AWS CodeDeploy vs AWS CodePipeline: What are the differences?
AWS CodeDeploy: 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; 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.
AWS CodeDeploy belongs to "Deployment as a Service" category of the tech stack, while AWS CodePipeline can be primarily classified under "Continuous Deployment".
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, AWS CodePipeline provides the following key features:
- Workflow Modeling
- AWS Integrations
- Pre-Built Plugins

We will use
AWS CloudFormation, as it is ideal for deploying and replicating infrastructure as code.
Amazon CloudWatch Events will be used to send info based on the trigger that initiated the event to developers using
Amazon SNS will also be used in the
AWS CodePipeline after the application has been tested and deployed successfully to the development environment, notifying users to approve the application before it can be deployed to a production environment.
AWS CodeBuild will be used for running tests on the application and
AWS CodeDeploy will be used to deploy the application to Lambda and Alexa Skills Kit.
AWS CodePipeline is a service that will organize the steps taken (building/testing and deployment) when code is pushed to the master branch in our source repository in
