The goal of continuous deployment is to accelerate the release cycles of new code, and to get the code into production as soon as possible. Automated continuous deployment tools are necessary if an enterprise wants to rollout code to end-users faster. These tools rely on instrumentation to ensure functionality, and on infrastructure to combat defects not recognized by automated health checks. Here are the six best enterprise deployment tools to look at if you’re interested in speeding up the Application Life Cycle (ALM). To check out each of the solutions and what they offer, click on their names in each section below.
RapidDeploy is an application release and deployment automation tool built for enterprise continuous delivery. RapidDeploy enables reliable and repeatable application deployments across complex environments. This tool is coded to enable users to create a repeatable project plan that can make a server orchestration designer that defines deployment steps and targets, and manage error logs for future updates.
Octopus Deploy is designed to simplify the automated deployment of Microsoft’s ASP.NET applications, Windows Services, and databases into testing, staging, and production environments. This solution provides an agent called Tentacle that supports deployment to virtual machines, including Docker, Amazon Web Services, and Microsoft Azure. Octopus Deploy can prevent deployments to production unless they have gone through earlier test environments.
DeployBot is a deployment application designed to build and ship code anywhere in one process. DeployBot has the option of deploying code manually or automatically across multiple environments. This application enables users to operate API endpoints to trigger builds. It can also build and compile code using a script before deploying it to the server, removing the need for an additional service that would complete such a task.
ElasticBox can deploy in public, private, and hybrid cloud environments like Amazon Web Services and Google. This application bolsters standardized deployment functions, enabling consistent configuration and application lifecycle management. ElasticBox can model, autoconfigure, and upgrade applications across multiple environments.
CA Nolio is an application service automation software for deploying and managing applications across data centers. Before deployment, this application has automated, continuous testing for application delivery. Nolio has a continuous delivery orchestration tool that can manage the delivery pipeline across multiple servers.
Google’s Cloud Deployment Manager enables developers to design, deploy, and reuse complex Cloud Platform solutions using simple templates. This solution has numerous features, including parallel deployment that can release many resources at once, automatic updating, and abstraction creation which can be deployed together.
