Choosing a Well-Architected CI/CD approach: Open-source software and AWS Services

Take a Well-Architected approach to make an informed decision when choosing to implement CI/CD using open-source tools on AWS services, using managed AWS services, or a combination of both.

We will look at key considerations for evaluating open-source software and AWS Services using the perspectives of a startup company, and a mature company, as examples. These will give you two very different points of view that you can use to compare to your own organization. To make this investigation easier we will use Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) capabilities as the target of our investigation.

In our next two blog posts we will follow two AWS customers Iponweb and BigHat Biosciences as they share their CI/CD journeys, their perspective, the decisions they made, and why.

To end the series, we will explore an example reference architecture showing the benefits AWS provides regardless of your emphasis on open source tools or managed AWS services.
