What is AWS CodeDeploy?

AWS CodeDeploy is a fully managed deployment service that automates software deployments to compute services like Amazon EC2 instances, AWS Lambda functions, or other instances running on-premises. It facilitates easy, rapid, and reliable deployments of applications across different environments.

How CodeDeploy works?

  1. Deployment Configuration: define deployment configuration, specifying details like type, compute platform, deployment group, and basic environment settings.

  2. Application Revision: review of application, which includes the application files, code, configurations, scripts, and any other necessary assets.

  3. Deployment Group: is a set of individual instances or Lambda functions that serve a common purpose and can receive a deployment at the same time. This group can be based on tags, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling groups, or both.

  4. Deployment: start a deployment in CodeDeploy, specifying the application revision and the deployment group. CodeDeploy then automatically deploys the application to the instances or AWS Lambda functions in the deployment group according to the specified configuration.

  5. Deployment Hooks: CodeDeploy allows you to specify deployment hooks, which are scripts or functions that run at different stages of the deployment process. This enables you to customize and control the deployment process as needed.

  6. Monitoring and Rollback: During the deployment, CodeDeploy monitors the health of the instances or Lambda functions and can automatically roll back the deployment if any issues are detected, ensuring minimal downtime and maintaining the stability of application.

Basic features of AWS CodeDeploy

  1. Automation: AWS CodeDeploy automates the deployment process, reducing the need for manual intervention and minimizing the risk of human error. It allows you to define your deployment configuration once and then deploy your application consistently across different environments and machines, saving time and effort.

  2. Flexibility: CodeDeploy supports a variety of deployment scenarios, including deploying applications to Amazon EC2 instances, AWS Lambda functions, and on-premises servers. This flexibility enables you to use the same deployment tool for different types of applications and environments, simplifying your deployment process.

  3. Scaling: With CodeDeploy, you can easily scale your deployments to handle increased traffic or workload. It integrates seamlessly with other AWS services like Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling, allowing you to automatically deploy new instances and distribute traffic as needed.

  4. Rollback: CodeDeploy monitors the health of your deployment and can automatically roll back to a previous version if any issues are detected.

  5. Cost-effectiveness: AWS CodeDeploy is a managed service, which means AWS handles the infrastructure and maintenance, reducing the operational overhead for your deployment process. You only pay for the resources you use, making it a cost-effective solution for deploying applications.

Is AWS CodeDeploy Free?

No. It's paid service. But AWS sometimes offers a free tier for new customers, allowing you to explore and experiment with CodeDeploy at no cost within certain usage limits.

How much cost AWS CodeDeploy service?

The cost of using AWS CodeDeploy depends on several factors, including the number of deployments, the regions in which you deploy, the amount of data transferred during deployments, and any additional AWS services you use in conjunction with CodeDeploy (such as Amazon EC2 instances or AWS Lambda functions). Here's a breakdown of some key CodeDeploy cost components:

  1. Deployment Pricing: AWS CodeDeploy charges based on the number of deployments you perform. The pricing structure typically involves a per-deployment fee, which may vary based on factors like deployment type (e.g., EC2, Lambda)

  2. Data Transfer: If you transfer data during deployments (e.g., uploading application revisions), you may incur data transfer fees. These fees vary based on the amount of data transferred and the AWS region.

  3. Compute Resources: If you deploy to Amazon EC2 instances or AWS Lambda functions, you'll incur costs for the compute resources used during deployments. This includes fees for EC2 instances, Lambda function invocations, and related services like Amazon S3 for storing application revisions.

  4. Additional Services: Depending on your specific use case.

It's essential to review the AWS CodeDeploy pricing details on the AWS website or consult the AWS Pricing Calculator for specific pricing information based on your deployment requirements, and usage patterns.
