    Introducing Semaphore 2.0, Next Generation CI/CD

    2 min read

    Semaphore 2.0 closed beta is now available. Make sure to get on the list for an early invite.

    With powerful, fully customizable CI/CD pipelines, Semaphore 2.0 makes it easier than ever to deliver great products at high velocity. It’s designed to accelerate the way engineering teams of all sizes build, test and deploy their projects. We think you’re really going to love it.

    Here’s a preview of what’s new:

    Pipelines: Automate any workflow

    At the heart of Semaphore 2.0 are fully customizable pipelines. Use them to define CI/CD processes with any number of stages. Want to just push new version of your website live? Want to build containers, run quick unit tests, fan-out to parallel end-to-end tests, fan-in to publish artifacts, and perform blue-green deployment to different environments? Semaphore 2.0 is what you make it to be.

    A new interface: Your pipelines look terrific

    Semaphore 2.0 can visualize code delivery for the whole engineering organization. But the flexibility comes with no tax on the user experience. In fact, this is the simplest version of Semaphore ever. We’ve maintained the product’s famous ease-of-use, while making it a lighter and friendlier place to work. Fewer parts, more power.

    YML configuration and CLI: Hack your CI/CD

    Set up continuous integration and deployment straight from your command line. Run sem init to get to your first working setup. Edit .semaphore.yml to finalize it. Reuse the configuration, including organization-wide secrets, across projects. Semaphore 2.0 embraces the configuration-as-code paradigm, required for a successful DevOps culture.

    Ready for Continuous Delivery with Docker and Kubernetes

    Build, test and deploy container-native systems to Kubernetes. Improved Docker image caching ensures quick transition between CI/CD stages. Securely connect and deploy to your container registry and cloud provider of choice.

    Enterprise: Run Semaphore on your own terms

    We realize that some teams like tools that are easy to use, but also need self-hosted solutions. You will be able to run Semaphore 2.0 in your own, secure environment.

    This post is just a small peek into some of the exciting things we’re cooking up for you with Semaphore 2.0. Follow this blog for more news, screenshots and previews.

    Make sure to get on the list for an early invite — we’ll be happy to get in touch and see what it can do for you and your team.
