Good compiling and deployment features that are ideal for open-source development

What is our primary use case?

We use Bamboo as our continuous integration server.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features are compiling and deployment."
  • "The performance around the deployment feature could be improved."

What other advice do I have?

Bamboo is a solution that I recommend, especially for open-source development organizations that use all open-source tools. Atlassian suite is the best partner for such organizations. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Fairly stable, scalable, and does CI pipeline well, but requires a lot of integration and not easy to use and learn

What is our primary use case?

We are using it to push and pull containers and other data via CI/CD pipeline.

Pros and Cons

  • "It can do the CI pipeline well."
  • "It should be much easier to use. It shouldn't require a lot of reading to be able to use it. It should have just two or three screens rather than hundreds of screens requiring a lot of clicking. It also requires a lot of integration. It has a steep learning curve. It takes a lot of time to understand and put in the data. There is also no proper training."

What other advice do I have?

I am not completely satisfied with this solution. It performs one function well, but it requires so much integration. I would advise others to use a better-integrated system rather than Bamboo. We'll be moving to XebiaLabs, now known as Digital.ai, for production and other environments. XebiaLabs is a bit better than Bamboo in some aspects. I would rate Bamboo a six out of ten. It is okay to use, but there is a lot of room for improvement.

Has good integration, is efficient, and doesn't take up other resources

What is our primary use case?

This is a part of the CI/CD. We use this tool to move into production.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's one of the best solutions in this line of work. We have many Atlassian products. We use Bamboo, JIRA, Service Desk, and some other Atlassian plugins. We like that it's easy to integrate into each other. It's a suite of services."
  • "It's a little outdated. It's three years old."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it an eight out of ten. Not a ten because the GUI is old I always have to find the right plugin. My advice to someone considering this solution is that if you have the money, buy it.

Good system customization, with good overall features and functionality

Pros and Cons

  • "One of the big things that made us choose Bamboo, is it seamlessly integrates its APIs into NetSuite, which is our main ELP system."
  • "The solution needs to support more customization in the training. What's offered is pretty generic. They need better training and should offer more guidance."

What other advice do I have?

We use the cloud deployment model. I'd recommend that solution. Everything structure and systems-wise is quite customizable. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
