ElasticBox vs Octopus Deploy: What are the differences?
Developers describe ElasticBox as "Develop, deploy and manage applications on any cloud". Configure and deploy applications using CM tools like Docker, Chef, and Puppet. Your application is fully mobile across all major cloud environments because it’s decoupled from underlying cloud infrastructure. On the other hand, Octopus Deploy is detailed as "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.
ElasticBox and Octopus Deploy belong to "Deployment as a Service" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by ElasticBox are:
- development, instance management, collaboration
- environment management
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

Using this in an environment with about 10 separate development teams. All the teams love this product and how easy it is to get started. It's very well put together, elegant, simple UI that is powerful to use, easy to understand and follow. I HIGHLY recommend this product to any shop.
It says it's for .NET and it's geared for that. But you could use it for just about any type of deployment given it's capabilities to deploy via FTP.
This is our CD platform. We use TFS for gated-checks and release builds. A release build packages all our components, pushes these packages to Octopus and triggers a release into our Development environment. A suite of integration tests are run and finally if all is successful the team gets a notification on Slack that a new release is available. This can then get promoted through all our non-production environments, Finally, we use offline deployments as we are not yet allowed to promote all the way to production from Octopus. Offline deployments are great as they allow us to retain our tried and tested deployment process but instead, humans become the tentacles when deploying in prod and pre-prod.
