Our story & focus
Founded in 2012, we are a bootstrapped, profitable and conservatively-managed company, with a focus on world-class engineering and customer service.
Our goal isn't to solve everything related to DevOps, but to focus specifically on being "best-in-class" in the release, deployment and operations parts of DevOps. We hope you'll combine Octopus with other best-in-class solutions to build a world-class DevOps capability.
Octopus Deploy began as a spare time project in 2010, based on our experiences with the difficulty of deploying software and delivering projects when consulting to enterprises and mid-sized companies. Deployment was often bolted on to the end of a CI/build process. We think deployments are much more complicated than most CI tools recognize, and we've spent the past 8 years innovating and setting the standard in this space.
We don't think it's a stretch to say that if your deployment is very complicated, Octopus is more likely to be able to solve it more elegantly than any other deployment software can. Recently, we've branched out a little, first into release management - where customers have been asking us for a long time to help solve all of the orchestration and co-ordination problems they face - and more recently into IT operations automation, as we saw that many companies were using Octopus not just to deploy software, but to automate all of the steps associated with keeping the software running.
