CircleCI introduces server 3.x to bolster security, compliance for enterprise engineering teams

CircleCI, a leading continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) platform, announced the general availability of server 3.x.

In the age of increased security scrutiny around software development, organizations are prioritizing cybersecurity more than ever. CircleCI's server 3.x solution enables engineering teams to achieve the strictest security, compliance, and regulatory requirements with end-to-end control over their CircleCI installation.

"Server 3.x is the latest addition to our suite of enterprise offerings, and changes the game for behind-the-firewall CI/CD," said Jim Rose, CircleCI, CEO. "This self-hosted solution offers the ability to scale under load and run multiple services at once, all within an individual's Kubernetes cluster and network, but with the full CircleCI cloud experience."

Before server 3.x, teams would have to increase the size of the resources required to run under heavy loads, eventually reaching the limits of what was possible with a single ECS instance.

With CircleCI's server 3.x, teams will have access to: 

  • Enterprise-level security. Server 3.x enables customers to achieve the strictest security, compliance, and regulatory requirements with end-to-end control over their CircleCI installation. Customers can host the CircleCI services and application in their own control plane, keeping all information within a private network.
  • Powerful developer tools and functionalities. Teams operating behind their own firewall now have the ability to access CircleCI's full cloud experience and latest CircleCI features, such as orbs, scheduled workflows, matrix jobs, and more. 
  • Industry-leading maintenance and monitoring. Beyond security and features, CircleCI server 3.x allows customers to monitor their installations with standard industry tools such as Grafana, Prometheus, Loki, and more.
  • Extensible integrations: Integrate into existing infrastructure such as Datadog, Splunk, ELK stack, and more. 

Server 3.x will work well for teams that have in-house DevOps and Kubernetes expertise, have their own data centers, or have other highly custom needs that can't be served elsewhere.

CircleCI server can be run on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), or a native Kubernetes installation. 

Anticipated enhancements that will ship in future 3.x releases include access to CircleCl's Insights dashboard, runner for MacOS builds, GovCloud support, observability dashboards, and more.
