|Amazon Web Services Announces New Application Lifecycle Management Services|
AWS CodeDeploy lets developers simply and reliably automate code deployments and updates for any application running on Amazon EC2; available today
AWS CodePipeline, a continuous delivery and release automation service, and AWS CodeCommit, a source control service, to be available in early 2015
AWS CodeDeploy is the first of a new set of services AWS will release to help developers manage their application development lifecycle on the AWS Cloud. In early 2015, AWS will introduce AWS CodePipeline, an automated continuous delivery service to aid smooth deployments, and AWS CodeCommit, a fully managed source control service in the cloud.

As cloud becomes the new default platform for deploying applications, customers are increasingly finding their existing tools and processes for building, testing, and deploying code are ill-suited to the scale and speed of development in the cloud. When deployment happens frequently, and code must be pushed to hundreds or thousands of instances in a live environment, relying on custom scripts and manual workflows can result in significant delays and application downtime. AWS CodeDeploy, AWS CodePipeline, and AWS CodeCommit are built for the cloud, making it easier for developers to simplify the process of building, testing, and deploying their applications. Developers will no longer need to worry about hosting or maintaining their own source code infrastructure, and can now model and automate their software release and deployment processes on the AWS Cloud.
“In the same way AWS was born out of Amazon’s internal expertise
managing large-scale infrastructure, AWS CodeDeploy was born out of the
experiences of Amazon’s own developers, who saw the need for deployment
tools that would let them deliver new functionality quickly, reliably,
and at high scale so that they could maximize their time spent
AWS CodeDeploy can perform rolling updates to keep applications available while they are being updated. It integrates with AWS Auto Scaling to keep a developer’s Amazon EC2 instances up-to-date in dynamically changing infrastructure. With deployment health checks and the ability to roll back a deployment, AWS CodeDeploy makes it easier than ever to deploy applications to Amazon EC2. AWS CodeDeploy can also easily work with a developer’s existing software delivery tool chain by using the AWS CodeDeploy APIs. Leading developer tools like GitHub, CircleCI, Atlassian, Codeship, Solano CI, Travis CI, and CloudBees are providing integrations with AWS CodeDeploy that make it simple to automatically deploy developers’ latest application builds to their Amazon EC2 instances.
