Awesome. :clap: :fireworks: congratulations on the launch.

This looks like a great service!

Could it be used to provide additional capacity for, say, a hydra instance?

From the FAQ at the bottom of https://nixbuild.net (it may have been added after your question:

Yes:

Does nixbuild.net work together with Hydra?

Yes. Since nixbuild.net behaves exactly as an ordinary remote Nix builder, it works with any setup using Nix. You can add nixbuild.net as a worker to Hydra and configure it to accept a large number of concurrent jobs, since nixbuild.net automatically scales up.
