Likelihood to Recommend

Beanstalk

For business or personal applications, where you wish your code to remain private and/or proprietary, Beanstalk could be a good fit. If you are also interested in beginning to automate with relative ease, their tools can be a great help. Code reviews can also be a key factor in the decision, as they provide a good framework for accountability.

Springloops is the best tool for deployment to any environment. Especially, the auto-deployment feature on development servers is essential for the early stages of development. The built-in source control mechanisms are a perfect combination of ease of use and a rich feature set that allows the development team to have an easier and more complete view of each part of the project. A section that is lacking is time tracking - but then this is not the main usage of the service.

Cons

Beanstalk

  • Interface is not always intuitive, some areas are easier than others to navigate.
  • Price plans are a little odd. However, they do seem to be flexible if a plan does not quite fit your needs.

  • We would love to have a more flexible management for resources (users, storage)
  • More advanced web hooks would be a plus

Apart from being a great versioning control system Springloops offers the options to automatically deploy code to multiple systems. This feature alone is a determining factor to renew Springloops over and over again. Another important factor is that it offers a full set of tools that help the team during the development cycle. No switching between time-tracking to project management. This is a real time-saver.

Easy to use, automatic deployments, comments on projects are only a few factors. Multiple servers per project is another must-have feature. User permissions and rights offer granular control on access to the system

I rarely use it but when I need it the team is there. During the initial steps of Springloops, I had close contact with one of the founders. He provided support to me over Skype! He didn't have to but he did. We had a couple of long talks about some issues I was facing. He has there regardless of time. It was a great experience

Alternatives Considered

Beanstalk

If you are creating open source applications, there is almost no reason not to use GitHub. If you do need private repositories (for proprietary or private, business or personal use), Bitbucket could be an excellent solution. Beanstalk's main advantages lie in the support (which is excellent), deployment tools, and code review features.
Chris Putnam | TrustRadius Reviewer

Buddy (formerly Springloops)

Springloops has a built-in feature that is lacking from Bitbucket (at least on the out-of-the-box functionality). Deployment of projects to various servers/development stages. The process is so easy and painless that even remote servers can act as local environments. This is a feature that differentiates Springloops from other solutions that require other tools to perform the same task.

Return on Investment

Beanstalk

  • Increased automation => better accuracy and efficiency of maintenance/launches
  • Better insights into ongoing work and past modifications to code => lower chance of error and more efficient troubleshooting
Chris Putnam | TrustRadius Reviewer

Buddy (formerly Springloops)

  • A total time saver - just commit changes and Springloops can handle the deployments
  • Total control of source code and commits - you never have to think about those things again
