Overall Satisfaction with Octopus Deploy

We use Octopus Deploy to deploy software across the whole estate and to ensure version control is adhered. Octopus has been great in allowing us to expand across the world and has become an important tool in our product cycle. It's a shame that their change in pricing structure for their cloud service is now pricing us out of continuing to use the service long term.
  • Multiple deployments
  • Version control
  • Pricing structure
  • UI is clunky when you have multiple sites in your infrastructure
  • If deploying to single points in 1 area there's no way to represent this is the case and just shows as if everything was deployed to
  • The ability to deploy software updates on the fly is amazing
  • The return on investment has got to the point where we're going to have to look to replace it in the next 12 months due to spiraling costs.
Never had to deal with the support as not the account holder but the person who uses it the most in the business.

Do you think Octopus Deploy delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Octopus Deploy's feature set?


Did Octopus Deploy live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Octopus Deploy go as expected?


Would you buy Octopus Deploy again?


It's a very nice platform to use though the UI is a bit of a mess when you have more than about 5 sites you're deploying to. Not being able to see a breakdown very easily when you could have different version of software within the same deployment area on different machines could do with improving a lot.
I think for any business having to manage custom software at multiple endpoints there's not really anything better. It's just the new pricing model is pretty extreme and will price out any small to medium enterprises from their service. I love the product even with all the UI issues but yeah currently having trouble recommending it because the cost to service is now out of control.
