Octopus Deploy

How Opsera can power Octopus Deploy

In today’s hyper accelerated market, delivering up-to-date customer centric software products to customers at speed is only possible after a radical transformation in processes and tools. To deal with market demands, organizations are using multiple clouds and environment types.

While Octopus provides one tool to automate and accelerate deployment, adding an orchestration layer to deployment processes ensures that continuous deployment is achieved.

Opsera and Octopus have partnered to offer no code orchestration with exceptional deployment flexibility. Allow your software delivery teams to leverage industry-best DevOps practices with minimum barriers to entry.

By integrating Opsera and Octopus Deploy, teams can quickly, securely, and seamlessly build a no-code orchestration layer for end-to-end software supply chain management.

Benefits

A no-code solution for increased velocity and continuous deployment

Instead of having to train users in complex config-as-code utilized by other pipeline solutions, Opsera allows you to manage Octopus deployments to all environments in parallel (VM ware, Physical, Kubernetes, EC2, AKS, DB deployments, integration to functional testing tools like selenium etc.) - all in a no code UI. 

Using Opsera, you can use multiple deployment options with a few clicks. These include:

  • Rolling Deployments
  • Blue/green deployments
  • Canary deployments 
  • Roll back to previously known successful package

Manage secrets via vault integrations and deploy securely

Octopus offers built-in support for managing configuration variables. Secrets that vary as software releases are promoted through environments. 

Opsera extends this feature by integrating with third-party secrets management solutions such as HashiCorp Vault. This feature supports any deployment type within a few clicks.

Hashicorp Vault secures, stores, and scrupulously controls access to tokens, passwords, certificates, encryption keys, custom deployment scripts and more, ensuring flawless protection of secrets and other sensitive data. 

Opsera’s built-in integration to Hashicorp Vault enables customers to integrate Vault variables to Octopus deployments with speed and security.

No-code scripting to insert those manual steps into your pipeline process

It is unrealistic to completely remove human intervention from development and deployment pipelines, as the most complex problems are still solved by humans, not machines. Human eyes must decide the quality of user experience a certain software is providing. No machine in existence can determine ease of use, aesthetic appeal or emotional/psychological response to text or image.

Consequently, automating 100% of a delivery pipeline is the very opposite of a best practice. 

Opsera’s no-code scripting allows you to build manual steps into your pipeline and capture the process to ensure repeatable, auditable, and compliant software delivery.  Set a primary point of contact and notifications using our integrations with common communications tools. Accelerate the process by reducing time spent in back-and-forth communications outside your pipeline tools. 

Opsera integrates with MS Teams, Slack, JIRA, Service Now, and traditional email.  Enhance the manual steps by merging Octopus with Opsera, by gaining reporting and tracking in a single source of truth that simplifies audit and compliance on your product.

Dashboards to show what version of your application is deployed to what environment

Users can see who deployed which release to what environment, the release time and date, as well as deploy status (success or failure). Opsera complements this functionality and offers tools for building custom dashboards that fit all your personas and requirements.

Opsera unified insights are defined as categories and personas, such as deployment stats, SDLC stats, and SonarQube ratings and more. We also offer deployment KPIs with deployment frequency, change failure rates, end-to-end cycle time, etc.

Additionally, the enterprise team at Opsera is equipped and ready to help you build customized views designed to drive a radical transformation of your organization’s processes and protocols.
