Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful segregated application building, reliable, and good supportWhat is our primary use case?Bamboo is used for different Java and Angular applications.What is most valuable?In Bamboo, build and deployment have been segregated. The build plan and deployment plan are different. When comparing Bamboo to other solutions, the native feature you will not find in another tool, such as Jenkins. They have segregated the build and deployment plan. This means, building the application and deploying it are two separate parts in Bamboo, they have segregated it apart from the UI. This makes the tool a bit better compared to other tools.What needs improvement?Bamboo can improve by providing more with scripting, such as they have with Jenkins. Bamboo is more UI-driven at this time, Jenkins is going in that direction too.For how long have I used the solution?I have been using Bamboo for approximately five years.What do I think about the stability of the solution?Bamboo has been stable in our experience.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?The solution is scalable.We have approximately 15 people using this solution in my organization.How are customer service and support?We have escalated some questions to the Atlassian support team. They have a good team for support.I would rate the technical support of Bamboo a four out of five.How was the initial setup?If we compare the initial setup of Bamboo's with Jenkins, Jenkins's setup is easier. Bamboo comes with more configuration when you start setting it up. However, Bamboo is more of an enterprise tool as compared to Jenkins because it supports different databases. You can configure Bamboo with MySQL, Oracle, or any database. This is why the setup, requires more configuration, but the setup is straightforward. It is not that complex, once a person has done it they become aware of it and can do it again with less trouble.What about the implementation team?We did the implementation of the solution ourselves.We have a team that does the maintenance of the solution.What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?If Bamboo could provide more flexibility on pricing, that would help. On the agent side, if you want to increase the number of agents it should be less expensive. If they can provide some better pricing model, it will help, whether we are going to use it or are already using it.We have a standard license to use the solution. There can be some additional cost if we use some commercial plugins.Which other solutions did I evaluate?I have evaluated other solutions such as, Jenkins.What other advice do I have?I rate Bamboo an eight out of ten.Which deployment model are you using for this solution?On-premisesDisclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Data solution that integrates with Jira and Bitbucket for the convenient deployment of appsWhat is our primary use case?We use Bamboo to deploy our apps to local test servers and then to production.What is most valuable?The most useful feature of Bamboo is its integration with other solutions such as Jira and BitBucket, also offered by Atlassian. It is easier to use tools all provided by one vendor.What needs improvement?We are considering moving to a cloud solution and to use Bitbucket pipeline because of the features it offers. From a hosting perspective, it's easier to make use of solutions that are hosted in the cloud rather than to maintain the tool on-premise. This is not feasible with Bamboo.A feature I would like to see added is the integration with quality assurance reports when you run automated tests such as a Selenium test. It would be great to have the results visualised to understand the quality of a build. It is possible to do this manually but it requires a lot of configuration.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?Scalability depends on the use case. If it is really a big customer with a lot of tests, it might not be a scalable option for them.One of our enterprise customers were not satisfied with the scalability of the solution. This customer wanted to develop a financial system and needed to run an enormous amount of tests automatically which resulted in some problems.How are customer service and support?In some countries, the local or technical support for some solutions from Atlassian is not present. You need to go to the community to write your question or write a ticket to Atlassian to access their support team.Their response is not always very useful. Some of the questions they have answered quickly and correctly; other questions have taken longer.How would you rate customer service and support?PositiveHow was the initial setup?The initial setup was straightforward but we are an IT company so did this easily with the resources we have.What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The server products for small teams used to offer excellent pricing. However, Atlassian has since changed the offering and the pricing is more expensive. I do still think the solution offers good value for money.What other advice do I have?I would advise those investigating this solution to start small with a step-by-step approach and adapt as their experience grows. I would suggest that you start with the build, and once you master the build, focus on deployment. It is important to consider whether an on-premise or cloud solution is best suited before getting started.Which deployment model are you using for this solution?On-premisesDisclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:PARTNER
