Crucible

Crucible is well suited for situations where development teams follow a branch-based merge process, where new features or automation stories are introduced. It allows more seasoned team members to check newer team members' code to ensure standards are followed. It is probably less appropriate for smaller development teams or smaller projects, where code reviews can be less formal.

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.

Crucible

  • Supports all major source control systems such as SVN and Git.
  • Integration with Jira, Bamboo, Bitbucket, to have a complete end to end development experience.
  • Easy to use UI/UX for reviewing code changes amongst different team members.

Octopus Deploy

  • Octopus integrates nicely with TeamCity, our build server.
  • Octopus uses the same deployment packages across environments and makes it easy to track their progress across those environments.
  • Octopus makes it easy to handle configuration across environments which is usually a particularly difficult task.

Cons

Crucible

  • Crucible notifications of changes or updates to the code review are delayed as well as loading more source code is slow.
  • Crucible is formatting could use improvements for viewing customization features. For instance, allowing the user to create a new tab per file to be reviewed would be nice to have.

Octopus Deploy

  • UI is very fluffy and padded. It looks pretty but it could benefit from a more compact, information-focused design
  • Deployment process options are not always laid out in an intuitive manner. Choosing which steps to exclude, which environments or targets to deploy to, etc., is not immediately clear
  • Lack of useful reports and metrics for tracking active deployments and historical data

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

Crucible

Crucible was first on the market and the price is inexpensive. Crucible integrates with Jira Software and Atlassian Fisheye, providing the ability to track defects efficiently. SonarQube compares code to 'best standards' but not 'internal standards' and does not integrate to issue tracking. GitHub offers effective peer review, and has some integration with GitHub issues but costs more.

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.

Return on Investment

Crucible

  • It has had a large ROI for our team, as it has helped us find issues sooner than we would have had we not reviewed things properly.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Octopus Deploy

  • Reduced the amount of time that I personally spent (Architect) doing things that required a high level of expertise. I am no longer asked to, for example, do a backup of [the] production server and restore it to a lower environment. That is the following process: Click on Runbook, Click on Copy Prod > Env's Run button, select Environment, click "OK' and DONE.
  • Reduced chance of Error on our process - we had a process before where I was one of the few people (almost always the only person) who would do a backup of the production server and restore it back to a Dev/Qa environment, and then apply a process to cleanse the data and set up test users. Now, this is a simple process.
  • Reduced time we spent during our bi-weekly deployments. The process is super quick compared to what a manual process would be.
  • Reduced time it takes to add a configuration variable to the system. You add it to the config file, use it in the program, add it to Octopus (which has a step to auto-patch the Config file - even the OLD ones (we have a VB.Net App) - ADO lacks this step, so I had to write my own script to do the patch. You can see in one place the variable and all the values/environments that it applies to. If you leave the environment blank, it applies to all of them that don't have an environment selected (And unlike ADO, you can list all 5 QA environments on ONE variable if they are all the same, instead of listing all 15 environments because two of them are different from the rest).
  • Project Spin-up is quicker with Octopus.
  • Creating a runbook to do an automated task has saved us countless hours/money.
  • We can even give this to our customers and have them be able to see what is in what environment, and when it was deployed, or what runbooks got run when.
