Buddy vs Jenkins



Weekly updates

Cloud configuration

Security audits

Pipeline setup

15-minute configuration via GUI with
instant export to YAML

Setup can take 6-10 hours as every action
requires a dedicated plugin that needs to be troubleshot for functionality


Dependencies and Docker layers are cached
in isolated containers optimized for performance

To improve performance, you need to manually tweak every plugin or upgrade the machine


Intuitive UI/UX allows even non-tech users
to create and manage pipelines

Jenkins requires a full-time DevOps engineer
to configure, monitor and manage your pipelines

“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?

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?
