AWS CodeCommit vs Azure Container Service: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is Azure Container Service? Deploy and manage containers using the tools you choose. Azure Container Service optimizes the configuration of popular open source tools and technologies specifically for Azure. You get an open solution that offers portability for both your containers and your application configuration. You select the size, the number of hosts, and choice of orchestrator tools, and Container Service handles everything else.

AWS CodeCommit belongs to "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category of the tech stack, while Azure Container Service can be primarily classified under "Containers as a Service".

Some of the features offered by AWS CodeCommit are:

  • Collaboration
  • Encryption
  • Access Control

On the other hand, Azure Container Service provides the following key features:

  • Create a container hosting solution optimized for Azure
  • Scale and orchestrate applications using Apache Mesos or Docker Swarm
  • Use popular open source, client-side tooling

"Free private repos" is the primary reason why developers consider AWS CodeCommit over the competitors, whereas "Easy to setup, very agnostic" was stated as the key factor in picking Azure Container Service.

iMedicare, Complete Business Online, and Sidecar Interactive are some of the popular companies that use AWS CodeCommit, whereas Azure Container Service is used by QwikSense, Veris, and Sensewaves. AWS CodeCommit has a broader approval, being mentioned in 25 company stacks & 17 developers stacks; compared to Azure Container Service, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 7 developer stacks.

Advice on AWS CodeCommit and Azure Container Service

Hi, I need advice. In my project, we are using Bitbucket hosted on-prem, Jenkins, and Jira. Also, we have restrictions not to use any plugins for code review, code quality, code security, etc., with bitbucket. Now we want to migrate to AWS CodeCommit, which would mean that we can use, let's say, Amazon CodeGuru for code reviews and move to AWS CodeBuild and AWS CodePipeline for build automation in the future rather than using Jenkins.

Now I want advice on below.

  1. Is it a good idea to migrate from Bitbucket to AWS Codecommit?
  2. If we want to integrate Jira with AWS Codecommit, then how can we do this? If a developer makes any changes in Jira, then a build should be triggered automatically in AWS and create a Jira ticket if the build fails. So, how can we achieve this?

Hi Kavita. It would be useful to explain in a bit more detail the integration to Jira you would like to achieve. Some of the Jira plugins will work with any git repository, regardless if its github/bitbucket/gitlab.
