We have recently moved from Cloudbees to Atlassian Bamboo but we are now avoiding hosted CI systems all together. By dynamically allocating/spinning up new agents/slaves to perform the build, each slave had to download our Maven artifacts and other binaries (about 1.1 GB worth) and this added significant overhead to our build times.
We avoid this problem now by using a dedicated server for our CI server master and then for high work loads spin up AWS instances with EBS attached containing our Maven artifacts and binaries. We find this gives us the benefits of both worlds, great control over the CI systems as a dedicated system and the scalability and cost control of a Hosted solution. You can do this technique with Jenkins or Bamboo.

Does anyone have any recommendations for hosted CI services? There seems to be a few out there.
We are currently using Jenkins at cloudbees but are reaching the limits of the gratis setup and it seems to make sense to evaluate options before we upgrade.
I know my way around Jenkins but I am not too worried about using different software. The basic requirement is, "run a maven3 build", plus a few other bits which every CI server will support.
For the smaller, 'start-upy' guys out there. What are you using? Anything you would put your name behind? ;)
