Built-in AWS Lambda support

AWS Lambda is a popular Serverless technology allowing teams to run code without worrying about the infrastructure required to run it. Octopus is adding support to scale your AWS Lambda deployments out-of-the-box.

Dynamic infrastructure

Modern cloud providers like Azure, AWS and GCP make it easy to create infrastructure on demand to scale your applications and services. Currently, you need to explicitly register/deregister new infrastructure with Octopus to deploy to it. With reflected cloud targets, Octopus will automatically discover infrastructure from cloud subscriptions, making it easier to manage your cloud infrastructure and services.

ServiceNow integration

ServiceNow is one of the leading ITSM solutions and it’s common for companies to manage changes with it. We are building native integration with ServiceNow so teams can link releases to change requests and pause deployments to production until approvals are met.

Config as Code for Runbooks

Octopus is adding configuration as code support for runbook processes. This complements our existing support for version controlled deployment processes, and it means you can see your operations process in your Git repo next to your related application code or other operation files.

When Config as Code is enabled for a project, you can continue to use the Octopus UI as you always have, or you can edit the text files in your favorite editor.

Built-in container registry

Octopus has acquired Dist, a fast and reliable artifact repository for containers and Java artifacts. Octopus has a built-in package repository for a variety of package formats, but it doesn’t support container images. We are exploring how the Dist technology and expertise of the Dist team can help us add this capability for a low latency, secure, and integrated container registry.

DevOps Insights

We’ll make it easier for you to improve your DevOps performance by surfacing key metrics such as the big four DORA metrics. With valuable insights that help guide your improvement efforts, you’ll be able to see the history of your projects’ DevOps performance, uncover the unknowns that could be impacting your success, plan what to improve next and validate whether you are achieving the right impact.
