Elastic Beanstalk: Deploy and manage applications in the AWS cloud
AWS Elastic Beanstalk is an easy way to deploy and scale applications written in Python, Ruby, Java, Node.js, Go, or PHP in familiar environments like Apache, Nginx, Passenger, and IIS, without worrying about the infrastructure that runs those applications.
In this Lab, you will learn how to upload your code and deploy it with monitoring, auto-scaling, and load-balancing. Elastic Beanstalk is also free - you only pay for the AWS resources your application needs to run. Elastic Beanstalk lets you directly control the underlying AWS resources if required.
Upon completion of this Lab, you will be able to:
- Create Elastic Beanstalk applications and environments
- Manage and monitor Elastic Beanstalk applications and environments
- Understand different application update strategies in Elastic Beanstalk
You should be familiar with:
- Basic Amazon EC2 and Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) concepts
Before completing the Lab instructions, the environment will look as follows:
After completing the Lab instructions, the environment should look similar to:
October 16, 2018 - Adapted the Lab to use an Application Load Balancer (the new default) rather than a Classic Load Balancer
April 12, 2018 - Complete update including easier to follow instructions and screenshots for the new Elastic Beanstalk UI
