I have a zip of auxiliary libraries that gets downloaded/unpacked with every build. Is it possible to cache either a single file or a directory?

    Not right now (sorry), but I think it might be done in the future with attachable VM disks, for example. Thanks for the idea!

    I understand that you use Azure to run the build slaves. If I also store, inside Azure, the data I need for each build, will it be faster to download the data? Will I be charged when build slaves access the data stored inside Azure?

    Hi Kirill,

    Right now build workers are being run in East US region, so if you place your data in that region (Azure blob, SQL, etc.) downloading it to build worker should be lightning-fast. If data transfer is occurred in the same region (read "data center") you won't get charged for traffic; otherwise you're charged for outgoing traffic. Incoming traffic is free on Azure.
