AWS CodeDeploy vs Bitrise: 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; Bitrise: Automate your mobile app development from building through testing to deployment. In short Bitrise is a Continous Integration and Delivery (CI/CD) Platform as a Service (PaaS) with a main focus on mobile app development (iOS, Android). You can automate the testing and deployment of your apps with just a few clicks. When you trigger a build a Virtual Machine is assigned to host your build and your defined Workflow (series of Steps scripts) will be executed, step by step.

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

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, Bitrise provides the following key features:

  • Continuous Delivery
  • Hosted Environment
  • Customizable Workflows

"Automates code deployments" is the primary reason why developers consider AWS CodeDeploy over the competitors, whereas "Easy setup" was stated as the key factor in picking Bitrise.
