Cisco Intersight

Cisco Intersight is very well suited for doing firmware upgrades across all of your cisco hardware. So far we have had no problems pushing out new firmware. It's also well suited for hardware management. Cisco TAC has the ability to pull logs for the IMC for themselves, which saves you from having to pull the logs yourself and then uploading them to the case. It may or may not be appropriate for upgrading operating systems. I have not been able to test it.

Octopus Deploy

Octopus Deploy is a well though [the] solution to the deployment orchestration problem. It is a reliable and robust solution that is relatively simple to understand. [Its] UI is friendly and easy to use, The support and documentation [are] excellent and the product seems to fit into any organization’s process very well and with less effort than other products in this space. I actually find it a pleasure to work with [every day] and I am glad to have it as an integral part of our process.

Cons

Cisco Intersight

  • Mobile app has some minor display issues.
  • Most exciting features are still being rolled out.
Wouter Hindriks | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Intersight

We use the Dell OpenManage product previously when we were using Dell servers. Cisco Intersight has much more capabilities than Dell OpenManage had in the past. I haven't used any other product lately which would allow me to compare the features. We use What's up gold for up/down monitoring but It doesn't have the firmware update features.

Octopus Deploy

There aren't really any competitors in the land of ASP.NET. Deployment is too ad-hoc. Other tools exist that have massive downsides, like Web Deploy. Most aren't even supported anymore. You could argue that containers (Docker) are a competitor, but containers cannot be used for everything and solve a somewhat different problem. Octopus Deploy is even able to help with containers. To us, Octopus Deploy was really the only really polished solution.
