Product Details

What is AWS Elastic Beanstalk?

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.

  • We have our website hosted using AWS elastic Beanstalk, and it makes our marketing very fast, as there's the feature of auto-deployment whenever there's any change. This ensures zero DevOps time indulged in any new update release.
  • Most of our product is hosted with it, and it has helped us to roll out new features with no time. Which directly affected our ROI positively.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
