AWS DevOps Vs. Azure DevOps

What is DevOps?

DevOps is a set of software development practices that combines development (Dev) and operations (Ops) to shorten the SDLC while delivering feature fixes and updates frequently in close alignment with business objectives.

Here we are discussing AWS DevOps Vs. Azure DevOps.

What is AWS?

AWS which stands for Amazon web services is an “” subsidiary that offers cloud computing services like:

  • Computer Power
  • Database Storage
  • Content Delivery

AWS DevOps Tools

  • AWS CodePipeline: It’s a continuous integration and continuous delivery service for fast and reliable application and infrastructure updates. CodePipeline builds, tests, and deploys the code whenever code changes based on the release process model defined by the user. So, CodePipeline enables users to rapidly and reliably deliver features and updates.
  • AWS CodeDeploy: As its name shows, AWS CodeDeploy automates code deployments to any instance, including Amazon EC2 instances and on-premises servers. AWS CodeDeploy makes it easy for users to release new features rapidly and helps to avoid downtime during application deployment. It handles the complexity of updating the application.
  • AWS CodeBuild: It’s a fully managed build service that can compile source codes, run tests, and produce software packages that are ready to deploy. With CodeBuild, the user doesn’t need to provision, manage and scale their build service. CodeBuild scales continuously and processes multiple builds concurrently.
  • AWS CodeStar: It enables users to quickly develop, build and deploy applications on Amazon web services. It provides a unified user interface enabling users to manage development activities in one place easily.

What is Azure?

Microsoft Azure is commonly referred to as Azure. Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform created by Microsoft for building, testing, deploying, and managing applications and services through Microsoft-managed data centers.

Azure DevOps Tools

  • Pipelines: Azure Pipeline allows its users to build, test and deploy their applications in any language, any platform on any cloud such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud platform, Raspberry pie, etc. It also allows enterprises to deploy their systems with containerization platforms such as Kubernetes.
  • Azure Boards: It allows tracking work with configurable boards, interactive backlogs, and powerful planning tools. It allows for tracking ideas in every development stage.
  • Azure Artifacts: This feature allows sharing packages from public and private sources with the entire team. It helps integrate packages with CI/CD pipeline in the most efficient, simple, and scalable way.
  • The Azure Repos: Azure repositories provide flexible, powerful Git hosting with unlimited free repositories. It helps to connect with any integrated development environment, Git client, or editor. It also supports webhook and application programming interface integration.
  • Azure Test Plans: It provides a wide variety of manual and exploratory testing tools. The user can test their desktop or web application. It also captures data during test execution.
