We use AWS Elastic Beanstalk to host a custom API validation service for our business. It interfaces with multiple vendor cloud systems to utilize their unique APIs to validate customer information. It was more economical to develop a single connection point from our cloud ERP system to this validation service in AWS Elastic Beanstalk than to have our ERP connect to the different vendors. We don't have to worry about operating system overhead with this service, and our developers can simply maintain the code changes via Git.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk is being used in specific departments of my organization. The major business problem that it solves is that there is no interaction required with Amazon EC2 as this tool handles all the communications by itself. This also provides an additional layer of abstraction over the operating system and the server.

The team I support uses AWS Elastic Beanstalk for rapid software development with AWS resources. [It's] an easy on-ramp for getting software into the cloud without worrying too much about the underlying architecture and hardware. AWS Elastic Beanstalk lets them go from a concept to deployed code in a very short time. The tool is easily accessible from the console, AWS CLI, and its own dedicated CLI with the latter two being suitable for use in CI/CD pipelines. The main business problem addressed by AWS Elastic Beanstalk is allowing developers to quickly get their ideas online without worrying too much about deploying or managing the resources in the background.

We manage applications in the AWS Cloud without the hassle of creating and running infrastructures.
[AWS Elastic Beanstalk] reduces the management complexity in a huge way with the customizable controls and options.
This also means a small overhead to start a project. AWS [Elastic] Beanstalk supports applications developed in Go, Java, .NET, Node.js, PHP, Python, and Ruby.

For our company the implementation of AWS Elastic Beanstalk was used first for the application development area and then for the operations intelligence team, at the moment the IT areas only have access and use of this platform. Due to the nature of the cloud-based platform and as a service, the problems that were overcome were the delay in the delivery of applications and the infrastructure where they are executed and the control of the company's development processes.

We have been using AWS Elastic Bean stalk for around 3 years and it is one of the best services provided by AWS for developers who don't want get into managing lower level configurations like Load Balancing, auto scaling group, instance type and instance placement groups. We just need to zip their code files and select the environment for the application and that's pretty much it, we can also enable versioning for our deployments and it supports various environment like DEV, PROD etc. And the most beautiful thing about AWS Elastic Beanstalk is that you just need to choose setup types (i.e High Availability, single instance (for dev environment) and custom configuration as well) and it also supports AWS RDS, you just need to configure the connection strings of RDS into your code that's it. It has reduced work of cloud infrastructure by 40-45%.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk is being used across my organization for the deployment of applications running on NodeJS, Python, and Java stacks. IT provides an easy-to-use deployment model to run applications on pre-built application stacks on EC2 instances without having to worry about the underlying infrastructure and application stack. It provides an abstraction layer on top of a range of AWS services such as load balancers, security, and auto-scaling, allowing configuration of all these options from a single console. Through the use of Elastic Beanstalk, our organization has been able to deploy and manage applications on EC2 instances without the hassle of having to manage the EC2 instances themselves, leading to faster deployment times and smaller maintenance windows.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk is used by our company in certain departments for experimental purpose. We are still trying to evaluate its performance. The problem AWS Elastic Beanstalk is solving for us now is the PaaS. We need a platform that can provide the capacity of spinning up a website without managing any of the infrastructures like servers or databases.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk is being used by my organization as a serverless compute system where we can deploy code to run web applications without thinking about infrastructure thus drastically reducing the time to deployment/setup of my system. Elastic Beanstalk is being used primarily by our software development and devops teams to help streamline the deployment process.

We use Elastic Beanstalk for an easy deployment of our API workloads. This allows your development teams to be agile and have regular releases with 0 downtime, and with minimal infrastructure worries as the VPC the workloads are deployed to are already securely locked down. Prior to this the development teams would have had to request a new server and go through the change control taking up to 1 week before a new release could be pushed out.

We are currently using AWS Elastic Beanstalk to help us augment workloads when we have promotions or campaigns that require a variable amount of computing. This allows us to scale as needed with little or no interaction as we focus on the campaign orchestration to maximize our business processes.

AWS Elastic beanstalk makes it very easy for us to deploy the NodeJs applications which we create as part of any project instantly and this enables us to start using Node server without installing any required dependencies on cloud. Also when JAVA REST APIs are developed, the AWS Elastic beanstalk makes it extremely easy to deploy on the server, helping us with setting up environment time.

We use Elastic Beanstalk to deploy Node.js applications. In the past, we had to provision a server and then determine capacities. Now all of that worry is gone. Just upload and go! I love it. Now when we are asked to determine max load of the "system" we can pretty much just say, unlimited.

In my current project, we are using Elastic Beanstalk with tomcat8 application, and have 4 different development environments with it. We are using Elastic Beanstalk to deploy, configure, and monitor our product client. It creates ev2 instances at the back, and handles scalability and performance issues very well.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk is a great tool to use for supercharging the speed to deploy basic applications that are fine running in fairly generic, but high-quality configurations. In using ELB, most of the complicated tasks of server setup are performed by AWS, so your developers are able to focus their efforts on developing your application and less time worrying about how to configure the deployment.

Elastic Beanstalk has been around for some time, but it never caught our eye until we started using AWS CodePipeline.
Currently, we use Elastic Beanstalk (EBS) to run applications on our pipeline. Each stage (dev, perf, prod) has its own set of servers defined under EBS. Our current solution is working very well with CodePipeline.

Elastic Beanstalk handles the deployment and scaling of our applications without the need for any complicated setup, and yet still gives us full control over the provisioning and details of our deployed application. It's used by the developers to deploy our app, but the entire organization benefits from it. It saves us time and money.

I used this as a backend hosting solution for my portfolio. I was looking to dive deeper into AWS solutions and this was a fairly easy way to do so with little upfront knowledge. I was looking at alternatives to hosting my site on another service's linux hosting solution and opted to give this try.

We use Elastic Beanstalk as a quick and easy way to implement test environments in our development process. It allows us to quickly configure deployment scenarios and do testing that would otherwise take ages to set up with traditional in-house server technologies. We can easily scale up and down and test our apps against a true to life deployment configuration. It is only used by the development team.

I used Elastic Beanstalk for my social networking application, Pindigo. It is a Node application I built it in my free time that serves a user base of roughly 2k users. Elastic Beanstalk allowed me to deploy my application with little configuration and effort.

I'm using AWS Elastic Beanstalk to deploy and manage my personnel web application. The free tier is amazing if you want to try it out, as Amazon provides fair free tier usage, so that you can try it out without paying anything. You just need to be careful about the traffic.

We use Beanstalk across our entire organization. It has tremendously helped us stay current, scale to necessary size, and deploy web based content and applications. Being cloud based is a huge bonus, due to its always-on nature and failsafes pout in place to ensure the safety, reliability and availability of our content and data. It has been instrumental.
