Learn more about one of the newest Amazon Web Services (AWS) products: AWS Elastic Beanstalk. AWS Elastic Beanstalk provides developers an easier way to deploy and manage applications in the AWS cloud. Developers simply upload their application, and Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring. With AWS Elastic Beanstalk, developers retain full control over the AWS resources powering their application and can access the underlying resources at any time. There is no additional charge for Elastic Beanstalk – customers pay only for the AWS resources needed to run their applications. The first release of AWS Elastic Beanstalk, available today, is built for Java developers using the familiar Apache Tomcat software stack.
