Nomad 1.1 is now generally available. This release delivers more than 10 new features to enable more flexible scheduling and a simplified operator experience.

Today we are pleased to announce the general availability of HashiCorp Nomad 1.1. Nomad is a simple and flexible orchestrator used to deploy and manage containers and non-containerized applications across on-premises and cloud environments. Nomad is widely adopted and used in production by organizations such as Cloudflare, Roblox, Q2, Pandora, and GitHub.

Nomad 1.1 delivers more than 10 new features to enable more flexible scheduling and a simplified operator experience. The core Nomad scheduler has been upgraded with new resource control mechanisms to improve cluster efficiency, application performance, and volume management. Enhancements across the UI and API support Nomad’s dedication to a simple and intuitive operator experience. In addition to core Nomad improvements, the Nomad Autoscaler now allows for more flexible scaling policies on more cloud providers.
