AWS CodePipeline vs Azure Container Service: 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 Azure Container Service? Deploy and manage containers using the tools you choose. Azure Container Service optimizes the configuration of popular open source tools and technologies specifically for Azure. You get an open solution that offers portability for both your containers and your application configuration. You select the size, the number of hosts, and choice of orchestrator tools, and Container Service handles everything else.

AWS CodePipeline belongs to "Continuous Deployment" category of the tech stack, while Azure Container Service can be primarily classified under "Containers as a Service".

Some of the features offered by AWS CodePipeline are:

  • Workflow Modeling
  • AWS Integrations
  • Pre-Built Plugins

On the other hand, Azure Container Service provides the following key features:

  • Create a container hosting solution optimized for Azure
  • Scale and orchestrate applications using Apache Mesos or Docker Swarm
  • Use popular open source, client-side tooling
