AWS OpsWorks

OpsWorks facilitates the management, monitoring and maintenance of the complete stack of Chef's infrastructure, to be part of AWS has a large community for support and assistance, it also concentrates a lot of documentation that can empower our devops area to shorten the curve Learning. Good tool to automate tasks for the company's devops and IT staff.

TeamCity

TeamCity is well suited for an organization using continuous integration, meaning you release code to production often, and an agile project management system. There are free versions available for small teams and enterprise versions available for large teams with many different builds.TeamCity is probably overkill for basic e-commerce or blog website builds that do not require much development after the initial launch

Pros

AWS OpsWorks

  • The interface is quite intuitive and allows you to discover and easily find what you want to do and what other features are within OpsWorks.
  • Chef integration is pretty seamless and there are a good set of options and operating systems to choose from
  • It makes things like auto scaling set up, either via load or time, more straight forward and intuitive than what you'd typically see via the EC2 console

TeamCity

  • Fully customizable build process. Each step of the build process can be parameterized and customized to address specific needs of particular applications. This allowed us to easily convert from a custom VM-based environment to our current Docker-based environment.
  • Manages large numbers of build agents seamlessly. This allows us to run multiple builds on many different applications in a most efficient manner.
  • Build steps can be managed in an arbitrary manner, allowing some parts of the process to proceed in parallel while restricting others to depend on completion of all relevant steps.

Cons

AWS OpsWorks

  • Getting up and running with OpsWorks is a very technical and potentially time-consuming process. You need to know the ins and outs of Chef/Puppet if you really want to get into it and there isn't a convenient way to test out the environment locally so debugging can be time-consuming.
  • To take advantage of some of the newer AWS instance types you need to be running on a VPC, which again is a pain if you don't have a DevOps team.
  • The error logs and monitoring metrics in OpsWorks are pretty basic and haven't changed much over the years.

TeamCity

  • Reading build output logs can be a pain at times, as they aren't really parsed; just long lines of output.
  • When you have multiple projects and branches, determining what is currently building, what is pending, and what has failed can be difficult.

TeamCity doesn't slow down when integrating with other tools. It's one of the faster CI tools I've seen. Pages load very quickly, reports are near instant, build logs and the pipeline images are live, and it handles anything we throw at it.

Support Rating

AWS OpsWorks 6.0
Based on 1 answer
Unless you pay for a pricey support package getting support on OpsWorks will be pretty slow. Documentation is also relatively limited and sometimes hard to follow when compared to competitors. Generally, we've been able to get the answers we need from OpsWorks support when we run into problems but don't expect rapid responses.

Alternatives Considered

AWS OpsWorks

OpsWorks is an orchestration tool, basically you use it to specify the state you want your network to be in by specifying the state you want each resource (server instances, applications, storage) in which you want that resource to be. And specify the state in which you want each resource.The evaluated competitors have other benefits that in our case did not provide as many benefits as OpsWorks.

TeamCity

TeamCity is a great on-premise Continuous Integration tool.Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) is a hosted SAAS application in Microsoft's Cloud.VSTS is a Source Code Repository, Build and Release System, and Agile Project Management Platform - whereas TeamCity is a Build and Release System only.TeamCity's interface is easier to use than VSTS, and neither have a great deployment pipeline solution. But VSTS's natural integration with Microsoft products, Microsoft's Cloud, Integration with Azure Active Directory, and free, private, Source Code repository - offer additional features and capabilities not available with Team City alone.

Return on Investment

AWS OpsWorks

  • OpsWorks has allowed some of our more simple application stacks to be implemented quickly and effectively. Whilst it is difficult to put actual numbers on it, it meant we could hit the ground running before tackling the more complex world of Cloudformation/Terraform to manage parts of our infrastructure.
Andrew Raines | TrustRadius Reviewer

TeamCity

  • It has drastically improved the turnaround time for building and deploying projects to Production
  • The build process can be augmented by adding build servers quickly
  • In my opinion the licensing cost is not expensive at least for small to medium enterprises, although I haven't looked in detail into how it changes when you move up.
