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 will highly recommend this software because using Splunk
Cloud has helped us become more proactive about handling our security concerns and better manage our environment.

Splunk Cloud allows me to create Dashboards for everyday monitoring of multiple parameters. Splunk Cloud allows me to create and schedule reports for Management on network usage and statistics. Read full review Cons Ease of use - things like CircleCI or other tools are a bit easier to learn. Ability to build from more sources. Read full review Splunk Cloud support is increasing a lot now a days and I see no cons other than the price factor to the other compared products. Overall Splunk Cloud is a very good product all together. I can see that Splunk Cloud can still improve in the form of SLA. Splunk Cloud generally lags behind the available splunk upgrades. They are always one version behind the one available for enterprise. Read full review Usability
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.

Overall, it is very usable. I would like if recent searches were saved for longer because I always have to refer to my notes when I'm looking for something specific and it's been a few weeks. But that's a small issue, and the actual search and browsing interface is easy to use and powerful.

Our pipeline takes about 30 minutes to run through. Although this time depends on the applications you are using on either end, I feel that it is a reasonable time to make upgrades and updates to our system as it is not an every day push.

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.

Splunk Cloud support is sorely lacking unfortunately. The portal where you submit tickets is not very good and is lacking polish. Tickets are left for days without any updates and when chased it is only sometimes you get a reply back. I get the feeling the support team are very understaffed and have far too much going on. From what I know, Splunk is aware of this and seem to be trying to remedy it.

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

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

Splunk Cloud blows
out of the water. The experience is night and day. We went from several highly stressed IT security professionals who were unsure if the data they were getting was valuable, to very happy IT security professionals who can now be more proactive and get all the information they need.
Read full review Return on Investment 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. Read full review The biggest return on investment is how quickly logs are now consumed, and how quickly we can follow events that occur in logs. The number of logs that can be consumed by Splunk is much higher than previous solutions. We have much better visibility into our logs, and are able to spot patterns in events with the built-in graphs and reports. Read full review ScreenShots
