AWS CodeDeploy: Just like Amazon CodeCommit, which is also a code injection service, AWS CodeDeploy is a fully managed service that is normally used by developers to automate the process of software implementation or deployment.
Software deployment is a sum total of all the processes that software needs to go through before it becomes available for use. Some of the activities under software deployment include installation, configuration, running, testing, and making any necessary changes.
Amazon Web Services CodeDeploy assists developers to actually automate software deployment to other Amazon Web Services Compute services like Amazon EC2 container services, AWS Fargate, AWS Lambda, and even on the servers available at the developer’s side. While the process of software deployment can become quite tiring, boring, tedious and even repetitive, it is critical to the success of any software both in functionality and even revenue generation.
The introduction of the Amazon Web Services CodeDeploy service has greatly simplified the process whilst providing a host of other advantages With AWS CodeDeploy, a developer is able to fast track the process of releasing new features and bug fixes for their application. This really makes the process of updating an application and integrating any new changes a breeze for both the developer and the end-user.
Additionally, AWS CodeDeploy helps reduce or even cancel out all the possible errors or mistakes that would be encountered in the event where the software deployment was to be done manually thus leaving it vulnerable to human mistakes. Finally, as is the case with most if not all Amazon Web services products,
AWS CodeDeploy is highly scalable and can be customized to meet the client’s deployment needs.
With CodeDeploy, the developer does not need to make any changes to the code they have prepared, they just import it as it is.
There are a number of items that you can actually deploy using AWS CodeDeploy. Some of them include but are not limited to code, server less Amazon Web Services Lambda functions, web and configuration files, packages, executable, scripts, and even multimedia files.
