We recently released CircleCI server v2.19, which includes AWS GovCloud support as well as other new upgrades and performance enhancements. Server installations running v2.19 on AWS are now configured to work on GovCloud, helping customers meet a variety of regulatory requirements such as FedRAMP, ITAR, DoD SRG, CJIS, and HIPAA. Now, the government’s developer community will be empowered to move with ease and speed in one of the most secure environments in the world.

GovCloud is an AWS service specifically built for U.S. government agencies and other regulated industries such as healthcare, finance, justice, public safety, and energy. With AWS GovCloud, users gain the control and confidence needed to securely run their business with the most flexible and secure cloud computing environment available. Support for GovCloud comes on the heels of CircleCI’s SOC 2 Type II compliance and 18 months after being FedRAMP certified, the first and only continuous integration (CI) solution to do so.

Our goal at CircleCI is to help our customers drive innovation by giving them the most powerful CI tool available. Unfortunately, developers building products and services for government agencies had been forced to rely on CI options that restricted their productivity and were often costly to maintain.

CircleCI server provides access to run CircleCI behind a firewall on private infrastructure. Other upgrades and performance enhancements in server v2.19 include:

  • Upgraded Nomad instances: We’ve updated our Nomad clusters from 0.5x to 0.9, reducing the accumulation of dead jobs and improving performance for server customers. Before upgrading to Server v2.19 your Nomad launch configuration must be updated by following this guide. If you have externalized Nomad, contact your support engineer before upgrading.
  • Enhanced control and flexibility with default resource classes: Users can now set and edit default resource classes to provide developers with CPU/RAM options for the jobs they configure. For more information see our guide to customizing resource classes in Server v2.19.
