AWS CodePipeline vs Buildkite: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is Buildkite? Fast, secure and scalable CI/CD for all your software projects. CI and build automation tool that combines the power of your own build infrastructure with the convenience of a managed, centralized web UI. Used by Shopify, Basecamp, Digital Ocean, Venmo, Cochlear, Bugsnag and more.

AWS CodePipeline and Buildkite are primarily classified as "Continuous Deployment" and "Continuous Integration" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by AWS CodePipeline are:

      I use Buildkite because it's the only CI system I've found that strikes a reasonable balance between flexibility and usability. You can accomplish pretty much any standard CI task out of the box with a simple, easy to understand interface and sane defaults, while the hooks and pipeline systems offer enough configurability to rival Jenkins - but without the misery that using Jenkins is certain to entail.

      I use Buildkite because it balances enormous flexibility with easy out of the box configuration. We use it for everything from automating builds (which involves running huge test suites where the parallel builds feature is invaluable) to doing nightly batch jobs for our production environment. Super flexible, amazing tool
