Overall Satisfaction with Codeship

We use Codeship to manage our deployment and continuous integration pipelines across different environments, version control hosts, and technology stacks. We have implemented CI/CD workflows for various clients using Codeship, and its versatility in being able to handle different cloud environments such as AWS, Azure, GCP, and even plain old on-prem servers has made it an invaluable tool that can be applied to all requirements. The fact that it is a managed service on the cloud removes the headache of having to maintain our own instance of it.
  • Inter-cloud deployments
  • Integration with different version control providers
  • Easy-to-use UI
  • Quick configuration
  • Better capabilities for deploying CI/CD pipelines as code
  • Better support for enterprise-grade customers
  • Better logical grouping capability for projects
  • Inter-cloud capability
  • Integration with different version control systems
  • Ability to deploy same codebase to multiple cloud providers
  • Managed service on the cloud
  • Reduced CI/CD server set up and maintenance time by 100%
  • Speeded up creation of deployment pipelines by 15%
  • Decreased build issue debugging time by 5%
Codeship is easier to use than Jenkins because it does not require you to set up your own server, and it provides a large amount of out-of-the-box integrations for version control systems and cloud environments. AWS CodePipeline is native to AWS and cannot deploy applications reliably to other cloud environments such as GCP or Azure.

Do you think CloudBees Codeship delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with CloudBees Codeship's feature set?

Yes

Did CloudBees Codeship live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of CloudBees Codeship go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy CloudBees Codeship again?

Yes

Codeship is extremely well suited for projects that are version controlled on public hosting such as Github or Bitbucket, and for situations where you need to pick up code from these systems and deploy it to different cloud environments. For example, we had two projects for the same client that were hosted on Github and needed to be deployed to AWS and Heroku. The native CI/CD tools of these cloud environments could not provide a holistic solution to deploy to both environments the way Codeship did.
