What is AWS CodePipeline?

AWS CodePipeline is a fully managed continuous delivery service that helps you automate your release pipelines for fast and reliable application and infrastructure updates. CodePipeline automates the build, test, and deploy phases of your release process every time there is a code change, based on the release model you define. This enables you to rapidly and reliably deliver features and updates. You can easily integrate AWS CodePipeline with third-party services such as GitHub or with your own custom plugin. With AWS CodePipeline, you only pay for what you use. There are no upfront fees or long-term commitments.

AWS CodePipeline was previously known as CodePipeline.

Stable, great for those using AWS, and offers okay pricing
Pros and Cons
  • "It's a perfect solution if you are just using AWS."
  • "If you're talking about multi-cloud, you can't use it."

What is our primary use case?

We use CodePipeline for deploying some of the applications that we have for AWS. Ours is a multi-cloud hybrid cloud approach. We have Azure, AWS, Google Cloud, and then we use CI/CD pipelines - our core pipeline tools - from each cloud. For example, on Azure, we use Azure DevOps that integrates with our GitHub on-prem. That's what we use for deploying anything on Azure. The same GitHub. It is also used on Google Cloud. We don't use the native tools from any of the clouds. For example, the CodePipeline from AWS or Deployment Manager from Google Cloud. We try to avoid those. We are moving towards Terraform with a GitHub integration as of our source code repository or pipeline, CI/CD pipeline. No matter what the cloud, we use our on-prem resources. We try to avoid using the cloud.

What is most valuable?

The solution is pretty stable.  It's a perfect solution if you are just using AWS. The pricing is okay.

What needs improvement?

Since we are very price-conscious, we would like the solution to be cheaper. If it was, we would use it more.  CodePipeline is not an option for us at all, as CodePipeline is strictly tied to AWS and we have workloads on Azure and Google. We don't want our workloads to be running from source code that is running in AWS. That's why we prefer on-prem for source code with Terraform and GitHub and then use that to deploy across the cloud. That's our approach.

For how long have I used the solution?

The last time we used the solution was for a project about a year ago.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is pretty stable. Obviously, there are bugs dealing with it, however, it is a pretty good tool. It doesn't give us too many issues. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Whenever we get a requirement for an application deployment in the public cloud, we usually compare if that service is available in all of the three clouds and then we run those pricing estimates to see which is cheaper on which cloud. I work as an enterprise company and we have multiple tabs from all three. Whoever gives us the cheaper credit, that's what we go with - which is cheaper.

What other advice do I have?

I'd give it a ten out of ten. It's the best tool. It's good for AWS, however, if you're talking about multi-cloud, you can't use it.
