AWS Elastic Beanstalk: First Impressions 2016/12/02
I've been building my first app in AWS Elastic Beanstalk. There's a lot to like in this platform.
There's a learning curve when you setup the system, but once you're done everything seems to be working smoothly. Deployments are easy from command line and I haven't had any problems so far.
Here's the things that I like the most:
- Easy to set up a separate web tier and a background worker tier
- Possible to use your own custom server AMI (I needed some custom binaries for image processing)
- Nice web based console for setting things up
I'm still learning and I'm probably not utilizing the full potential of Elastic Beanstalk.
