Remote Execution Overview

By default, Bazel executes builds and tests on your local machine. Remote execution of a allows you to distribute build and test actions across multiple machines, such as a datacenter.

Remote execution provides the following benefits:

  • Faster build and test execution through scaling of nodes available for parallel actions
  • A consistent execution environment for a development team
  • Reuse of build outputs across a development team

Bazel uses an open-source to allow for remote execution and remote caching.
