AWS CodeDeploy now supports using Application Load Balancers for both blue/green and in-place deployments. With this update, you can choose between a Classic Load Balancer and an Application Load Balancer for your deployment groups. For blue/green deployments, CodeDeploy re-routes the traffic from instances in the original environment to those in the replacement environment. For in-place deployments, using a load balancer with CodeDeploy increases the fault tolerance of your application as it prevents traffic from being routed to instances that are currently being deployed to.
