Kubernetes deployments for your whole team without being a K8s expert
Kubernetes is a fantastic platform for managing containers and scaling applications, but with it brings complexities. Spinning up clusters and deploying your applications and services has a steep learning curve.
Not a kubectl and Kubernetes deployment YAML expert? No problem.
Octopus makes this easier with rich, opinionated step templates that guide you through your first Kubernetes deployments yet give you control as you grow. You can work with as much or as little YAML as you prefer and time-saving deployment strategies save you time and frustration.
Rich Opinionated Deployment Templates
Octopus offers rich, opinionated deployment templates that hide the complexity of Kubernetes deployment YAML config. This makes it easy for your team to start working with Kubernetes and grow with the platform.
Want more control? Octopus also includes steps templates that give you full control to manage every detail with kubectl custom script steps.
You can choose to use as much YAML as you want. We do the hard work, and you can focus on building great applications.
Time-saving deployment strategies
Ship your containerized applications with built-in deployment strategies that work every time.
- Recreate pods every time
- Rolling updates
- Blue/green deployments
Pick the strategy that works best your team.
First-class Helm support
Octopus has you covered for all your Helm Chart needs.
- Deploy dependencies
- Package applications for deployment
- Templating support
Multi-region and multi-cluster deployments
Deploy to multiple Kubernetes clusters around the world with multi-region deployments.
Deploy to one cluster or hundreds using a single deployment process.
Kubernetes deployments at scale
Deploy to multiple Kubernetes clusters around the world with multi-region deployments. Create releases and deploy to one cluster or hundreds using a single deployment process.
Octopus is built for teams of all sizes with a powerful permissions model so you can customize the permissions and security of your team’s infrastructure and deployment processes. Give team members the permissions they need by sharing or restricting access to Kubernetes clusters, accounts, or projects.
Kubernetes orchestration is just the first half of the story
Easy promotions between your environments
Octopus has robust support for deploying applications through custom lifecycles. Some teams deploy through many environments like development, test, QA, staging and production whereas others simply go through staging and production. Octopus makes this easy to customise to suit your team's needs. This gives you the ability to ensure you deploy through the right flow.
Strong configuration variable replacement
Add and manage your configuration variables in a single place and scope them to your environments. This makes it easy to deploy to any environment and be confident your configuration is correct. Octopus includes rich support for updating Microsoft application setting files, JSON configuration files, YAML and pretty much any other text file.

Currently updating a deployment process in @OctopusDeploy. I forgot how easy this was to use, everything just makes sense.— David Swindells (@d_swindells) January 30, 2019
Tools like @OctopusDeploy can be great in enabling culture change, we've been able to scale and improve our configuration story since we started using it.— Neil Chalk (@_neilch) July 19, 2018
