“We used DeployBot for the longest time but we just had so many inexplicable issues and frustratingly timed downtime along with slow response times. Buddy has wiped the floor on all of these points. It takes a much more user focussed approach to deployment, giving you all the bits and pieces needed to construct a deployment/build system exactly how you need it”

Buddy is a relief for every developer. It's very easy to setup a pipeline for a server and there are tons of possibilities on how to build or deploy your website. We use Buddy for every website since 2020 and it saved us lots of time!

Before Buddy, we relied on tools like DeployBot to automate our deployments. Buddy is better in every conceivable way, and it doesn't require a PhD in Computer Science to setup or force you to structure your app in a specific way.

Buddy's UI is the most intuitive of any CI/CD tool that I've tried. It's simple to set up new projects and pipelines without needing to add a configuration file. I have personal experience with Jenkins, Semaphore, CircleCI, Bitbucket Pipelines, DeployBot, and DeployHQ; Buddy is the best by far.
Frequently Asked Questions
How is Buddy different from other CI/CD tools?The main difference is the unique UX that allows you to click up the whole delivery process in the UI instead of manually scripting it. This way, you and everybody on your team can configure and update pipelines in a couple of minutes without assistance from a dedicated DevOps engineer.
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.
Is Buddy secure?
Is Buddy free to use?Buddy starts off with a 14-day trial. During this time you can check out our platform using the resources of our PRO plan. Once your trial comes to an end, you can select a free plan with slightly reduced resources and continue using Buddy uninterrupted.
Does Buddy support Docker on the free plan?Yes, Buddy offers a full Docker support for all plans without any extra fees.
