We are excited to announce that AWS Elastic Beanstalk for .NET now supports configuration files as well as integration with Amazon VPC and Amazon RDS. AWS Elastic Beanstalk for .NET allows you to easily run and manage your .NET applications on AWS using Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2012.

Using configuration files, you can setup software on Amazon EC2 instances within your environment, without having to create a custom AMI. For example, you can install and configure Windows services to run on the same instances as your web application. You can also use configuration files to provision resources such as an Amazon DynamoDB table, an Amazon CloudWatch alarm, or an Amazon SQS queue. To learn more about configuration files, visit the AWS Elastic Beanstalk Developer Guide.

Elastic Beanstalk .NET environments now seamlessly integrate with Amazon RDS and can also run inside existing VPCs. Using Amazon VPC, you can now easily deploy private .NET web applications including intranet web applications and web service backends. To learn more about deploying your Elastic Beanstalk application in a VPC or connecting to RDS, visit "Using AWS Elastic Beanstalk with Amazon VPC" and "Using Amazon RDS" in the AWS Elastic Beanstalk Developer Guide.
