AWS CodeCommit vs BinTray: 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; BinTray: Deploy jar and binary files to a public server. Easy integration with Maven, Gradle, Yum and Apt. Bintray offers developers the fastest way to publish and consume OSS software releases. With Bintray's full self-service platform developers have full control over their published software and how it is distributed to the world.
AWS CodeCommit and BinTray can be categorized as "Code Collaboration & Version Control" tools.
Some of the features offered by AWS CodeCommit are:
- Access Control
On the other hand, BinTray provides the following key features:
- One place for all your Java, Yum and Apt packages
- Use smart REST API to retrieve and search for binaries
- Easy integration with Maven, Gradle, Yum and Apt
"Free private repos" is the primary reason why developers consider AWS CodeCommit over the competitors, whereas "Free for opensource packages" was stated as the key factor in picking BinTray.

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.
