Recently we have moved from using the Build server that comes bundled with TFS to JetBrains Team City.
TeamCity is a user-friendly continuous integration (CI) server for professional developers and build engineers www.jetbrains.com/teamcity/
For those of you not familiar with CI at all, I would recommend looking into it on.wikipedia.
The installation of Team City is quite straightforward, just run the setup program and follow the steps. Once it’s up and running you set up your automated builds and tests quite easily. It supports several different build and test agents including MSBuild, MSTest and NUnit. It is also capable running automated coverage analysis of your tests.
Overall we found it to be a far simpler and more powerful server than the TFS option and it is definitely worth a look if you are thinking of setting up or currently have automated builds as part of your development process.
