    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.

    It does exactly what it needs to. The only times I've had serious issues with rolling out to a vendor is when they have a "contractual agreement" to only use their solution. Almost every vendor that I've worked with and shown this product to has been skeptical for the first 5 minutes and fully converted to liking the ease of use of the product by 10 minutes

    Pros

    Amazon AWS

    • 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.

    SecureLink

    • Easy to setup on a client PC or server for access
    • Organizes client connections by gatekeeper so it is easy to find what you need
    • File transfer option is great for uploading files to client servers

    Cons

    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.

    • Java based. Always an issue. I know they are working on this and it will be Javaless if we need it. I know that Java can cause issues across the board and I understand the need of it, but it does not make it any better when there are Java issues.
    • Stronger integration with the Active Directory. Currently its only read-only, which is good and bad.
    • I would love to see an App. I know they are working on this as well.

      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 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.

      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.

      Amazon AWS

      - 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 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.

      Securelink seems to work better than LogMein for a large enterprise group. Our company has over 10,000 different connections and securelink manages them well.

      Return on Investment

      Amazon AWS

      • 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.

      SecureLink

      • I've found that Securelink allows me to get a vendor access to an application for support purposes much faster than a provisioned VPN account and the red tape around this. I can set up a vendor to access an application suite in a half hour and it will be more secure than regular provisioning.
      • The ROI is yet to be seen on this, but it certainly makes Compliance, Internal Audit, and Legal very happy, which helps everybody.
      • Internally, there is much more push back and it has been problematic. For a tech, to have to log in to a server and navigate to a system is considered cumbersome, when before all they had to do was open up Putty or RDP to a server to get in. The only way to combat this is to force them to use Securelink by removing rights. Near impossible for the domain admins.
