AWS Elastic Beanstalk – Amazon News

Amazon releases the new AWS ‘Elastic Beanstalk’

Information from Amazon Website

“Elastic Beanstalk leverages AWS services such as Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, Amazon Simple Notification Service, Elastic Load Balancing, and Auto-Scaling to deliver the same highly reliable, scalable, and cost-effective infrastructure that hundreds of thousands of businesses depend on today. However, you don’t need familiarity with AWS services to begin running your applications on the AWS technology infrastructure platform. Rather, you simply upload your application to Elastic Beanstalk using the AWS Management Console, the AWS Toolkit for Eclipse, or the Elastic Beanstalk command line tools or API– and behind the scenes, Elastic Beanstalk handles the provisioning and deployment of the infrastructure needed to run the application. Once the application is deployed, Elastic Beanstalk will automatically monitor application health and Amazon EC2 instance performance. Elastic Beanstalk is easy to begin and impossible to outgrow.

Most existing application containers or platform-as-a-service solutions, while reducing the amount of programming required, significantly diminish your flexibility and control. You are forced to live with all the decisions pre-determined by the vendor – with little to no opportunity to take back control over various parts of your application’s infrastructure.

However, with Elastic Beanstalk, if you decide you want to take over some (or all) of the elements of your infrastructure, you can do so seamlessly by using Elastic Beanstalk’s management capabilities. For example, you can enable login access into the application servers, browse log files, monitor application health, adjust auto-scaling rules, and setup email notifications through the Elastic Beanstalk console. You also have the flexibility to select the appropriate Amazon EC2 instance type and choose from several available database options (such as Amazon RDS, Amazon SimpleDB, Microsoft SQL Server, or Oracle).”

Get Started with AWS Elastic Beanstalk

WS Elastic Beanstalk enables developers to quickly deploy and manage applications in the AWS cloud without having to worry about the infrastructure that runs those applications. AWS Elastic Beanstalk is designed to reduce management complexity without restricting choice or control. You simply upload your application and AWS Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring. AWS Elastic Beanstalk uses highly reliable and scalable services such as Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, Amazon Simple Notification Service, Elastic Load Balancing, and Auto Scaling to deploy your application within minutes. You can also perform most deployment tasks such as changing the fleet size or monitoring your application directly from the AWS Elastic Beanstalk web interface.

The tasks in the following diagram can help you get started with AWS Elastic Beanstalk. You’ll use the AWS Management Console, a point-and-click web-based interface.
