Amazon introduces AWS Elastic Beanstalk and just can't stop innovating

Posted by on in Blogs
When Delphi XE introduced few months ago the support for deploying applications directly from the IDE into the Amazon EC2 cloud, I have started to be intrigued by Amazon Web Services and kept watching it. To me Amazon is clearly one of the most innovating software companies and de facto leader in cloud computing.

Today Amazon announced AWS Elastic Beanstalk. You simply upload your application, and Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring that so far you had to configure yourself. Currently the first beta release supports only TomCat-based Java applications, but I am sure the other app types will follow soon.

Just to give you the context of AWS quick pace of innovation here are some recent examples:

These guys   simply kick ... ;-)

    Actually this is (almost) the same as the Googe App Engine which is available for cloud deployment of Java web applications since May 2008. A good thing with Google App Engine is that the basic account is free, but still allows several millions of HTTP requests per month.

    Now we just need API support directly in the VCL and we can start making big bucks. ;)

    It is a really point. TIdHttp component wrapped inside the Delphi SDK for AWS and we are almost there.
