Very slow and not intuitive; it would be my last choice for version control systems.The UI is a little confusing at times and seems a little outdated. It needs a lot of improvement. It is suited for small projects and fewer number of projects. But if there are huge projects and many projects to be maintained in a portfolio, its a little hard to manage.

Octopus Deploy

Any software shop that deploys multiple applications across multiple environments can benefit from Octopus Deploy. If you already have a custom deployment framework in place, Octopus might not offer anything new for you. It's also noteworthy that the free version of Octopus offers a great deal of functionality. We are still using the free version and are just now possibly needing to move to a paid version.

Octopus Deploy

  • Octopus integrates nicely with TeamCity, our build server.
  • Octopus uses the same deployment packages across environments and makes it easy to track their progress across those environments.
  • Octopus makes it easy to handle configuration across environments which is usually a particularly difficult task.

Cons

AccuRev

  • Ability to zoom in/out for stream-view. We currently have many streams/substreams and unable to view the entire workflow. Zooming in/out would benefit.
  • Being a designer, I use Adobe Flash and SWF files. When updating the SWF files, Accurev does not see these files as being changed and you will be unable to promote. In order to push changes, you must totally rename the SWF file.

Octopus Deploy

  • I would like to see Octopus handle branches as a first class citizen better. It certainly has branch support, but it is not as smooth or as intuitive as I would like it to be. I would like it to be easier to pick the branch of a repo I want to deploy and where I want to deploy it.
  • I think Octopus could do more to help the management of Azure deployments. The ability to swap slots in Azure would be a welcome feature.
  • Some integration points with TeamCity could be improved. It's not easy to spot the version number/name of a build package in Octopus and track it against the version displayed in TeamCity. It's possible, but not at all easy.

I give it this rating because I found an alternate application that is much more cost effective and quicker

Would be a 10 except for the retirement of the free Community Edition.

Octopus Deploy has greatly helped us to improve our reliability and frequency of our deployments and given us the confidence to deploy much more often, with a direct benefit to customers. Cross-platform support and release to Cloud require more focus on the product side.

I've never thought I needed Octopus to be any faster than it is. The slow parts are the parts that are always slow across these frameworks - acquiring the build package, deploying the build package, etc. File IO across machines is the only thing that slows Octopus down. The UX is plenty fast for our needs.

Octopus Deploy

This software, unlike Chef, is much easier to configure or manage, since its platform provides documentation or tutorials on how to use it, besides its interface is much more modern and easy to use, it allows you to choose where you want carry out the implementations of the applications and configure when and where you want to do it and also provides security when doing this activity so it is very rare that there is a problem after that, while Chef is only based on cloud servers .

Octopus Deploy

  • Octopus Deploy has allowed us to carry out implementations of our applications in a much more effective and secure way, since it is much simpler to decide in which place we want them to be carried out, in what time or moment is desired, and what is the state of each one of detailed form. It is for that reason that the time it takes for us to complete this task now is much smaller and we can say goodbye to errors as well.
  • It also gives us the advantage that implementations can be executed on several servers at the same time.
  • And the best thing is that it gives us the confidence that what has been tried and implemented is what it really is.
