Mina vs ScriptRock: What are the differences?

Mina: Really fast deployer and server automation tool. Mina works really fast because it's a deploy Bash script generator. It generates an entire procedure as a Bash script and runs it remotely in the server. Compare this to the likes of Vlad or Capistrano, where each command is run separately on their own SSH sessions. Mina only creates one SSH session per deploy, minimizing the SSH connection overhead; ScriptRock: QA for DevOps. ScriptRock helps you scan, compare and control configurations and changes in the datacenter or the cloud.

Mina and ScriptRock can be categorized as "Server Configuration and Automation" tools.

Some of the features offered by Mina are:

  • Safe deploys. New releases are built on a temp folder. If the deploy script fails at any point, the build is deleted and it’d be as if nothing happened.
  • Locks. Deploy scripts rely on a lockfile ensuring only one deploy can happen at a time.
  • Works with anything. While Mina is built with Rails projects it mind, it can be used on just about any type of project deployable via SSH, Ruby or not.

On the other hand, ScriptRock provides the following key features:

  • End To End Visibility - Get visibility of your environment at the push of a button
  • Comparisons In Context - Quickly identify differences across machines to pinpoint drift
  • Easy To Use - Change the way you manage configurations and change

Mina is an open source tool with 4.05K GitHub stars and 453 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Mina's open source repository on GitHub.
