AWS CodeCommit vs Docker: What are the differences?
Developers describe AWS CodeCommit as "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. On the other hand, Docker is detailed as "Enterprise Container Platform for High-Velocity Innovation". The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere.
AWS CodeCommit belongs to "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category of the tech stack, while Docker can be primarily classified under "Virtual Machine Platforms & Containers".
Some of the features offered by AWS CodeCommit are:
- Access Control
On the other hand, Docker provides the following key features:
- Integrated developer tools
- open, portable images
- shareable, reusable apps
"Free private repos" is the primary reason why developers consider AWS CodeCommit over the competitors, whereas "Rapid integration and build up" was stated as the key factor in picking Docker.
Docker is an open source tool with 60.1K GitHub stars and 17.4K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Docker's open source repository on GitHub.
