CircleCI can be connected to any project that is hosted on GitHub by logging in using the GitHub OAuth and adding the desired repository. Whenever a new commit is pushed to GitHub, CircleCI runs the tests that have been already defined and if none of them fails, the build is deployed to the runtime environment. See More
Circle CI's web UI is clean and easy to use. It gives all the information for a single build in a feed and gives the explanation for each step of the build, what it's doing and what the step is related to. On the top it displays author information and the time and date when the build was started and finished. This is all done by giving only the most essential information without clogging the screen. See More
Support for Heroku, AWS, Engine Yard, dotCloud, Fabric, Nodejitsu, AppFog, Capistrano, Rockspace, Joynet. Integration with Heroku is solid with the ability to automatically deploy or merge branches. CircleCI is also very flexible with the deployment arrangement allowing SSH key management, deployment freedom including directly to a PaaS, using Capistrano, Fabric, arbitrary bash commands, or by auto-merging to another branch, or packaging code up to S3. See More
The user can easily compose dependencies between builds by adding snapshot and artifact dependencies, all on the one screen. All output of upstream builds is available to downstream builds. Triggering sets off the entire build chain and supports re-running of the portions of the chain that failed. See More
The fact that it is based on Java does not hinder TeamCity's ability to support different build environments. TeamCity in fact supports a large number of languages and tools for each of those languages (build runners and test frameworks). Some of the languages/platforms that are supported include: Ruby, .NET, Java. See More
Semaphore is quite easy to configure and work with. It easily integrates with GitHub and a first build is only a few clicks away. Semaphore is configured using .yaml configuration files which can be added from the web UI. There are a lot of tutorials out there that help developers configure Semaphore to their preference.

Shippable runs inside Docker containers. Docker has some specific security measures which may or may not become a hindrance in using Shippable. It may be harder for users who are not very comfortable with a Linux container environment and that can create some security problems. Even for more advanced users, it's still something more that they have to address while using Shippable. See More
Shippable is built using Docker, a popular open source Linux container. It was originally built using it's own container but when that started to become too complex, they switched to using Docker. Since the beginning Shippable was different from other CI tools because while Shippable uses a container (Docker), traditionally CI tools have used virtual machines to manage their workloads. See More
Understanding the state of your application development steps for e.g. whats running in prod, whats the last stable release that has been test approved, what versions and commit SHAs make up a particular release are all critical pieces of information that streamlines your devops workflow. Shippable is the only provider that has this built in. See More
The fact that Shippable runs inside of Docker means that it keeps a persistent state and every build will not have to revert to initial state where it needs to install every dependency from the ground up. Classic CI tools that run on virtual machines need to reset their environment every time and every time install the gems, packages and services needed. See More
Resources are to Concourse as plugins are to Jenkins. In other words, resources allow Concourse CI to do just about any work necessary in a build. But resources follow a "service provider interface" that makes them easy to build in any language (not just JVM languages) and have a clearly defined computing model, built for composition. Resources don't clutter UI or tax performance. See More
When connecting Bamboo with Stash and JIRA, details like JIRA issues, commits, reviews and approvals follow each release from development to production. If HipCHat is part of the integration, team members get notified right away in addition to email notifications. See More
While you can docker "run" "build" "exec" etc with bamboo and docker one key thing you will find you cannot do is to run your bamboo job inside a container. A job must manage the container setup and teardown, this can lead to left-over containers using memory or filesystem permissions issues if your container can run as root and leaves files behind in a mounted volume. If for example you want to run your bamboo agent in a fresh container for each build then you are out of luck and have to build this infrastructure yourself. See More
Avoid plugin hell by having most important capabilities as out-of-the-box features, not plugins. Bamboo is not just built for teams, but teams-of-teams. It has the administrative features you need to manage and maintain CI at scale. Enterprise model for access control, management, and support. See More
Bamboo is the only build server to offer first-class support for the "delivery" aspect of continuous delivery. Deployment projects automate the tedium right out of releasing into each environment, while letting you control the flow with per-environment permissions. See More
Bamboo allows using Docker containers to create build agents. Using Docker agents lets you run multiple remote agents on the same host without conflicting requirements. It makes it easier to duplicate and distribute changes to build agents, and to use scripts for creating and maintaining agents. How can you define and build your own image and push it to a registry to share? This is when Bamboo’s Docker tasks come into play. Docker tasks make it possible to build an image, run a container, and push a Docker image to a registry from within your build or deployment project. See More
Great contributions from the co community who build the service stack catalog. One of them is the "Prometheus" template which deploys a collection of containers for monitoring a platform. It's capable of querying all aspects of your environment with some nice pre-built dashboards. See More
