Bare Metal and In-House Datacenter Deployments Deployments


Linux / bare metal deprecated

As of January 22nd, 2019, we have deprecated support for Linux / bare metal.

Codecov has deprecated bare metal deployment support. This is due to the underlying complexity these deployment approaches tend to possess compared to hosted cloud style deployments, and our inability to confidently support the myriad of different approaches that may come with deploying on bare metal.

Codecov will support dockerized/containerized deployments that use cloud hosted services (e.g., AWS, GCP, Azure). By default, we will not support bare metal deployments, or on-premises deployments into a customer's own data center. but if your particular circumstances dictate such an approach, please reach out to us so we can discuss any potential ways forward.

Codecov Self-Hosted Version Support


Prior support deprecation

Codecov officially open sourced our offering on July 23, 2023. As a result of this open sourcing, Codecov will no longer support versions below v2023.07.27 for open source, self-hosted use.

As part of open sourcing, Codecov changed its versioning from semver to calver. The last semver version of Codecov is v5.0.1 and is intended for Enterprise customers. For those existing Enterprise customers, Codecov will continue to support all versions of Codecov released after v4.6.3, up to and beyond v5.0.1. For open source / self-hosted use, we will only provide support for v2023.07.27 and above.
