Beanstalk vs DeployBot: What are the differences?
Beanstalk: Private code hosting for teams. A single process to commit code, review with the team, and deploy the final result to your customers; DeployBot: Instantly deploy from Github, Bitbucket, or Gitlab without complex scripts, commands or configs. DeployBot makes it simple to deploy your work anywhere. You can compile or process your code in a Docker container on our infrastructure, and we'll copy it to your servers once everything has been successfully built.
Beanstalk and DeployBot are primarily classified as "Code Collaboration & Version Control" and "Continuous Deployment" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by Beanstalk are:
- Setup and manage repositories- Import or create Subversion and Git repositories that are instantly available to your team.
- Invite team members, partners & clients- Restrict access to certain repos and provide read-only or full read/write permissions.
- Browse files and changes- Every version of every file you’ve committed to Beanstalk is just a click away. See a timeline of who made changes and view the differences between revisions. Syntax highlighting for over 70 languages.
On the other hand, DeployBot provides the following key features:

- DeployBot gathers new and changed files from your repositories since the last deployment. You can even preview the changes first.
- Files are uploaded, SSH commands are executed and deployment hooks are triggered. Everything is logged for you.
