Techopedia Explains AWS Elastic Beanstalk

As a major vendor, AWS is a popular place to deploy applications. AWS Elastic Beanstalk takes a definition of an application based on its desired state and dependencies and deploys based on that model. Users can access the AWS management console, a Git repository or an integrated development environment (IDE) to upload an application and AWS Elastic Beanstalk will handle load balancing, auto scaling and more. The scalability and complete resource control of AWS Elastic Beanstalk are cited as major benefits of using this application deployment model.
