    If you need to deploy Docker containers, Amazon Fargate is a very good fit. It integrates very well with other AWS services like RDS, EFS, and Secrets manager. You can have a very robust application using those services. In case you have many containers to deploy, it is however more expensive
    that if you use other services like ECS or EKS, since they allow you to
    share the same infrastructure to deploy multiple containers.

    I have been using AWS Elastic Beanstalk for more than 5 years, and it has made our life so easy and hassle-free. Here are some scenarios where it excels -
    • I have been using different AWS services like EC2, S3, Cloudfront, Serverless, etc. And Elastic Beanstalk makes our lives easier by tieing each service together and making the deployment a smooth process.
    • N number of integrations with different CI/CD pipelines make this most engineer's favourite service.
    • Scalability & Security comes with the service, which makes it the absolute perfect product for your business.
    Personally, I haven't found any situations where it's not appropriate for the use cases it can be used. The pricing is also very cost-effective.

    • Getting a project set up using the console or CLI is easy compared to other [computing] platforms.
    • AWS Elastic Beanstalk supports a variety of programming languages so teams can experiment with different frameworks but still use the same compute platform for rapid prototyping.
    • Common application architectures can be referenced as patterns during project [setup].
    • Multiple environments can be deployed for an application giving more flexibility for experimentation.

    Cons

    Amazon AWS

    No answers on this topic

    Amazon AWS

    • By having it as software as a service, we do not have all the government of the information to which the application codes are uploaded.
    • It requires the intervention of an administrator for its management, even the routine maintenance of the platform is not very automated and requires the intervention of operating personnel.
    • Its ecosystem and integration with third party software is not yet enriched, it is complex to manage if the AWS EB application is required to be integrated with another service in order to operate.

    As our technology grows, it makes more sense to individually provision each server rather than have it done via beanstalk. There are several reasons to do so, which I cannot explain without further diving into the architecture itself, but I can tell you this. With automation, you also loose the flexibility to morph the system for your specific needs. So if you expect that in future you need more customization to your deployment process, then there is a good chance that you might try to do things individually rather than use an automation like beanstalk.

    Usability

    Amazon AWS

    It's a very practical service to use. If you need to deploy any application with a Database, disk storage, you're pretty much set.
    Everything around that can be taken care of using other AWS services. Like secrets manager, certificate manager, RDS ...
    And the CI/CD part is also very easy to setup, you only need on AWS CLI command to trigger a deployment, and done !

    It is a great tool to manage your applications. You just need to write the codes, and after that with one click, your app will be online and accessible from the internet. That is a huge help for people who do not know about infrastructure or do not want to spend money on maintaining infrastructure.

    Support Rating

    Amazon AWS

    AWS provides different support tiers. They are usually very reactive and are able to help solve the issues very quickly.
    As for everything, the higher the support tier you get, the better and faster support you get.
    If you're also a part of big company, you probably have solution architects at your disposal to help you with any inqueries.

    As I described earlier it has been really cost effective and really easy for fellow developers who don't want to waste weeks and weeks into learning and manually deploying stuff which basically takes month to create and go live with the Minimal viable product (MVP). With AWS Beanstalk within a week a developer can go live with the Minimal viable product easily.

    - Do as many experiments as you can before you commit on using beanstalk or other AWS features. - Keep future state in mind. Think through what comes next, and if that is technically possible to do so. - Always factor in cost in terms of scaling. - We learned a valuable lesson when we wanted to go multi-region, because then we realized many things needs to change in code. So if you plan on using this a lot, factor multiple regions.

    AWS Elastic Beanstalk handles better in server autoscaling, load balancers,networking infrastructure for databases. It also helps in creating all of the architecture needed to run our apps and services. [AWS] Elastic Beanstalk also handles all of the provisioning, scaling, and implementation of the application stack unlike other competitors without a fuss.

    Contract Terms and Pricing Model

    Amazon AWS

    Pricing and billing of AWS Fargate is loosely tied to your exisiting AWS billing. You're unlikely to only use Fargate in your AWS subscription, so you get billed for everything alltoghter.
    Fargate is naturally a bit more expensive that usuel docker services, but with careful planning and architecturing, you can have a very manageable cost.
    You can also rely on Saving plans to reduce your bill.

    • Elastic Beanstalk removes countless hours from development team responsibility, freeing up those resources to instead focus on building the products that our customers want to use.
    • As a business that is already embedded into using EC2 instances, it's essentially free to leverage the work that AWS performs on configuring the Elastic Beanstalk stacks.
    • With Elastic Beanstalk, while there is still a responsibility to ensure that applications can work with updated underlying dependencies, it's much easier when AWS handled the heavy lifting of updating the stacks.
