Codeship

Codeship is very well suited to teams that have specialized devops members along with other specialized developers. It lets the other developers focus on what they do best, without having to learn another technology stack. This has cut down on a lot of headaches at our company with developers needing to deploy code to various different hosting services across different content management systems. The experience to push code is essentially the same for a developer no matter what the underlying technology is

GoCD

Previously, our team used Jenkins. However, since it's a shared deployment resource we don't have admin access. We tried GoCD as it's open source and we really like. We set up our deployment pipeline to run whenever codes are merged to master, run the unit test and revert back if it doesn't pass. Once it's deployed to the staging environment, we can simply do 1-click to deploy the appropriate version to production. We use this to deploy to an on-prem server and also AWS. Some deployment pipelines use custom Powershell script for.Net application, some others use Bash script to execute the docker push and cloud formation template to build elastic beanstalk.

Pros

Codeship

  • Quick setup for continuous integration: push to a specific branch and run deployment scripts to see updates on the corresponding environment
  • We can quickly see if there is something wrong: whenever we make changes, Codeship runs the whole build and then tests the code before deploying to production. The default setting is to run build and test on all branches, so there is usually no feature branch with a red build that we are not aware of
  • Deployment scripts are very easy to configure and with the limited (but powerful) setup options, we usually have a clear process that describes the deployment. This way everything is clear, even for engineers new to the project.

Cons

Codeship

  • Copeship is an external service, I can't install it inside our company's private network
  • I can't use it for free for my private repos
  • No open source support
Maxim Milovanov | TrustRadius Reviewer

GoCD

  • UI can be improved
  • Location for settings can be re-arranged
  • API for setting up pipeline

Alternatives Considered

Codeship

Back in those days, we didn't know about Gitlab, and Bitbucket didn't provide a CI pipeline. Jenkins is just too much for the simple tasks we wanted to achieve, besides, we didn't have a dedicated server for the sole purpose of having our code pipelined though continuous integration and continuous delivery. Codeship presented itself as a simple, straight-to-business and inexpensive way of achieving CI and CD at our company.

GoCD

I prefer using GoCD compared to Jenkins. The UI makes sense, I like the simplicity to hit the 'Play' button for a straightforward deployment of the 'Play +' if you need to override some settings when deploying whereas Jenkins, you have the whole page for each pipeline. The environment makes sense but can often confuse the user while GoCD simply has a drop-down to select your environment.

Return on Investment

Codeship

  • Faster code pushes with less headaches has led to better efficiency as well as reduced frustration within the development team.
Alex Lada | TrustRadius Reviewer

GoCD

  • ROI has been good since it's open source
  • Settings.xml need to be backed up periodically. It contains all the settings for your pipelines! We accidentally deleted before and we have to restore and re-create several missing pipelines
  • More straight forward use of API and allows filtering e.g., pull all pipelines triggered after this date
