Introducing AWS Elastic Beanstalk (Beta)

Posted on: Jan 19, 2011

We are excited to announce AWS Elastic Beanstalk, an even easier way for developers to quickly deploy and manage applications in the AWS cloud. Easy to begin and impossible to outgrow, developers simply upload their application and Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring. At the same time, Elastic Beanstalk developers retain full control over the AWS resources powering their application and can access the underlying resources at any time. While the initial release of Elastic Beanstalk supports Java web application developers using the familiar Apache Tomcat software stack, Elastic Beanstalk is designed so that it can be extended to support multiple development stacks and programming languages in the future. AWS is actively working with solution providers on the APIs and capabilities needed to create additional Elastic Beanstalk offerings.

There is no additional charge for Elastic Beanstalk – customers pay only for the AWS resources needed to run their applications. Please see the AWS Elastic Beanstalk detail page to learn more and get started today.
