What is Shippable?
Shippable is the first CI/CD platform purpose-built for containerized microservices. Shippable declaratively defines the infrastructure your team needs to build, test, and ship containerized applications hosted on public cloud providers like Amazon Web Services, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, etc. Shippable automates the deployment pipeline that delivers your software into production. The deployment pipeline specifies the checks that are executed against each change you submit. You can also schedule these checks using cron expressions. This helps you eliminate problems early in the pipeline before they affect developers or users, helping you iterate faster and ship more often.
What is Debian?
Debian is a free operating system ( OS ) for your computer. An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your computer run. Debian uses the Linux kernel (the core of an OS) along with thousands of software packages (also called 'packages') that are each distributed in a separate file. The packages contain the program code that does all the work, and are connected to each other in what is called a package dependency hierarchy . Each package depends on some smaller package or packages, which in turn depend on even smaller packages, and so on.

Packagecloud works with all kinds of packages, not only Debian packages. As well, you can integrate with all kinds of CI/CD tools, not only Shippable.
