“One of the biggest assets of Buddy, on the other hand, is
the ease of configuration. We have over 30 projects on
Buddy, including ‘monolith’ with our legacy app and sso
microservice. It has a staging pipeline for in-house preview
updated on-the-fly with tested iterations of the service”

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

What about security?

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.

Is Buddy free to use?

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.

Is there a self-hosted version of Buddy?

Yes, Buddy offers a standalone license. Self-hosted version of Buddy can be installed on your own server or on any cloud service (e.g. DigitalOcean, AWS, Azure). Feature-wise, there are no differences between the cloud and standalone versions of our app.

How fast are deployments in Buddy?

It all depends on individual builds. However, Buddy is based on changesets, which means that only changed files are deployed. This feature greatly reduces build and deployment times.

What does it mean, that Buddy has 'GUI/YAML configuration'

Buddy allows for easy pipeline configuration using our GUI. However, if someone is used to working with manual pipeline configuration within the repository, it is possible to export the pipeline to a YAML file.
