THE WEB SERVICES ARM of Amazon (AWS) is offering a product called Elastic Beanstalk, which it claims will simplify the deployment and management of AWS cloud applications developed by third parties.
It will let developers upload their software application and then watch while the electric beanstalk handles the deployment details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling and health monitoring.
Amazon is not charging for the service. Developers will only pay only for the AWS resources needed to run their software.
Elastic Beanstalk uses the Amazon web services EC2, S3, Simple Notification Service, Elastic Load Balancing and Auto-Scaling.
The first release is built for Java developers using Apache Tomcat servlets. But the system is designed so that it can be extended to support multiple development stacks and programming languages in the future.
AWS says it is actively working with providers on the APIs and capabilities needed to create additional Elastic Beanstalk offerings.
John Dillon, CEO of Engine Yard said that his outfit is working with AWS to provide an Elastic Beanstalk Ruby on Rails container so that it can use the company's Engine Yard stack. µ
