Chocolatey Software

It is very easy to install a batch of Windows software from the command line when setting up a new machine. All needed software installs could be scripted in one batch file and then run on a new machine. It is also very easy to keep the installed software up-to-date via the command line.

If you need to automate the deployment of environments in Kubernetes and these environments should be easily replicable in other regions of your cloud provider or even in other cloud providers, then this is the tool for you. Just be prepared for a certain degree of complexity when creating the charts.

      We didn't really need support, but the open-source community seemed responsive and informative when it came to issues. Many cloud native consultancy companies (including ourselves) offer support for Helm.

      Alternatives Considered

      Chocolatey Software

      The big reason I picked Chocolatey was the fact that npm and Maven are not well-suited for native windows environments. I had to run on a Windows Server virtual machine, so was limited by what I could use, and I did not want to install WSL on the machine. So, I picked Chocolately for dependency management on those machines.

      We have a natural trending to use what is a reference in its space and Helm has being leader in its area for a long time. Since it has all features we need didn't make sense to us to invest time on researching and testing other alternatives, so Helm was our first and only tool in regards of automating deployments on Kubernetes
