Mina vs VisualOps: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is VisualOps? Visual DevOps Automation for Amazon Web Services. VisualOps has a WYSIWYG editor to design, configure and provision your AWS cloud applications. Once the applications are deployed, VisualOps continuously monitors and manages the apps to ensure they always run in the defined states.

Mina and VisualOps can be primarily classified 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, VisualOps provides the following key features:

  • drag-n-drop components to build your AWS infrastructure
  • clicks instances to setup the software configuration (package, file, code, etc.)
  • single click to deploy, within minutes the app is ready to use!

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.
