AWS CodeCommit vs AWS CodeDeploy: What are the differences?
AWS CodeCommit: Fully-managed source control service that makes it easy for companies to host secure and highly scalable private Git repositories. CodeCommit eliminates the need to operate your own source control system or worry about scaling its infrastructure. You can use CodeCommit to securely store anything from source code to binaries, and it works seamlessly with your existing Git tools; AWS CodeDeploy: Coordinate application deployments to Amazon EC2 instances. AWS CodeDeploy is a service that automates code deployments to Amazon EC2 instances. AWS CodeDeploy makes it easier for you to rapidly release new features, helps you avoid downtime during deployment, and handles the complexity of updating your applications.
AWS CodeCommit and AWS CodeDeploy are primarily classified as "Code Collaboration & Version Control" and "Deployment as a Service" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by AWS CodeCommit are:
- Access Control
On the other hand, AWS CodeDeploy provides the following key features:
- AWS CodeDeploy fully automates your code deployments, allowing you to deploy reliably and rapidly
- AWS CodeDeploy helps maximize your application availability by performing rolling updates across your Amazon EC2 instances and tracking application health according to configurable rules
- AWS CodeDeploy allows you to easily launch and track the status of your deployments through the AWS Management Console or the AWS CLI
"Free private repos" is the primary reason why developers consider AWS CodeCommit over the competitors, whereas "Automates code deployments" was stated as the key factor in picking AWS CodeDeploy.

The pull requests are only merged by FF what makes all the merges hard to manage. The IAM configuration is very awkward and the unavailability to add git hooks to prevent commits to be made into the server makes this tool not much usable for a software development company.
I use CodeCommit for projects that require a tighter integration with the AWS ecosystem.
Otherwise, my default source control system as a service of choice is: GitHub.
