Elastic Beanstalk and CodeDeploy are both very similar deployment products with one major difference: Resource management. AWS CodeDeploy can be classified as a tool in the "Deployment as a Service" category, while Beanstalk is grouped under "Code Collaboration & Version Control".
AWS Elastic Beanstalk
This is an easy-to-use service for deploying and scaling web applications and services developed with Java, .NET, PHP, Node.js, Python, Ruby, Go, and Docker on familiar servers such as Apache, Nginx, Passenger, and IIS.
A developer can use AWS Elastic Beanstalk to launch an application without provisioning the underlying infrastructure and also retaining high availability. Simply upload your app and Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment, from capacity provisioning, load balancing, and auto-scaling to application health monitoring. At the same time, you maintain complete control over the AWS tools that power your application and can access them at any time.
Benefits of AWS Elastic Beanstalk
- Offers Quicker Deployment: Elastic Beanstalk offers developers the fastest and simplest way to deploy their applications. Within minutes, the application will be ready to use without users having to deal with the underlying infrastructure or resource configuration.
- Supports Multi-Tenant Architecture: AWS Elastic Beanstalk makes it possible for users to share their applications across different devices with high scalability and security. It provides a detailed report of application usage and user profiles.
- Simplifies Operations: Beanstalk provisions and operates the infrastructure and manages the application stack. Developers have to just focus on developing code for their applications rather than spending time managing and configuring servers, databases, firewalls, and networks.
- Offers Complete Resource Control: Beanstalk gives developers the freedom to select the AWS resources, like the EC2 instance type, that are optimal for their application. It allows developers to retain full control over AWS resources and access them at any time.
This is a service that automates code deployments to any instance, including Amazon EC2 instances and instances running on-premises. 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. You can use AWS CodeDeploy to automate deployments, eliminating the need for error-prone manual operations, and the service scales with your infrastructure so you can easily deploy to one instance or thousands, as it does not provide resources or provides application-level monitoring.
AWS CodeDeploy is designed for developers and administrators who need to deploy applications to any instance, including Amazon EC2 instances and instances running on-premises. It is flexible and can also be used by anyone wanting to update software or run scripts on their instances.
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.
AWS CodeDeploy is a deployment service that automates application deployments to Amazon EC2 instances, on-premises instances, serverless Lambda functions, or Amazon ECS services. You can deploy a nearly unlimited variety of application content, such as code, serverless AWS Lambda functions, web and configuration files, executables, packages, scripts, multimedia files, and so on. AWS CodeDeploy can deploy application content that runs on a server and is stored in Amazon S3 buckets, GitHub repositories, or Bitbucket repositories. AWS CodeDeploy can also deploy a serverless Lambda function. You do not need to make changes to your existing code before you can use AWS CodeDeploy.
AWS CodeDeploy makes it easier for you to:
- Rapidly release new features.
- Update AWS Lambda function versions.
- Avoid downtime during application deployment
- Handle the complexity of updating your applications, without many of the risks associated with error-prone manual deployments. The service scales with your infrastructure so you can easily deploy to one instance or thousands.
AWS CodePipeline is a fully managed continuous delivery solution that assists you in automating your release pipelines for quick and dependable application and infrastructure changes. Based on the release model you set, CodePipeline automates the build, test, and deploy parts of your release process whenever there is a code change. This enables you to deploy features and updates in a timely and dependable manner. AWS CodePipeline may be easily integrated with third-party services such as GitHub or your own custom plugin. You only pay for what you use with AWS CodePipeline. There are no up-front costs or long-term obligations.
AWS CodeBuild is a fully managed continuous integration service that compiles source code, runs tests, and generates ready-to-deploy software packages. CodeBuild eliminates the need to provision, manage, and grow your own build servers.
AWS is an acronym for Amazon Web Services. CodeBuild is a fully managed continuous integration service that compiles source code, runs tests, and generates deployable software packages. CodeBuild eliminates the need to provision, manage, and grow your own build servers. CodeBuild scales continuously and executes numerous builds at the same time, so your builds are never held up in a queue.
