Buildkite vs Octopus Deploy: What are the differences?

Buildkite: Fast, secure and scalable CI/CD for all your software projects. CI and build automation tool that combines the power of your own build infrastructure with the convenience of a managed, centralized web UI. Used by Shopify, Basecamp, Digital Ocean, Venmo, Cochlear, Bugsnag and more; Octopus Deploy: Automated deployment for .NET. Octopus works with your build server to enable reliable, secure, automated releases of ASP.NET applications and Windows Services into test, staging and production environments, whether they are in the cloud or on-premises.

Buildkite can be classified as a tool in the "Continuous Integration" category, while Octopus Deploy is grouped under "Deployment as a Service".

Some of the features offered by Buildkite are:

  • Fast and stable builds
  • Open source agent runs on almost any machine and architecture
  • Freedom to use your own internal or pre-release tools and services

On the other hand, Octopus Deploy provides the following key features:

  • Deploy on-premises or to the cloud, securely
  • Built for .NET developers
  • Configuration and scripting

"Great customer support" is the primary reason why developers consider Buildkite over the competitors, whereas "Powerful" was stated as the key factor in picking Octopus Deploy.
