AWS continuous integration

What is AWS continuous integration?

AWS continuous integration is continuous integration as applied to applications developed and deployed on Amazon Web Services infrastructure. What is continuous integration? Continuous integration is the practice of very frequently building and testing an application to ensure that the latest code check-ins haven't caused any defects, and then promptly fixing any defects that are found. To facilitate AWS continuous integration, Amazon provides an AWS CodePipeline service that orchestrates the entire integration and delivery pipeline from code check-in all the way through to production, invoking either AWS solutions or third party solutions for key services such as source control, application build, testing, and deployment.

Automatic Monitoring of your critical AWS resources and consumed services allows you to optimize your cloud deployments.

AWS continuous integration: Delivering code fast while keeping up quality

AWS CodePipeline, by smoothly orchestrating your use of standard CI tools such as build servers and automated testing frameworks, helps your DevOps teams push code through to production at a fast clip. But there remains the challenge of pushing out code that will actually perform well for your users once it goes live on AWS. This is where Dynatrace can take your AWS continuous integration implementation to the next level. Dynatrace integrates with each phase of the code development, integration, testing, and delivery pipeline to monitor and analyze the performance attributes of your application, detect performance regressions or scalability bottlenecks, and help your team rapidly troubleshoot and resolve performance issues across your entire application and infrastructure stack.

Automatic Connection Analysis to better understand communication and deployment bottlenecks between critical services.
