normal 7200 rpm 64 mb cache drive and it stores the previous 3 weeks of builds on it.

i was thinking of adding a fast SSD which would keep the last weeks builds while anything older could be kept on a slower normal HDD since these are not accessed as often.

the main reason i'm looking into this is that the coders are complaining saying the build server is too slow and for the moment, we cannot hire a pro (but maybe in a few months).

anyway, any help or bread crumbs are appreciated, thanks!

Sounds like they are using it for compiling tasks on instead of their local machines. They are probably storing their previous compiles on it so that they can reference back to them. Though getting a SSD drive would help with some compiling tasks, you could also benefit from builing a network team with dual gigabit NICs and possibly more RAM. What are the other specs of the server?
