Which AWS Elastic Beanstalk Deployment Method Should You Use?

Elastic Beanstalk Deployment Methods

Let’s say that you are a developer building awesome applications using Node.js or Python, but lacking knowledge and experience necessary to configure AWS environments. No worries!

It uses preconfigured CloudFormation templates and provisions a scalable, load balanced and reliable environment for your application. It supports lots of programming languages, giving you less control but less worry in return. You can start from a single instance and make your architecture grow into a multi-instance cluster.

Although it may sound simple until now, actually Elastic Beanstalk is more than this. It provides you many deployment options and you can select one of them depending on your environment and use case. In this post, I will explain the options and when to consider them.
