Our mission has always been to help teams deliver software faster and better, and today marks a huge milestone for development teams everywhere: we are proud to now offer the most feature-rich and most generous free tier for CI/CD on the market. You won’t get more, for less, anywhere else.
The most features, for free
The new Free plan includes:

- Unlimited users. CI and CD work better with a team; bring everyone on board easily.

- Docker layer caching for speed and efficiency.
- Increased concurrency limits: now up to 30x on Linux, ARM, and Windows.
- The fastest CI anywhere. CircleCI beats leading competitors hands down in speed tests, with build times 70% faster on average than competitors.
- Acceleration. Fine-tune your pipelines with caching, concurrency, test splitting, and more to increase your team’s rate of quality software delivery.
- Streamlined collaboration with private orbs: shareable CircleCI configuration packages.
- Pipeline performance and health metrics on your Insights dashboard. See real-time data on credit usage, success rates, flaky test detection, pipeline duration, and more.
- Security. Our top priority is protecting our users’ intellectual property and sensitive secrets such as keys, tokens, and credentials. Rest easy with a suite of security features and compliance certifications, including FedRAMP and SOC2.
In addition to the best value and performance on the market, CircleCI customers also get access to all the benefits of being part of the CircleCI community, like technical support, training for teams, and extensive educational resources.
Tech takes courage. We’re here to boost your confidence.
Building a software business today is incredibly challenging. Competition is fierce and speed to market, code quality, security, and customer delight are more important than ever. Recent research done by McKinsey & Company showed that “best-in-class tools are the primary driver of developer velocity. Organizations with strong tools—for planning, development… collaboration, and continuous integration and delivery—are 65 percent more innovative than bottom-quartile companies.” We know that with CircleCI in your toolbox, your team has what it takes. That’s because we’ve seen what other teams can do.
According to our last State of Software Delivery report, 50% of development teams on CircleCI were delivering software at the elite level. We’re really proud of that. And stats like this, that show us what amazing work our customers are doing, give us the confidence to offer all teams CircleCI’s best features, all for free. We know that when you add CircleCI to your team, you’ll be set up for success. We’ve seen it before. CircleCI customers consistently achieve elite level performance , and we want to offer that advantage to teams of all sizes, means, and stages.
