AWS CodeDeploy vs Kubernetes: 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, Kubernetes is detailed as "Manage a cluster of Linux containers as a single system to accelerate Dev and simplify Ops". Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
AWS CodeDeploy and Kubernetes are primarily classified as "Deployment as a Service" and "Container" tools respectively.
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, Kubernetes provides the following key features:
- Lightweight, simple and accessible
- Built for a multi-cloud world, public, private or hybrid
- Highly modular, designed so that all of its components are easily swappable
"Automates code deployments" is the top reason why over 15 developers like AWS CodeDeploy, while over 134 developers mention "Leading docker container management solution" as the leading cause for choosing Kubernetes.
Kubernetes is an open source tool with 55K GitHub stars and 19.1K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Kubernetes's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, Kubernetes has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1046 company stacks & 1096 developers stacks; compared to AWS CodeDeploy, which is listed in 58 company stacks and 15 developer stacks.
