Octopus Deploy is an up-to-date answer to the difficulties of deploying software and delivering projects when consulting to large and mid-size organisations, with a focus on best-in-class release, deployment and operations parts of DevOps.
Within development for .NET servers, QBS partners can use Octopus Deploy to get a grip on release management, complex deployments and runbook automation that will minimise outages. When a team can automate deployments and operations runbooks from a single place, breaking down dev and ops silos, reliable code can ship faster, increasing business agility and ability to respond to a fast-changing world.
Octopus is a deployment automation tool for .NET developers that can take over where continuous integration (CI) servers end for easier, simpler automations of complex application deployments in the cloud or on-prem.
It boasts high level deployment options for .NET, Java and other platforms, as well as the ability to run custom scripts and manage sensitive variables in advanced deployment patterns.
Access is well managed — teams can not only schedule releases or block broken-release promotion but restrict who can deploy to production as well as ensuring releases have been tested prior to deployment.
Binaries built once can be deployed and promoted multiple times, with a strong support offering and an intuitive dashboard making communicating correct information on deployments easier.
You can use the same deployment process across environments without needing to hardcode config settings into the process. There are also command-line tools and plugins for popular CI servers, streamlining the path to deployment as builds complete. And with the Tentacle agent, deployments whether to cloud or on-prem can be automated.
