AWS CodeBuild vs Azure DevOps: What are the differences?
AWS CodeBuild: Build and test code with continuous scaling. AWS CodeBuild is a fully managed build service that compiles source code, runs tests, and produces software packages that are ready to deploy. With CodeBuild, you don’t need to provision, manage, and scale your own build servers; Azure DevOps: Services for teams to share code, track work, and ship software. Azure DevOps provides unlimited private Git hosting, cloud build for continuous integration, agile planning, and release management for continuous delivery to the cloud and on-premises. Includes broad IDE support.
AWS CodeBuild can be classified as a tool in the "Continuous Integration" category, while Azure DevOps is grouped under "Integrated Development Environment Tools".
Some of the features offered by AWS CodeBuild are:
- Fully Managed Build Service
- Continuous Scaling
- Enables Continuous Integration
On the other hand, Azure DevOps provides the following key features:
- Agile Tools: kanban boards, backlogs, scrum boards
- Reporting: dashboards, widgets, Power BI
- Git: free private repositories, pull requests
"Pay per minute" is the primary reason why developers consider AWS CodeBuild over the competitors, whereas "Complete and powerful" was stated as the key factor in picking Azure DevOps.
According to the StackShare community, Azure DevOps has a broader approval, being mentioned in 69 company stacks & 65 developers stacks; compared to AWS CodeBuild, which is listed in 21 company stacks and 14 developer stacks.

The open-source Convox Platform-as-a-Service is built entirely on AWS cloud services.
Through this lens, it's been obvious that AWS has been missing a managed build service. For the past year we've had to work around this by building our own build service on ECS and ECR. You can read more on my AWS Missing Parts: Build Service blog post.
So I'm excited to finally have this service. After a quick weekend prototype, the service works as expected and will unlock Cheaper, Faster and Safer Builds for our systems.
This is a classic AWS service. It's tricky to figure out all the options. I recommend jumping straight to the Docker example docs:
You'll need to figure IAM, Build Project JSON, and Build Spec YAML to get it all working.
But once you do, you've unlocked managed builds on small, medium or large compute types. No instances required!
VSO/Team Services are a natural extension of my TFS experience. Manage projects, version control, testing & continuous integration pipeline (CI/CD). Integration with Azure. Full SDLC.
We use VSTS to host our repos, to manage our backlog and plan our sprints, to track our work (tasks and bugs), host our knowledge-base (wiki) and a lot more. I am the team admin.
Integrated development of c# and visual basic.NET web and desktop applications.
