We need to revisit how we store and manage build artifacts in our environment.
We need to do this to reach several goals:
Stop having to frequently deal with running out of space on the Jenkins server
Stop having to frequently deal with running out of space on the Resources server
Make Jenkins load faster
Make publishing of artifacts faster (If can take up to 20m to publish to 'tested' ATM)
Make it so that finding artifacts is possible without knowing the exact details of the job that made them. We would like to be able to find artifacts by at least:
Knowing the build URL in Jenkins
Knowing the STDCI stage/project/branch/distro/arch/git hash combination.
Asking for STDCI stage/project/branch/distro/arch/latest artifact
We need to achieve the above without significantly harming the UX we provide. For example, users should still be able to find artifacts by navigating from links posted to Gerrit/GitHub to the Jenkins job result pages.
