AWS CodePipeline

I think AWS CodePipeline is a great tool for anyone wanted automated deployments in a multi-server/container AWS environment. AWS also offers services like Elastic Beanstalk that provide a more managed hosting & deployment experience. CodePipeline is a good middle ground with solid, built-in automation with enough customizability to not lock people into one deployment or architecture philosophy.

Bitbucket

In the Caribbean - with limited resources, it is nice to know a company will be there in assisting you to grow. They will start you off with a very good free tier and you can scale easier on a predictable budget. Bitbucket works especially when you are using Atlassian's toolset. If you aren't married to the company - then you can explore others like GitHub which offers comparable features without much compromise.

Bitbucket

  • Very easy to integrate with other DevOps tools like Jenkins and with project/workflow management tools like JIRA.
  • Very efficient in managing security and compliance standards for code, especially during pull requests, merge requests, branching, etc.
  • Very robust in performance, especially the cloud and datacenter versions hardly hit any performance issues and supports more than 2000+ developers in my company.

Cons

AWS CodePipeline

  • Ease of use - things like CircleCI or other tools are a bit easier to learn.
  • Ability to build from more sources.
Richard Rout | TrustRadius Reviewer

Bitbucket

  • The code management UI is a bit rough around the edges and difficult to work with.
  • BitBucket does not have the same simplified PR management tools as other competitors.
  • It's not as easy to integrate 3rd party apps as other competitors.

There isn't another similar product that I would be able to find that would meet all of these needs without me implementing my own self-hosted service locally on premises that was accessible to off-site team members. For the cost, this is one of the services that you just can't find a way to get rid of. It's incredibly affordable and incredibly beneficial.

Usability

AWS CodePipeline is very useable because of its Infrastructure as Code (IaC) capabilities. Since changes to the pipelines can be version controlled, minor changes in the pipelines can be pin-pointed to causing specific issues and fix or rolled back easily as needed. More CI/CD solutions need to completely support IaC. However, Github support is weak within the product.

The architecture of Bitbucket makes it more easily scalable than other source code management repositories. Also, administration and maintaining the instance is very easy. It integrates with JIRA and other CI/CD applications which makes it more useful to reduce the efforts. It supports multiple plugins and those bring a lot of extra functionality. It increases the overall efficiency and usefulness of Bitbucket.

AWS CodePipeline only speeds the delivery of code, it does not slow down any other used software and integrates perfectly with other tools. Although it is a web-based tool, it has great performance and compatibility. Besides that, it is greatly enhanced by the other tools of AWS. It is not only limited to AWS tools but can be used with other tools such as GitHub, Jenkins, etc.

We didn't need a lot of support with AWS CodePipeline as it was pretty straightforward to configure and use, but where we ran into problems, the AWS community was able to help. AWS support agents were also helpful in resolving some of the minor issues we encountered, which we could not find a solution elsewhere.

The customer support provided by Atlassian (Bitbucket's parent company that also makes Jira, Confluence, etc.) is very helpful. They seem to be very concerned about any issues reported with their products and even just questions about functionality. They are constantly improving the products with new features in nearly every release. Plus they have a plethora of online documentation to reference.

Alternatives Considered

AWS CodePipeline

CodeCommit and CodeDeploy can be used with CodePipeline so it’s not really fair to stack them against each other as they can be quite the compliment. The same goes for Beanstalk, which is often used as a deployment target in relation to CodePipeline.

CodePipeline fulfills the CI/CD duty, where the other services do not focus on that specific function. They are supplements, not replacements. CodePipeline will detect the updated code and handle deploying it to the actual instance via Beanstalk.

Jenkins is open source and not a native AWS service, that is its primary differentiator. Jenkins can also be used as a supplement to CodePipeline.

Bitbucket

For the features we were looking at, Bitbucket, GitHub and GitLab were all at par and were in a similar price range. We found that GitHub was the most full featured should we need to scale very quickly. GitLab was at par with GitHub for our future needs, but GitHub was a more familiar tool compared to GitLab. Bitbucket won out because of its close integration with Jira and being in the Atlassian family. It was also cheaper than GitHub. As we started with Jira, Bitbucket addition became a natural next step for us. We really liked Bitbucket and stayed with it but we do know we have great options in the form of GitHub and GitLab should we need to scale fast.

Return on Investment

AWS CodePipeline

  • CodePipeline has reduced ongoing devops costs for my clients, especially around deployment & testing.
  • CodePipeline has sped up development workflow by making the deployment process automated off git pushes. Deployment takes very little coordination as the system will just trigger based on what is the latest commit in a branch.
  • CodePipeline offered a lot of out-of-the-box functionality that was much simpler to setup than a dedicated CI server. It allowed the deployment process to built and put into production with much less and effort and cost compared to rolling the functionality manually.

Bitbucket

  • It's allowed for a lot of automation in terms of development workflows. It lets us pursue CI/CD approaches and get releases out faster
  • It has let us get our infrastructure configuration into VCS, which further improves our automation abilities.
  • It has aided in keeping track of changes, and allows us to keep workflows organized so we can track the status of development
