Amazon is launching a set of AWS Developers Tools whose goal is to simplify DevOps so IT professionals can work faster, easier and more efficiently. The main purpose behind these AWS tools is to have the customer or developer be continuously “confident they’ll be able to find a tool for their job”, says Aron Kao, Amazon Web Services’ Senior Manager Product Marketing. So how about you – ready to code, test and deploy automatically with the help of AWS?
The CodeDeploy tool lets you automatically deploy applications and update servers and instances of any size. This means a significantly easier workload for developers and quicker releases of new products and features.
AWS CodePipeline essentially automates the process of releasing a new software and works following the previous models the developer created. CodePipeline automates the phases of compilation, testing and implementation of the launch process each time someone makes an update or modification to the code.
This cloud-based source control service works with Git tools so you can avoid managing and scaling a version control system. Amazon Web Services released this solution to improve software quality and reduce the time it takes to continuously release new updates.
AWS CodeBuild works alongside AWS CodePipeline to provide a simpler method of building and testing code. AWS CodeBuild helps you avoid delays in producing software packages as it continually escalates and processes several compilations at the same time, thus removing them from the waiting queue. Also, there’s no need to set anything up or update as this service is fully-managed from the get go.
You can Blue-Green Deployment in order to create a CI/CD pipeline in under 20 minutes. It works with AWS Elastic Beanstalk, which is useful to deploy and manage apps in the cloud with no support infrastructure limits. This tool even lowers the risk of you accidentally using identical Blue-Green environments.
We recommend using Config to track AWS resource configuration changes and evaluate them against defined rules. It also verify if any change violate the rules. If it happens, AWS Config will mark the resource.
AWS Amplify for Mobile Development Framework
Building mobile backends have never been so easy. The Amplify tool includes UI components, a command line interface and a set of libraries to integrate your backend in any mobile and/or web app.
Currently in developer preview, this AWS Cloud solution can give your team a high-level, oriented framework that helps you define your resources in whatever programming language you’re using. You can also build your AWS infrastructure using AWS Construct Library – a set of modules pre-built by the company.
