Amazon AWS

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.

I was previously using CodeShip CI and configuration is completely done on their web dashboard via GUI which is a downer since if I need to make any changes to my CI infrastructure I need to visit their website and make changes. On the other hand Shippable makes this super easy by letting us keep a Shippable configuration file in root of the project. I use Docker for my deployments and this let's me configure and control the server however I want. Shippable stands between my codebase and server making the deployments look really simple.

JFrog

  • I like the build speed as it is based on Docker and speed saves you time to test and deploy your apps
  • Shippable uses a superset syntax for TravisCI and hence your TravisCI build config will work and you use the extra bits shippable build features
  • Webhooks integration with BitBucket for reporting build status which posted by BitBucket to Slack.

Cons

Amazon AWS

  • Ability to build from more sources.

  • Sometimes builds hang-on at node provisioning step and it generally takes a long time to complete this step.
  • There were intermittent service downtimes.
  • Shippable used to have frequent issues with authentication and used to keep me away from logging in and this happened several times but their support team resolves most of the issues promptly.

    Usability

    Amazon AWS

    Overall, I give AWS Codepipeline a 9 because it gets the job done and I can't complain much about the web interface as much of the action is taking place behind the scenes on the terminal locally or via Amazon's infrastructure anyway. It would be nicer to have a better flowing and visualizable web interface, however.

    Performance

    Amazon AWS

    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.

    Support Rating

    Amazon AWS

    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.

    Alternatives Considered

    Amazon AWS

    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.

    Return on Investment

    Amazon AWS

    • 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.

    • Their customer support is really fast and this will make you feel less vulnerable in case you run in to any service issues
    • Shippable service downtime will obviously will have bad impact on your ROI affecting their reliability
    • With Shippable it's possible to completely eliminate writing custom build and deployment scripts and any maintenance towards that.
