Register your GitHub Organisation¶
Actuated is a managed service, where you plug in your own servers, and we do everything else needed to create and manage self-hosted runners for your GitHub Actions.
Plans are paid monthly, without any minimum commitment. Why not pilot our service?
What you'll need¶
- A GitHub organisation
- One or more public or private repositories hosted in the organisation
- Administrative access to install the actuated GitHub App
- A company credit-card to pay for your subscription
- One or more bare-metal servers (we'll recommend the best fit for you during onboarding)
We'll guide you through the process¶
We'll walk you through the onboarding process and answer all your questions, so that you can be up and running straight away.
We've now run over 120,000 VMs for commercial teams already, and there's very little for you to do to get started, in most cases, we've seen a 2-3x speed up for
x86_64 builds by switching one line in a workflow:
runs-on: actuated. For
Arm builds, native hardware makes a night and day difference.
Before the call, generate a usage report with our open-source actions-usage tool and send over the results via email. It'll help us recommend the best fit plan and server sizes for you.
Install the GitHub App¶
An administrator from your GitHub organisation will need to install the actuated GitHub App. GitHub Apps provide fine-grained access controls for third-parties integrating with GitHub.
