CircleCI Server 3.1 Released
July 12, 2021

CircleCI released CircleCI server 3.1, designed to meet the strictest security, compliance, and regulatory restraints.

This self-hosted solution offers the ability to scale under load and run multiple services at once, all within a team's Kubernetes cluster and network with the full CircleCI cloud experience.

As part of the server 3.1 release, CircleCI joins the AWS EKS Partner listing to deliver best in class CI/CD for Kubernetes users on EKS. Server 3.1 simplifies the installation process for EKS users to reduce the barrier to entry and expedite development.

New server 3.1 capabilities include:

- CircleCI runner on server: Allows users to expand their compute options to include macOS, amongst others, and run unique builds on their own infrastructure.

- Backup and restore: Allows users to save a server instance to a cloud storage service or locally, along with the ability to restore the server instance to a previous backup.

- Access to observability stack: Provides an improved view for operators into the health of the server instance through the observability stack, which provides a dashboard on metrics like CPU and memory usage.

- Enhanced customized integrations: Users can now easily configure external endpoints to Postgres, MongoDB, and Vault. They can also customize Telegraf to direct output to their own data services like Datadog or InfluxDB to monitor installation and integrate with an internal dashboard.

- Private IP for load balancer: This makes CircleCI private, for those choosing to control access through another tool like a VPN.

"Enterprises must move now to master the software capabilities at the heart of their future enterprise journeys, or else they risk falling behind. Self-hosted solutions, such as CircleCI's server offering, can help engineering teams focus on delivering business value while also meeting strict security, compliance, and regulatory restraints," said Jim Mercer, Research Director DevOps, and DevSecOps, IDC.
