Amazon Web Services Developer Tools

August 14, 2019

Amazon Web Services (AWS) Developer Tools help developers and DevOps professionals deliver software faster and easier. With AWS Developer Tools, you can store source code and apply version control to your application’s source code. You can also build, test and deploy your application to AWS or your own environment.

As an AWS Select Partner, we use a range of AWS Developer Tools to deliver exceptional solutions to our clients. We can thoroughly recommend the following:


AWS CodeCommit hosts secure Git-based repositories. It’s a fully-managed source control service and you can use it to store anything from source code to binaries. It’s scalable, works with other existing Git tools and makes it easy to collaborate with others on code.


CodeBuild allows you to process multiple builds concurrently so that none are left waiting in a queue. It compiles source code, runs tests and creates software packages that you can deploy instantly. The fully managed build service comes with pre-packaged build environments or you can create your own using your own build tools.


CodeDeploy will help you avoid downtime and move faster by automating code deployments. It automates a variety of deployments to any instance including EC2 and those running on premises. By automating deployments, you can avoid error-prone manual operations and quickly release new features.


CodePipeline tidies up your release pipelines and displays them all in one dashboard. It automates building, testing and deploying releases every time there’s a code change or update, based on the rules that you define. This means you can deliver on feature updates quickly and dependably. It integrates with GitHub or even your own custom plugin and there are no upfront fees or long-term contracts. It’s pay as you go, so you only pay for what you use.

Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS)

Amazon ECS helps you run and scale containerised applications on AWS. It supports Docker containers and eliminates the need to install and operate your own container orchestration software. It’s scalable and allows you to grow virtual machines or schedule containers on them.


AWS X-Ray helps developers troubleshoot for performance issues and glitches. It gives an overview of how your applications are performing and the root cause of errors. It shows a map of your application’s underlying components and can analyse applications in both development and in production.

Amazon Relational Database Service

Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) is a cloud-based relational database management tool. It eliminates time-consuming administration tasks, making it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database.

Elastic Load Balancing

Elastic Load Balancing automatically allocates incoming application traffic to make your applications highly available and fault tolerant. It works across multiple targets, including Amazon EC2 instances, containers, IP addresses, and Lambda functions. It offers three types of load balancers and can handle the varying application traffic in a single Availability Zone or across multiple Availability Zones.
