"AWS CodeDeploy ! ! "

What do you like best?

i have been working with AWS code deploy for 1-2 years , the most amazing thing about AWs Code Deploy is that it is very easy to integrate AWS Code Deploy with other services , it is very convenient to configure applications , it also has a feture of rolling updates which saves our deployed application from entering into the inconsistence state which is very hard to recover back , we can also able to directly connect it with github very easily and rapidly , in case if your server faces any down time situation the AWS Code Deploy can able to minimize thre total downtime approx by half which is very impressive and practical mechanism used by AWS Code Deploy ! !

What do you dislike?

the user interface is not so attractive and easy to use , and pricing cost are little bit higher comparatively ! !

Recommendations to others considering the product

AWS Code Deploy is one of the widely used and easy to integrate setup , which is not so price effective but still it benifits you in so many situation !

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Powerful tool of automated deployments!"

What do you like best?

The best thing about AWS CodeDeploy is that it is a powerful tool that automates code implementations and performs large deployments in any instance, which allows me to avoid having my applications downtime during its implementation, it is also very easy to use and its costs are very low since we only pay for what we use.

What do you dislike?

It has limitations such as that it can only be implemented in EC2 instances but I think it will take a short time for it to open its doors to other instances.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When configuring this tool, one must be careful to avoid errors since a good configuration makes a good development of them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool is very useful for my work because it allows me to make implementations and deployments of my applications more manageable which saves me a lot of time and also the fact that implements automation makes it easily administrable.

What Continuous Deployment solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Easy to setup , manage and use continous deployment"

What do you like best?

It is very simple to use and is free for experimentation for those who want to get hang of deployment pipelines without investing too much money. I used codeDeploy with bitbucket and the bitbucket codeDeploy plugin was very easy to setup. The deployment configuration and groups are nice features.

You can control all the steps that happen when the deployment is happening. You can provision important updates, configure your VM's before installed an updated patch of your software.

What do you dislike?

There are a lot of steps involved in the setup and sometimes its difficult to keep track of all the details, if you are following the aws documentation (which, by the way, are very extensive and detailed).

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can get this setup and running free of cost, following the AWS documentaiton as well. Just make sure to remove the auto-scaling group and add an ec2 instance in your deployment group manually. Happy Deploying!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Continuous deployment and delivery. Version upgrades.

Benefits:

Setup once and deliver continuously. It is also very easy to explain once you have setup this up and can be easily propagated within the team.

"Really easy deployments"

What do you like best?

It is so simple to start with that product both using windows and linux endpoints. I use as a last step of our continuous integration solution. It makes so easy to give feedback through the CLI.

What do you dislike?

I am missing an option for partial deployments. There are different behaviours for shipping code to instances, but one scenario our team handles is the option of working with different versions of code simultaneously. To be able to test that scenario we tweak ec2 tags to deploy to some of the machines. However is a workaround tweaking codeDeploy behaviour.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think codeDeploy does well what is meant for, however it is no more than a deployment solution. Trying to use for any other purpose could be a bad idea. If you require orchestration, you better use an orchestration solution, which are not incompatible.

CodeDeploy doesn't have a very friendly procedure to push deployments, so you better automate that process, unless you will spend a lot of time defining deployment groups and releases unnecessarily in the UI.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use different kind of deployments according to the applications change log. If those releases don't have a major impact we use codedeploy. We run green/blue deployments otherwise.

For integration and staging, we always use code Deploy from the continuous integration service.

"Good solution to streamline your deploys"

What do you like best?

I especially like the fact that CodeDeploy can be integrated with GitHub, so new code can be instantly and automatically deployed to our servers. appspec.yml (CodeDeploy's config file) also allows to hook your own scripts, making for a very flexible solution.

What do you dislike?

The integration with ELB/autoscaling could be somewhat better; failed deploys can sometimes lead to a loop where EC2 instances keep on being started/stopped, and there's no way to avoid it saved for manual intervention.

On top of that, I'd love to be able to do automatical rollbacks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd use CodeDeploy again if I had to deploy apps to a load balancing, distributed environment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CodeDeploy allows us to deploy distributed apps to our autoscaling/load balancing system on EC2 without having to write custom scripts and having to allow devs to directly access the instances.

"Automate the process of deploying and updating applications on Amazon EC2."

What do you like best?

1- automatically deploy to new EC2 instances that are spun up by Autoscaling.

2- Minimize downtime.

3- launch and track the status of your deployments through the AWS CodeDeploy console or the AWS CLI.

4- platform-agnostic and works with any application. You can easily reuse your setup code. AWS CodeDeploy can also integrate with your software release process or continuous delivery toolchain.

What do you dislike?

1- AWS CodeDeploy only supports deployments on EC2 instances at this time.

2- AWS CodeDeploy requires an agent to be installed on any EC2 instance that it will be deploying code to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It has a nice feature set, can be easily integrated into most environments and code bases, and is based on rock-solid, proven technology. And the price is right

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

automate code deployment and eliminate manual operations.

"A strong tool when you have an army of machines to manage"

What do you like best?

This really is a tool for ops automation at the larger scales. Every resource is versioned and labels / notification of changes can be attached to AWS natively, or externally via hooks. There are some finer-grained controls for rolling deploys, and being able to programmatically enable deployment groups — this was a big deal for us, in planning to roll-out in high use environments. It was a lynchpin to doing staged CD via CodePipeline.

What do you dislike?

This tool is rather dependent on CodePipeline and other AWS systems, so you're paying to integrate with it all, or using something else. As such, the docs and all related discussion about one gets confounded with the other. This is a pain when Onboarding new people. Since there is no strong UI (being a programmatic tool) visualizations of the overall system could be better — or you'll self-support. Many times, we are looking at other tools to best-see the state of the overall systems (like NewRelic or Ruxit, etc)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Remember that this really works in conjunction with other tools, and less standalone.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used this tool in several cases. One is to deploy a platform (several, multi-application suites, with interdependencies) that has 5 environments for each app. Deployment was a bookworm nightmare prior to a deployment management system.

The other main case is where we operated a system that was high-load, and he resource version at each stage of routing was very important in debugging cache dynamics.

"Good automation deployment tool."

What do you like best?

It makes all the deployment and continuous integration part quite easy to manage. Once the pull request to the GIT repository is made and merged, it automatically deploys the code to multiple server and performs different actions. Another good part is that you integrate with GIThub.

What do you dislike?

Amazon services are not for free is the only drawback I could think of.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If money is not the concern that i'd highly recommend it to people who have a lot of after deployment process to take care of. This tool makes it more manageable.

"Easy Code deploying"

What do you like best?

You can launch and track the status of your deployments through the AWS CodeDeploy console or the AWS CLI. It gives report on every revision and the date when it was deployed. Very handy to keep track of all the updates in your application. You can even stop the deployments if you find any mistake on the go.

What do you dislike?

It was a bit confusing and hard to start with. Had to read a lot about how to use it. A setup guide from the amazon would be nice.

"A Useful Building Block"

What do you like best?

It is straightforward by itself, but also composes nicely with many other systems. It can be used to package up binaries, static assets, or scripts and then deploying them to a cluster of EC2 instances. I have even used it as the deploy mechanism for an internal PaaS to deploy scripts that then manage and run docker containers.

What do you dislike?

It has relatively few options for timing deploying code through a cluster. The default is to deploy to each instance in serial. You can tell it to deploy all at once or some groups, but the options are limited. And there is no way to say "only deploy to X% of my instances" for testing a deployment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automate deploying code to instances to support continuous integration and continuous deployment goals.

"good for in-place deployments"

What do you like best?

it is very simple to use. the code-deploy agent is installed on the instance, and deployments can occur automagically. also, the agent can be installed on non-aws servers, as long as they can connect to the codedeploy endpoint

What do you dislike?

code-deploy is an "in-place" deployment mechanism, so it is at odds with the immutable infrastructure methodology

Recommendations to others considering the product

i prefer green/blue immutable deployments, as opposed to "in-place" deployments

"Automated Deployments"

What do you like best?

Code deployment is one hectic job, sometimes even after the project is ready it takes few days to go live because of deployment issues. This problem is quite nicely tackled by this tool. Code deployments and automations are made quite easy.

What do you dislike?

AWS has a lot of other services to provide but I find this particular one a little more expensive than what it should have been. Apart from this one might take some time to get used to it as flow isn't very intuitive to somebody who's new at code deployments.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Overall it's a good tool for saving a lot of time and opportunity cost when code deployment is considered. Automation is something which can be easily managed using this tool.

"Automating code deployment"

What do you like best?

Best part is the integration of github with this tool and making the whole process automated from making a pull request to deployment and running scripts instead of manually creating webhooks from github and writing scripts.

What do you dislike?

Amazon web services come at a price, they aren't for free. On the contrary setting up webhooks on github is free of cost.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Daily code deployment and running different scripts for different kind of code is one hectic job. One dedicated person is supposed to be assigned for the job but not in the case when you can automate the whole process. Codedeploy facilitates that in a very good fashion.

"Nice tool for code deploying."

What do you like best?

Best thing about the tool is automation. Every time code is pushed to the repository you can perform actions on it. You don't have to go on each server and deploy the code or run scripts manually. Pretty much everything is handled by CodeDeploy.

What do you dislike?

Though Amazon services are relatively cheap i'd still prefer this service to be free of cost. Because this is something which can be done by writing scripts. Only the managing part is well handled.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're a small company and wanna cut a lot of time on code deployment then this is a must have SAS application.
