We raised a $56M Series D: What’s next for CircleCI customers

Here’s what you can expect from us next
Last week we announced our $56M Series D led by Owl Rock Capital and NextEquity Partners, along with our existing investors Scale Venture Partners, Top Tier Capital, Threshold Ventures (formerly DFJ), Baseline Ventures, Industry Ventures, and Heavybit. This brings our total raised to date to $115.5M. Thank you to our customers, our team, and our partners for your support of our vision of shortening the distance between idea and delivery.

Cloud Resource Class Options

Build Better, Faster, Stronger
CircleCI now offers a menu of resource types you can assign to individual jobs in your workflow. Dramatically speed up your builds by using powerful resource types on compute-heavy jobs, and keep costs low by using smaller resources on simple ones. Resource classes are available for teams on our Performance plan. We currently offer resource classes across multiple executors:

  • Docker: 1 CPU / 2GB RAM up to 8 CPU / 16GB RAM
  • Linux VM: 2 CPU / 7.5GB RAM up to 4 CPU / 16GB RAM *
  • macOS: 4 CPU / 8GB RAM and 8 CPU / 16GB RAM *
  • GPU: 1 GPU up to 4 GPU *

* These resource classes require approval to access. If you are already a Performance plan customer, reach out to our support team to enable these.

If you would like access to resource classes, and you are not on the Performance plan, contact our sales team. Specifications and instructions for using resource classes can be found in the resource class preview docs.
