Great DevOps tool

Excellent

Pros

Easy to configure and set up all your dev ops pipelines once and then invoke them over and over, to ensure consistent and completely automated deployments.

Cons

If you use their cloud offering with many targets it can quickly become quite expensive.

Reasons for choosing Octopus Deploy

Octopus Deploy had much better documentation and support making the setup process a breeze.

Octopus Review - from a DevOps perspective - Used for 9+ years

I have been using Octopus Deploy for the past 9 years and have implemented it in over 4 different companies and have used its features extensively taking it to it limits :)

Pros

Kubernetes Deployment options and customization along with a lot of integration with different providers and tools

Cons

- Needs to Support Kubernetes CronJob deployment type (supported natively) - Needs to have a build in option to 'Wait' for Kubernetes Job type Deployments and read its exit code - Needs to support more Artifact Repos, such as AWS CodeArtifact - Cloud Agent needs to be 'faster' in general and ideally caches docker layers, we have deployments taking over 10mins, pooling/starting of the cloud agent takes time and also downloading the Octopus Tools Docker images takes very long on these agents (we're not using any custom one)

Reasons for choosing Octopus Deploy

Its integration options with different tools and providers and its not just a "CD" tool like argoCD, it allows you to do much more - such approval process, integration with Jira, slack notifications, Cloudfront integration (just as an example) etc...

Octopus Is Pretty Solid

Pros

That I feel like it can do anything, or that I can do anything with it. The extensibility makes it feel like I can incorporate any deployment needs I have which is cool. We have a bunch of different applications and they're not all built the same, so it's nice to feel like there isn't any app we can't deploy with Octopus.

Cons

Sometimes it feels like I don't know what all the features are, or what features to use where. It can get confusing and sometimes I don't feel like the docs do a good enough job explaining this to me.

Great tool for deployment and run automated tasks

Great experience overall. Awesome tool to design automated tasks, really versatile. It is really easy to design a workflow with different steps and bind them together. I'm right now in the process of implementing a deployment to a Kubernetes Cluster and everything goes smooth so far. One thing I love is the support mechanism that Octopus Deploy has. Every time I have doubts or I don't know how to do something, I just ask in the community and in less than a couple of hours I get a response.

Pros

The ease of use and how versatile it is.

Cons

I have nothing bad to say at the moment. I've been using it for just a month now so I'm just getting used to it.

Reasons for choosing Octopus Deploy

Automation and deployments in one tool, plus the cost.

Excellent product

Simply fantastic, a must have part of web development for me. This product simplifiies release procedure. so now we can release many times a day if we want. So for example releasing to our test environments are now fully automated. (This probably happens 10 times a day)

Pros

Octpus Deploy is a very simple concept that is elegantly executed. I really like the ability to configure releases, (they can be either simple or complex). Once configured, it's then a very simple process to move a release from one environment to another. Octopus Deploy does not dictate infrastructure, so it's up to you as to what environments etc you want. As the needs of our organization has changed so has the release process. Octopus Deploy is straight forward and simple to configure. The ease of use of creating releases. . I love the fact that Octopus Deploy removes any drama about releasing or "rollbacking" software. It just works.

Cons

Not a big fan of version immutability, but I understand it and have accepted it.
