Semaphore’s Continuous Integration Service is Now 15% Faster

Semaphore is one of the very few (if not the only) CI services running jobs on dedicated hardware.

When using Docker-based deployments, environments for development, staging and production are virtually the same, and they can be rapidly reproduced on-demand. As more and more developers find these benefits appealing, there’s an emerging need…
