AWS CodePipeline vs Docker Compose: 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 Docker Compose? Define and run multi-container applications with Docker. With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.

AWS CodePipeline belongs to "Continuous Deployment" category of the tech stack, while Docker Compose can be primarily classified under "Container Tools".

"Simple to set up" is the top reason why over 3 developers like AWS CodePipeline, while over 111 developers mention "Multi-container descriptor" as the leading cause for choosing Docker Compose.

Docker Compose is an open source tool with 16.6K GitHub stars and 2.56K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Docker Compose's open source repository on GitHub.

StackShare, Typeform, and CircleCI are some of the popular companies that use Docker Compose, whereas AWS CodePipeline is used by Volta Industries, ChromaDex, and PouchNATION. Docker Compose has a broader approval, being mentioned in 795 company stacks & 625 developers stacks; compared to AWS CodePipeline, which is listed in 29 company stacks and 15 developer stacks.

Decisions about AWS CodePipeline and Docker Compose
Michael Roberts

We develop rapidly with docker-compose orchestrated services, however, for production - we utilise the very best ideas that Kubernetes has to offer: SCALE! We can scale when needed, setting a maximum and minimum level of nodes for each application layer - scaling only when the load balancer needs it. This allowed us to reduce our devops costs by 40% whilst also maintaining an SLA of 99.87%.
