AWS Elastic Beanstalk is the platform-as-a-service offering provided by Amazon and designed to leverage AWS services such as Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).
AWS Elastic Beanstalk is designed for deploying and scaling web applications and services developed with Java, .NET, PHP, Node.js, Python, Ruby, Go, and Docker on familiar servers such as Apache, Nginx, Passenger, and IIS.
Developers can simply upload their code and Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment, from capacity provisioning, load balancing, and auto-scaling to application health monitoring. At the same time, users retain full control over the AWS resources powering their application and can access the underlying resources at any time.
There is no additional charge for Elastic Beanstalk - pay only for the AWS resources needed to store and run applications.
- It allows us to run our own custom API without the overhead of an operating system.
- We can upload our code to a GIT repository and then transition it to Beanstalk very quickly.
- It helped in improving the customer relations.
- Compliance and Risk management were improved.
- Helped in making the process more efficient.
- AWS Elastic Beanstalk allows for quick iteration on application code with built in deployment mechanisms.
- Configuration can be difficult to manage in complex applications, specifically in applications with multiple environments.
- Return on Investment increased tremendously
- Easy and agile deployment, by having only the application team occupied during this brief moment, the operating costs reduce in a positive way
- The scalability of the platform has helped us to make the infrastructure layer invisible, considering the fractional consumption of AWS, only the resources used are being billed.
- For the business, it has helped to increase the productivity of the personnel since it was possible to optimize the operation and traditional management tasks towards a cloud-based environment such as AWS.
- We have saved $300-500 last year with the use of it.
- Now we can live our applications with less cloud infra engineers required.
- Reduced time from development to deployment by 30% over typical deployments to EC2 instances
- Reduced performance tuning time by 50% over classic auto-scaling group configuration and EC2 instances
- Reduced time to configure security for an application by 15% over classic VPC, IG and Security Group configuration times
- It's a good investment.
- It saves our company's budget by cutting down the cost of maintaining infrastructure cost.
- It expedites our developing cycle.
- We do not have to worry about scalability.
- Reduced time to deployment.
- Higher costs to run the application due to AWS billing.
- Better error handling and recovery for our application.
- Decreases the amount of time spent by engineers deploying and maintaining the applications.
- Allows for having multiple environments for the same application (i.e. development, testing, production).
- Positive - we are able to reliable scale our API workloads, due to nature of workloads we run on tiny instances (t2 series) meaning we only pay for what we need.
- Allows us to scale existing solutions fairly quickly, but still requires some review before we can execute.
- Fairly straight forward and low maintenance once you get it up and running.
- Had a positive impact on our ROI as we could quickly deploy our application for one of the hack events as we didn't have to invest on other areas again.
- One of the issues, which can exist in all cloud platforms is latency which caused our NodeJs asychronous application to behave differently after deployed, though it turned out to be callback issue in the code.
- Very satisfied on deciding to invest on Amazon Webservices specifically Beanstalk as it handled out auto scaling issues as well based on the need.
- Overall the impact of using Elastic Beanstalk has been quite positive.
- The only difficult part is the global adoption by all of the teams.
- Elastic Beanstalk is free for use.
- You are going to pay for Ec2 instance behind it.
- Scalability and performance issues handled by Elastic Beanstalk are perfect.
- 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.
- I spend less time managing infrastructure. So I plainly saved the cost of one employee.
- I am completely invested to the AWS environment. Hence EBS is a natural choice. The ROI was significant because I am already invested in AWS.
- Sticking to one vendor, means my team has to swim in familiar waters.
- No extra access issues, because our IAM is already set up. Thus onboarding this technology wasn't difficult.
- It's saved us time and money in man-hours of work.
- I was able to successfully host a SPA web app
- It took me much longer to host a SPA using node than I originally thought
- Overall it was a great learning experience and I would consider it again
- Greatly reduced time in setting up and deploying test environments has saved a lot of hours and money.
- Near-zero maintenance means that we don't spend any time tending to servers, the app containers just work.
- The initial learning curve is a little steep to get services hosted in Elastic Beanstalk talking to external services like Redis, MongoDB, etc; but once one understands the pattern, development is a breeze.
- The command line interface has enabled us to build many utility scripts that simplify our development workflow, thereby saving time.
- AWS Elastic Beanstalk had a net positive impact on my ROI because I was only charged for the resources I used.
- negative. lost time with this company
- We have a cloud based application, and it solves the problem of computing something which requires heavy resources and not having a large device of your own.
- Also it is possible to access the machine from anywhere and start working on it.
- The main benefit it gives us is being able to have a very small ops team for the number of services running.
- Easy to use cost estimators and hard-stop tools make it easy to manage the budget and keep your intended ROI in sight.
- AWS easy to understand billing gives you further insight into your application space's overall cost and productivity.
