AWS Elastic Beanstalk is an offering from Amazon Web Services that you can use to host, deploy, and scale your web applications. It supports many popular languages and web servers.

Under the hood, AWS Elastic Beanstalk uses standard AWS services such as Amazon VPC (Virtual Private Cloud), Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service), and AWS EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud). There's no charge to use Elastic Beanstalk itself. You are only charged for the standard resources you use.

In this hands-on challenge lab, you will be given a scenario and a set of tasks to complete to meet the scenario's requirements.

This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied situation, leaving behind multiple-choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
