Amazon Web Services, announced a new offering dubbed "AWS Elastic Beanstalk," aimed to simplify the deployment and management of AWS cloud applications developed by third parties.
AWS Elastic Beanstalk, is an even easier way for developers to quickly deploy and manage app in the AWS cloud. Easy to begin and impossible to outgrow, developers simply upload their app and EB automatically handles the deployment details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and app health monitoring. At the same time, EB developers retain full control over the AWS resources powering their app and can access the underlying resources at any time.
While the initial release of EB supports Java web app developers using the familiar Apache Tomcat software stack, EB is designed so that it can be extended to support multiple development stacks and programming languages in the future.
EB evidently leverages other AWS services such as Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, Amazon Simple Notification Service, Elastic Load Balancing, and Auto-Scaling. For more information, check out the FAQ and Documentation sections.
There's no additional charge for EB -- customers pay only for the AWS resources needed to run their apps.
