AWS CodeDeploy vs AWS CodePipeline: What are the differences?

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 CodePipeline: Continuous delivery service for fast and reliable application updates. CodePipeline builds, tests, and deploys your code every time there is a code change, based on the release process models you define.

AWS CodeDeploy belongs to "Deployment as a Service" category of the tech stack, while AWS CodePipeline can be primarily classified under "Continuous Deployment".

Some of the features offered by AWS CodeDeploy are:

  • 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

On the other hand, AWS CodePipeline provides the following key features:

  • Workflow Modeling
  • AWS Integrations
  • Pre-Built Plugins

"Automates code deployments" is the top reason why over 15 developers like AWS CodeDeploy, while over 3 developers mention "Simple to set up" as the leading cause for choosing AWS CodePipeline.

According to the StackShare community, AWS CodeDeploy has a broader approval, being mentioned in 57 company stacks & 14 developers stacks; compared to AWS CodePipeline, which is listed in 30 company stacks and 15 developer stacks.

      At Kloud.io we use Node.js for our backend Microservices and Angular 2 for the frontend. We also use React for a couple of our internal applications. Writing services in Node.js in TypeScript improved developer productivity and we could capture bugs way before they can occur in the production. The use of Angular 2 in our production environment reduced the time to release any new features. At the same time, we are also exploring React by using it in our internal tools. So far we enjoyed what React has to offer. We are an enterprise SAAS product and also offer an on-premise or hybrid cloud version of #kloudio. We heavily use Docker for shipping our on-premise version. We also use Docker internally for automated testing. Using Docker reduced the install time errors in customer environments. Our cloud version is deployed in #AWS. We use AWS CodePipeline and AWS CodeDeploy for our CI/CD. We also use AWS Lambda for automation jobs.
