The tool has very great features for CI and CD. We can setup TeamCity for builidng applications in windows and unix environments and also can setup for deployments.

TeamCity was very easy to integrate with other build tools like Ant,Nant, Msbuild and Maven and Powershell and shell to implement the automated build and deployment process.

TeamCity Publish Artifacts feature is one of the best of its available features. Using this feature, any one can deploy the code or build directly from Teamcity to any environment(dev/testing/preprod and prod).

TeamCity was a great tool and it has no limits in customization with respective to CI and CD of any organizational SCM/Release Management process.
