AWS Elastic Beanstalk

With [AWS] Elastic Beanstalk, you can interact by using the Elastic Beanstalk console, the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), a high-level CLI designed specifically for Elastic Beanstalk. [AWS] Elastic Beanstalk can be deployed quickly and provides a lot of functionality that would otherwise take a longer time to set up and maintain

React

React is great for people who are trying to build complex single page web applications. It is intuitive for developers, encourages modularity through components, and provides a web app this will scale. React may not be suited as well for simple websites or static content. However, this is changing with frameworks like Gatsby which allow you to build static HTML websites using React.

Pros

AWS Elastic Beanstalk

  • AWS Elastic Beanstalk was easy to implement, we only had to insert the application code to have it up and running in a few minutes. This helps us to launch company campaigns for different areas such as marketing, commercial and human resources.
  • It has a fast learning curve, since the training material of the platform is public on the manufacturer's portal, furthermore it is easy to interact and intuitive for developers.
  • The productivity of the equipment is optimized since they are not worrying about preparing the platform or infrastructure, they only have to attend to what is required by the application and its operation and this maintenance.
  • The indicators and metrics that it has, ensure that the application cannot be saturated and have a performance problem, with AWS Elastic Beanstalk the application can scale resources when needed automatically.

React

  • React is designed around the notion of generated html as opposed to templated html. This provides more flexibility in building elements on a page, and allows developers to create html that is programmatically configured based on runtime considerations.
  • React uses JSX, which is HTML templating integrated into javascript code. This simplifies the generation of complex structures, especially those that vary based on runtime and interactive data.
  • React is more efficient because it generates a virtual DOM rather than directly building in in the actual DOM. By building 'offline' in this manner, the DOM generation is faster. After building, it can be installed in one operation.
  • React only builds those portions of the display that have changed, making display updates more efficient.

Cons

AWS Elastic Beanstalk

  • Limited to the frameworks and configurations that AWS supports. There is no native way to use Elastic Beanstalk to deploy a Go application behind Nginx, for example.
  • It's not always clear what's changed on an underlying system when AWS updates an EB stack; the new version is announced, but AWS does not say what specifically changed in the underlying configuration. This can have unintended consequences and result in additional work in order to figure out what changes were made.

React

  • React could get very frustrating unless you start thinking in React. React enforces a top down hierarchy of data flow and offers no way for the data to communicate backwards. This is a big shift in mindset coming from Angular 1.x. This constraint is really a big factor that determines how to organize your code and how you might want to write your own Components.
  • Because of the self imposed top down hierarchy, you end up having a heavy parents with dumb children. Because parents would need to the bulk of the work, they usually manage the state, while passing callbacks to the child components. If not properly designed, this could lead to the callback hell, where you could have callbacks passing through like multiple children.
  • As with any library, you will have to iterate through multiple designs to come up with a ways to avoid "heavy parent components" in React. One obvious solution is using some open source tools like Redux, but we opted for a variation of it to suit our needs.

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.

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.

React is just a bit of a different animal. I was avoiding it for the longest time. I thought for sure I would land on Vue or something else with a more approachable and familiar appearance. But after taking an online course in React, I started realize what people were raving about (and complaining about) and decided to implement it at our office for one of our products.

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.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Elastic Beanstalk

We also use Heroku and it is a great platform for smaller projects and light Node.js services, but we have found that in terms of cost, the Elastic Beanstalk option is more affordable for the projects that we undertake. The fact that it sits inside of the greater AWS Cloud offering also compels us to use it, since integration is simpler.We have also evaluated Microsoft Azure and gave up trying to get an extremely basic implementation up and running after a few days of struggling with its mediocre user interface and constant issues with documentation being outdated. The authentication model is also badly broken and trying to manage resources is a pain. One cannot compare Azure with anything that Amazon has created in the cloud space since Azure really isn't a mature platform and we are always left wanting when we have to interface with it.

React

I have also used Vue, Angular, and Ember for various projects. Out of the three, I am most intrigued by Vue. It takes a more beginner-friendly approach than React and changes some of the abstractions it uses to be more transparent to the user. It also comes with a lot more "built-in" than React. Angular is similar, but I've found it over-engineered and hard to work with. I have the least experience with Ember out of all of these, but it seems like another reasonable alternative with very strong conventions in place and an excellent CLI.

Return on Investment

AWS Elastic Beanstalk

  • till now we had not Calculated ROI as the project is still evolving and we had to keep on changing the environment implementation
  • it meets our purpose of quick deployment as compared to on-premises deployment
  • till now we look good as we also controlled our expenses which increased suddenly in the middle of deployment activity

React

  • React sped up the time to implement new features, providing much better code-reuse across the team
  • React's excellent performance made it so new components ran faster in the browser
  • Since React is so popular, it's been easy to recruit new developers to the team who already have a familiarity with the library
