Geta needed standardization as it scaled
Geta originally had several deployments running through TeamCity. As the number of projects grew, so did the need for a centralized process. When a deployment failed, the team had to determine the cause manually. Geta decided to implement DevOps to standardize its processes and streamline its CI/CD pipeline.
Scaling complex deployments with reliability and speed
After using Octopus Deploy as a proof of concept, Geta chose Octopus to optimize all its deployments. Octopus provided consistency and let the organization scale. It also supported the DevOps principles the team introduced as they grew and matured.
The team standardized their deployments using Octopus's environments, variables, and deployment targets. Simultaneously, using steps templates lets Geta customize its processes.
As Geta grew and worked with more partners, its deployments became more complex. The team needed a tool to help them transition from IIS deployments to Azure and Kubernetes deployments. They also needed to deploy APIs to their partners. Octopus has helped the team do all that and more.
Using Octopus’s Tenants feature means the team can consistently and quickly deploy to many customers and partners. Geta has also modernized its deployments. After moving from IIS to Azure, Geta is now scaling up its Kubernetes deployments with the power of Octopus.

Consistency at scale supports Geta’s modernization journey
Supporting modernization of complex deployments
Geta has reshaped its deployments using Octopus Deploy. The team moved their deployments from IIS to Azure and they’re scaling their Kubernetes deployments. By supporting a mix of deployment types, Octopus enables the company to scale at its own pace.
Consistency across varied customers and partners
Octopus allows Geta to deploy to many customers and technologies with consistency. Using multi-tenancy, Geta can manage these complex deployments with ease.
Simplifying complexity across the organization
Geta benefits from user-friendly deployment processes in Octopus, empowering more team members to deploy software. Deployment steps are also easier for everyone to understand , with clear overviews in the Octopus UI. The dashboards make deployment information accessible to anyone, regardless of their technical background.
Improved security, auditing, and compliance
Geta's deployments are secure, compliant, and auditable, thanks to Octopus Deploy's GRC features. The team use secrets management and user permissions to maintain security in deployments. They also store certificates and use notifications for expiry dates. Audit logs also help retain the auditability of their deployments.
Automated maintenance with runbooks
Geta uses Octopus’s Runbooks feature for routine maintenance in its deployment processes. The team set up automated triggers in their steps to complete nightly database backups. They also use runbooks for regular project maintenance.
