AWS CodeDeploy vs Octopus Deploy: What are the differences?

Developers describe AWS CodeDeploy as "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. On the other hand, Octopus Deploy is detailed as "Automated deployment for .NET". Octopus works with your build server to enable reliable, secure, automated releases of ASP.NET applications and Windows Services into test, staging and production environments, whether they are in the cloud or on-premises.

AWS CodeDeploy and Octopus Deploy can be primarily classified as "Deployment as a Service" tools.

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, Octopus Deploy provides the following key features:

  • Deploy on-premises or to the cloud, securely
  • Built for .NET developers
  • Configuration and scripting

"Automates code deployments" is the primary reason why developers consider AWS CodeDeploy over the competitors, whereas "Powerful" was stated as the key factor in picking Octopus Deploy.

Adsia, Algorithmia, and indico are some of the popular companies that use AWS CodeDeploy, whereas Octopus Deploy is used by Starbucks, AX Semantics, and Olo. AWS CodeDeploy has a broader approval, being mentioned in 57 company stacks & 14 developers stacks; compared to Octopus Deploy, which is listed in 45 company stacks and 15 developer stacks.
