“We moved from Jenkins over Teamcity to Buddy, and it's really the best thing I've seen in 8 years of industry experience. With Jenkins, adding a project in a new language or with special environment requirements always meant lots of headache”

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Buddy come with a free plan?

Buddy offers a free tier with 5 projects and 120 pipeline executions per month. You can upgrade to a higher plan with unlimited executions at any time. All new accounts start with 14 days of trial, allowing you for intense and unrestricted testing.

Why should I pay for Buddy when Jenkins is free?

In short: to ship more software faster without involving a team of DevOps engineers to configure and maintain the process. A single delivery pipeline can take up to 9-10 hours to set up by a dedicated engineer, which directly adds to the costs.

In Buddy, any developer can create a complete process in 15 minutes, including build preparation, deployment, and system notifications. The dev environment remains the same for everybody on the team, doing away with it-works-for-me compatibility errors. Builds are cached and insanely fast. Only changed files are deployed – no need to deploy the entire repo every time.
Yes, Jenkins is free – but how much money do you lose because of the issues it creates?

What about security?

When you configure Jenkins, you are forced to use third-party plugins developed by various entities. Those plugins are often discontinued or contain severe security gaps. Buddy is both PCI and SOC2 compliant, and is continuously undergoing security audits by SecurityMetrics to ensure everything is up to date with the latest security stipulations. You can read more about security measures in Buddy here.

Does Buddy support Docker?

Yes. In fact, all builds and commands are run in isolated Docker containers. This removes engineer-specific builds risks, as all developers are using exactly the same build environment. You can also build custom images from Dockerfiles and push them to Docker Hub, Amazon ECR, Google GCR, or any private Docker registry. On top of that, Buddy lets you orchestrate containers on Kubernetes clusters, including Google Kubernetes Engine, Amazon EKS, Azure AKS, and DigitalOcean Kubernetes hosting.

Can you use YAML configuration in Buddy?

Yes, Buddy supports both GUI and YAML configuration. You can create a pipeline in the GUI, export it to YAML, and keep it in version control to track progress in your project. Or you can design the whole delivery process in code, just like you did with Jenkins.

Does Buddy support microservices?

Buddy lets you attach all types of popular services and databases, such as MongoDB, MySQL, Redis, and Selenium. You do not have to download plugins to do that – all services are available from the start in every build action.
