Checkpoints Plugin

Challenge: 

Long-running software pipelines that fail on day six of a seven-day build cycle can have a dramatic, negative impact on software delivery schedules.

Solution: 

The Checkpoints plugin allows workflows to be restarted at checkpoints, eliminating schedule delays due to master and slave failures.  With checkpoint recovery, long-running pipelines can survive both Jenkins and infrastructure failures, while at the same time eliminating productivity losses incurred when a pipeline has to be restarted from the beginning.
