Bamboo vs Octopus Deploy: What are the differences?

What is Bamboo? Tie automated builds, tests, and releases together in a single workflow. Focus on coding and count on Bamboo as your CI and build server! Create multi-stage build plans, set up triggers to start builds upon commits, and assign agents to your critical builds and deployments.

What is Octopus Deploy? Automated deployment for .NET. Octopus works with your build server to enable reliable, secure, automated releases of ASP.NET applications and Windows Services into test, staging and production environments, whether they are in the cloud or on-premises.

Bamboo can be classified as a tool in the "Continuous Integration" category, while Octopus Deploy is grouped under "Deployment as a Service".

"Integrates with other Atlassian tools" is the primary reason why developers consider Bamboo over the competitors, whereas "Powerful" was stated as the key factor in picking Octopus Deploy.
