AWS CodeBuild vs TeamCity: What are the differences?

Developers describe AWS CodeBuild as "Build and test code with continuous scaling". AWS CodeBuild is a fully managed build service that compiles source code, runs tests, and produces software packages that are ready to deploy. With CodeBuild, you don’t need to provision, manage, and scale your own build servers. On the other hand, TeamCity is detailed as "TeamCity is an ultimate Continuous Integration tool for professionals". TeamCity is a user-friendly continuous integration (CI) server for professional developers, build engineers, and DevOps. It is trivial to setup and absolutely free for small teams and open source projects.

AWS CodeBuild and TeamCity can be primarily classified as "Continuous Integration" tools.

Some of the features offered by AWS CodeBuild are:

  • Fully Managed Build Service
  • Continuous Scaling
  • Enables Continuous Integration

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

  • Automate code analyzing, compiling, and testing processes, with having instant feedback on build progress, problems, and test failures, all in a simple, intuitive web-interface
  • Simplified setup: create projects from just a VCS repository URL
  • Run multiple builds and tests under different configurations and platforms simultaneously

"Pay per minute" is the top reason why over 4 developers like AWS CodeBuild, while over 52 developers mention "Easy to configure" as the leading cause for choosing TeamCity.

According to the StackShare community, TeamCity has a broader approval, being mentioned in 171 company stacks & 51 developers stacks; compared to AWS CodeBuild, which is listed in 21 company stacks and 14 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to AWS CodeBuild and TeamCity?
Jenkins
In a nutshell Jenkins CI is the leading open-source continuous integration server. Built with Java, it provides over 300 plugins to support building and testing virtually any project.
AWS CodePipeline
CodePipeline builds, tests, and deploys your code every time there is a code change, based on the release process models you define.
Apache Maven
Maven allows a project to build using its project object model (POM) and a set of plugins that are shared by all projects using Maven, providing a uniform build system. Once you familiarize yourself with how one Maven project builds you automatically know how all Maven projects build saving you immense amounts of time when trying to navigate many projects.
GitLab CI
GitLab offers a continuous integration service. If you add a .gitlab-ci.yml file to the root directory of your repository, and configure your GitLab project to use a Runner, then each merge request or push triggers your CI pipeline.
AWS CodeDeploy
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.
