Now, AWS CodeBuild supports Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) resources. The new capability allows CodeBuild to access VPC resources without being exposed to the public internet. This enables you to use CodeBuild to compile your software code within your VPC and access resources including Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), Amazon ElastiCache, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon EC2 Container Service (Amazon ECS), as well as any service endpoints that are only reachable from within a specific VPC.

Now, you can cache your build dependencies in AWS CodeBuild. This new capability allows you to be more efficient while running frequent software builds. A typical application build process includes various phases, such as preparing environment, updating configuration, downloading dependencies, running unit tests, and packaging the built artifact. In most cases dependent files do not change frequently between builds allowing you to reduce your build time by caching dependencies with CodeBuild. To learn more, visit our blog here.
