Our team has set up continuous integration using visual studio online. We have tried cranking up our subscription to advanced with a paid build limit that we are nowhere near reaching. However, build times are exceptionally slow.
The builds will sit in a queue for several minutes then take several minutes to run [even when testing adding Nuget packages to source control].
Is there any way to speed up builds in Visual Studio Online? If not what are some good alternatives?
I see acceptance or setting up our own continuous integration server on an Azure VM as a worst-case fallback.
