“Overall my experience has been absolutely amazing. I have been able to deploy
multiple technology stacks to multiple different environments, integrate PHP unit
testing, check my applications' up-time, all while viewing everything in a single
interface. Buddy has numerous 1st-party integrations to various platforms and
tools to get you started very quickly.”
