"Nifty tool to speed up delivery process"

What do you like best?

XL Deploy does several things right. A great example is the uploadable zip archive that may have the full app executable, configurations, database content etc... Can use environment specific parameters by using placeholders, fills them up from a key-value table. Has plugin support, mainly for java and .net, deploy scripts are standardized. Can deploy to several environments at a time, say test, development, production.It keeps a detailed version history, including the database, key-value tables. The ability to rollback to an earlier version with just a few clicks is just awesome. The dashboard is pretty good too.

What do you dislike?

A few problems that still linger are with the custom dependencies. We sometimes got a buggy deps that crashed the build, Also, the dashboard will not always report information reliably. It might show build successful but upon opening detailed status we got to see stack error when the deployment did not work. Some stability issues with plugins need to be solved. All things considered, only the dashboard is the mission critical problem that we have faced.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Should give it a spin. While it is a pain to set up properly, I think the end results just might be worth it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can easily deploy to several environments, fast. We use Jenkins for CI and DeployIt to push to our production servers.

"Automated Way To Deploy Application Releases "

What do you like best?

With XL Deploy, we can easily repeat complex deployments to vastly different web container without much Hassle. The plugin system augments XL Deploy and covers most of today's requirements, extensibility is always a big plus. Detailed status about every stage in the pipeline helps iron out any issues. Can use packages built with TFS for automatic deployments. Can create a scratch project with simple pipeline. Supports maven. Some of these are great features, some we can live without but we are using it all.

What do you dislike?

The initial setup is not as streamlined as I would like. Documentation is hard to process. The GUI is a mess, requiring proprietary software to view in a browser. More complex pipelines can not be visualized as easily. Plugin backward compatibility is something I would like rather than fast pace updates that has a specific dependency. Can not replicate actual command line.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Frankly, our release frequency has gone up by several factors. I recommend you to try this out as it is simply impossible that you will get burned if you follow the instructions.
