AWS CodeDeploy vs Go.CD: What are the differences?

Developers describe AWS CodeDeploy as "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. On the other hand, Go.CD is detailed as "Open source continuous delivery tool allows for advanced workflow modeling and dependencies management". GoCD is an open source continuous delivery server created by ThoughtWorks. GoCD offers business a first-class build and deployment engine for complete control and visibility.

AWS CodeDeploy belongs to "Deployment as a Service" category of the tech stack, while Go.CD can be primarily classified under "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, Go.CD provides the following key features:

  • Model complex workflows with dependency management and parallel execution
  • Easy to pass once-built binaries between stages
  • Visibility into your end-to-end workflow. Track a change from commit to deploy at a glance

"Automates code deployments" is the top reason why over 15 developers like AWS CodeDeploy, while over 29 developers mention "Open source" as the leading cause for choosing Go.CD.

Go.CD is an open source tool with 4.98K GitHub stars and 789 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Go.CD's open source repository on GitHub.
