WordOps is an opensource command-line tool used for creating optimized webservers for WordPress. It can be used on any server at any provider or hosting service – as long as it meets the minimum WordOps requirements.
Both WPCloudDeploy and WordOps allow you to deploy optimized WordPress servers. All the key WordPress management tools are available in both offerings including:
Additionally, both WPCloudDeploy and WordOps are open-source products available on Github.
There are three key differences between WPCloudDeploy and WordOps:
Because both WPCloudDeploy and WordOps are open-source products, they offer similar advantages when it comes to customization.
As an experienced WordPress developer or manager, you can do many of the WPCD customizations yourself. Or you can ask any other WP developer to do the work for you. Or you can ask us of course.
Since WordOps is command line driven and your customers might never see it, only English is supported for interaction.
WPCloudDeploy can adopt any language you need for your customer interactions, simply by providing the translation terms using any of the many standard WP translation tools.
WordOps does not have any direct support server providers – it’s all bring your own server style.
WPCloudDeploy has built-in support for 12 providers (10 public cloud providers & 2 private cloud providers) as well as ability to “bring your own server”.
WPCloudDeploy also has an extension toolkit where you can build your own provider. Or you can ask to have one built for you at a cost of around 3K (for providers that generally follow the openstack api style format.)
WordOps is all about the command line – EVERYTHING is driven from the command line.
WPCloudDeploy uses Bash scripts that you can execute in either of two ways:
Sites deployed on WordOps uses a LEMP stack that is fully optimized for WordPress. It also includes integrations to multiple DNS services.
WPCloudDeploy supports both a LEMP stack (Linux, NGINX, MySql/MariaDB, PHP) and a LOMP stack (Linux, OpenLiteSpeed, MySql/MariaDB, PHP).
WordOps is 100% free – it has no premium tier (yet).
WPCloudDeploy offers multiple tired pricing levels, including a free tier. It charges a single annual fee or lifetime fee with no monthly fee option.
You can transfer your sites using any WordPress backup tool. We recommend UPDRAFT PLUS though many folks seem to prefer using DUPLICATOR PRO (something we’re far less familiar with).
