CircleCI Enterprise runs builds behind firewalls for added compliance

Tools

CircleCI launched a product aimed at enterprises that want to run continuous integration and continuous delivery builds behind their firewalls. The new CircleCI Enterprise was designed to provide such organizations with added compliance, control and customization.

The product still deploys in the cloud, and CircleCI has provided deployment options so far for both Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. The company plans to expand its supported clouds to include VMware and OpenStack, but it wasn't specific in its announcement as to when additional cloud support would be available.

CircleCI Enterprise builds on the company's existing CircleCI.com continuous integration and delivery service. CircleCI developed this new cloud-based offering with the idea of providing developers with the ability to modify and tune build resources and environments behind the firewall. Developers have the ability to customize the included packages in their own build containers and then modify the CPU and memory allocations for individual containers.

It's clear CircleCI launched this new version of its product because of the compliance requirements of some organizations. Designed to integrate with GitHub and launching out of the box with support for Docker, Sauce Labs, Heroku and other DevOps-related tools, CircleCI Enterprise provides greater control so developers can ensure compliancy with regulations.

As noted in the press release, many corporate policies need to lock down the ability to use third-party cloud services. CircleCI Enterprise was designed with that need in mind and provides developers with "complete control" in their deployments over access to source code, test databases and other resources.

"We designed CircleCI Enterprise to deliver the same great functionality as CircleCI.com so organizations can test, deploy and manage builds, all behind their own firewall," said Jim Rose, CEO at CircleCI, in a statement.
