AWS CodePipeline vs DeployBot: What are the differences?
Developers describe AWS CodePipeline as "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. On the other hand, DeployBot is detailed as "Instantly deploy from Github, Bitbucket, or Gitlab without complex scripts, commands or configs". DeployBot makes it simple to deploy your work anywhere. You can compile or process your code in a Docker container on our infrastructure, and we'll copy it to your servers once everything has been successfully built.
AWS CodePipeline and DeployBot can be primarily classified as "Continuous Deployment" tools.
Some of the features offered by AWS CodePipeline are:
- Workflow Modeling

On the other hand, DeployBot provides the following key features:

- DeployBot gathers new and changed files from your repositories since the last deployment. You can even preview the changes first.
- Files are uploaded, SSH commands are executed and deployment hooks are triggered. Everything is logged for you.
