AWS Elastic Beanstalk is a quick, free, and simple way to deploy, monitor, and scale applications by automating deployment of resources using code.
All you have to do is pick a few settings and upload your code, and Elastic Beanstalk handles everything else, like load balancing, provisioning, auto scaling, and app health monitoring for you.
This compute service allows developers to focus on writing code instead of worrying about managing and configuring the application stack/platforms.
Rather than spending time learning about databases, firewalls, and networks, Elastic Beanstalk keeps the platform running with latest patches and updates.
Despite having the freedom from maintaining the underlying infrastructure, you also retain full control of the resources your applications use, so you can swap them outa or change them around at any time.
Best of all, utilizing AWS Elastic Beanstalk is free! You pay for the underlying infrastructure (for example, your Amazon EC2 instances), but not for utilizing the service itself.
