What is CodeDeploy in AWS DevOps?

CodeDeploy is a service that automates the deployment of code to any instance, whether it’s a local server or an Amazon EC2 instance. It mostly aids in managing all of the complexities associated with upgrading programmes for release.

The immediate benefit of CodeDeploy is its capability, which allows customers to quickly release new builds and model features while avoiding any downtime during the deployment process.

AWS CodeDeploy is a deployment service that automates application deployments to Amazon EC2 instances or on-premise infrastructure. CodeDeploy can deploy application content stored in S3, GitHub repository or AWS CodeCommit.
