    Introducing Startup and Scaleup: Our New Paid Plans

    4 min read

    We’re thrilled to announce that starting today, new Semaphore users will have access to our new Startup and Scaleup plans.

    In the past year, we’ve introduced several new features to Semaphore, which were previously only available on our Enterprise plan.

    We recognize that smaller teams with high growth targets can benefit from these features as well. That’s why we’re introducing the Startup and Scaleup plans, which come with a per-seat fee, ensuring that we continue providing the additional value that our users expect.

    You can get more details of the new plans on our updated pricing page and our new documentation pages.

    Key benefits

    • New machines – Our newest generation of cloud machines are available on our new plans, offering twice the RAM, and disk space, as well as powerful new CPUs that can speed up your builds by up to 50%!
    • Self-hosted agents – Enjoy all of the advantages of our Semaphore CI/CD app while you run your jobs in an environment fully controlled by your team. Our self-hosted agents are simple to configure and support easy autoscaling to adapt to your CI/CD needs. 
    • Metrics and insights – Measure the performance, frequency, and reliability of your builds over time and gain access to future updates in this area. This helps you identify areas for improvement and optimize your CI/CD processes.
    • Powerful deployment controls – Level up your CD pipelines with parameterized promotions and upcoming deployment targets. This allows you to automate more of your release process, reducing errors and increasing efficiency.
    • Enterprise-level security – Comply with the strictest security standards and regulations and utilize features like RBAC, Okta, SAML/SCIM, audit logs, pre-flight checks, OpenID Connect integration, IP allow list and many more.
    • Add-ons – Each organization is unique, and on our new plans, you can buy add-ons like a dedicated cache server, container registry, or additional support packages to optimize your CI experience even further.

    Startup plan

    Startup is now our default paid option and replaces the older Standard plan.

    For a starting price of $10, you get the highest value package on the CI/CD market. We won’t limit you as you grow either. Our pricing is still usage-based, so whether you need more seats or more build minutes, just use what you need and pay at the end of the month.

    On the Startup plan, you can run up to 80 jobs in parallel, and connect 40 self-hosted agents to your organization.

    Scaleup plan

    Our Scaleup plan is the upgraded version of our Enterprise plan. With this plan, you’ll receive a pack of free resources each month, and an equal amount of credits that you can use to pay for seats, machine time, storage, and egress.

    The plan starts at $1,800, and any unspent credits from one month will be transferred to the next one, so you never lose any unused credits. Additionally, any additional spending on top of the credits will simply be added to your monthly bill. This gives you the flexibility to adjust your usage to match your business needs and ensures that you’re never paying for more than you need.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    ➟ How can I upgrade to a new plan?

    If you’re an owner of Semaphore organization, you can easily upgrade your plan to Startup within the Plans & Billing page in-app. If you are interested in Scaleup, please contact our customer success team at customersuccess@semaphoreci.com

    ➟ Do I have to migrate?

    You do not have to migrate to new plans. If you are on one of the older plans you don’t have to upgrade, however, if you create a new organization you will only be able to pick one of the newer plans that are available. 

    ➟ Will these new features and machines be available on the legacy plans?

    Organizations on older plans will keep access to all the features and environments that are currently available to them. Access to self-hosted agents, new machines, and new features will be available only on the new plans though. 

    ➟ What are the key differences between Startup and Scaleup?

    Parallelism and the number of self-hosted agents on Startup are restricted to 80 and 40, respectively. Organizations on the Scaleup plan gain access to unlimited parallelism and self-hosted agents, additional security features, flexible billing options, annual payment plans, a dedicated customer success manager, priority support, and many other benefits.
