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 Templates

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.

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.

Shout out to @OctopusDeploy for making their software so easy to work with. Just upgraded a 2 year out of date instance and migrated it to a new server and it worked with no effort beyond what their documentation said to do.

We've been overhauling our internal infrastructure and back-end systems over the past month, including a move back to full @OctopusDeploy deployments; rediscovering how nice it is to have a platform-agnostic orchestrator that can deploy practically anything, anywhere ❤

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 https://buff.ly/2JyRmTY
