TeamCity

TeamCity is well suited for an organization using continuous integration, meaning you release code to production often, and an agile project management system. There are free versions available for small teams and enterprise versions available for large teams with many different builds.TeamCity is probably overkill for basic e-commerce or blog website builds that do not require much development after the initial launch

Travis CI

If your company embraces open source and uses a lot of the workflows that are prevalent in startups, Travis CI is indispensable. It comes with a lot of tools that thrive in that ecosystem. It probably won't be appreciated by companies that are traditionally more closed where everything is behind a firewall.

Pros

TeamCity

  • Fully customizable build process. Each step of the build process can be parameterized and customized to address specific needs of particular applications. This allowed us to easily convert from a custom VM-based environment to our current Docker-based environment.
  • Manages large numbers of build agents seamlessly. This allows us to run multiple builds on many different applications in a most efficient manner.
  • Build steps can be managed in an arbitrary manner, allowing some parts of the process to proceed in parallel while restricting others to depend on completion of all relevant steps.

Travis CI

  • It is very simple to configure a range of environment versions and settings in a simple YAML file.
  • It integrates very well with Github, Bitbucket, or a private Git repo.
  • The Travis CI portal beautifully shows you your history and console logs. Everything is presented in a very clear and intuitive interface.

Cons

TeamCity

  • Reading build output logs can be a pain at times, as they aren't really parsed; just long lines of output.
  • When you have multiple projects and branches, determining what is currently building, what is pending, and what has failed can be difficult.

Travis CI

  • I think they could have a cheaper personal plan. I'd love to use Travis on personal projects, but I don't want to publish them nor I can pay $69 a month for personal projects that I don't want to be open source.
  • There is no interface for configuring repos on Travis CI, you have to do it via a file in the repo. This make configuration very flexible, but also makes it harder for simpler projects and for small tweaks in the configuration.

TravisCI hasn't had much changes made to its software and has thus fallen behind compared to many other CI/CD applications out there. I can only give it a 5 because it does what it is supposed to do but lacks product innovation.

TeamCity doesn't slow down when integrating with other tools. It's one of the faster CI tools I've seen. Pages load very quickly, reports are near instant, build logs and the pipeline images are live, and it handles anything we throw at it.

They really need to ramp up on their documentation. Otherwise, Travis CI is really great and they support open source initiatives. Being a proponent of open source, using their service helps them improve their work and keep improving their services. Their tool has helped improve open source software and the free tier makes it a great tool for teams with smaller budgets.

Alternatives Considered

TeamCity

TeamCity is a great on-premise Continuous Integration tool.Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) is a hosted SAAS application in Microsoft's Cloud.VSTS is a Source Code Repository, Build and Release System, and Agile Project Management Platform - whereas TeamCity is a Build and Release System only.TeamCity's interface is easier to use than VSTS, and neither have a great deployment pipeline solution. But VSTS's natural integration with Microsoft products, Microsoft's Cloud, Integration with Azure Active Directory, and free, private, Source Code repository - offer additional features and capabilities not available with Team City alone.

Travis CI

Jenkins is much more complicated to configure and start using. Although, one you have done that, it's extremely powerful and full of features. Maybe many more than Travis CI. As per TeamCity, I would never go back to using it. It's also complicated to configure but it is not worth the trouble. Codeship supports integration with GitHub, GitLab and BitBucket. I've only used it briefly, but it seems to be a nice tool.

Return on Investment

TeamCity

  • It has drastically improved the turnaround time for building and deploying projects to Production
  • The build process can be augmented by adding build servers quickly
  • In my opinion the licensing cost is not expensive at least for small to medium enterprises, although I haven't looked in detail into how it changes when you move up.

Travis CI

  • It's improved my ability to deliver working code, increasing my development velocity.
  • It increases confidence that your own work (and those of external contributors) does not have any obvious bugs, provided you have sufficient test coverage.
  • It helps to ensure consistent standards across a team (you can integrate process elements like "go lint" and other style checks as part of your build).
  • It's zero-cost for public/open source projects, so the only investment is a few minutes setting up a build configuration file (hence the return is very high).
  • The .travis.yml file is a great way for onboarding new developers, since it shows how to bootstrap a build environment and run a build "from scratch".
