It can be difficult to get a sense of how a product like Octopus Deploy works, without being able to interact with it. We have a ten short videos that show how to set things up, but that's not quite the same as being able to click around and explore a real server.

To help, we've created a Live Demo server:

View the live demo server

The demo server runs the latest version of Octopus, and has two projects which are deployed to seven Tentacles. You can sign in as a guest to view the server and browse around. We've made the Guest account a read-only Octopus Administrator; you can view anything, but you can't actually change the system.

There's also a demo TeamCity server which is configured to compile code and deploy to Octopus. Every hour it triggers a build and deploy, and every week it promotes a release to the Acceptance environment.

The demo projects highlight a few different features, including a rolling web application deployment, library variable sets, and configuring a Windows Service. I hope you'll find it a useful reference server!


Octopus Deploy is used by thousands of developers across the globe, from small companies to large enterprises. Find out if it meets your deployment automation needs by taking advantage of our free 30-day trial. You can spin up an instance with just a few clicks!
