AWS Elastic Beanstalk For Node.js

Node.js continues its bid for World domination with the news that AWS Elastic Beanstalk now supports Node.js applications.

Elastic Beanstalk already offered support for deploying and managing Java, PHP, Python, Ruby, and .NET applications on AWS, and inevitably has now added support for Node.js applications.

Node.js overcomes the problem of needing separate languages for the client and server by bringing JavaScript to the server. As we explain in our guide to getting started with Node.js ), it doesn't achieve this by simply grafting a language onto the existing web server like PHP or .NET - instead the web server is built into the Node.js system. That is, you install Node.js and you have a ready-to-run web server.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk provides a simple way to deploy and manage applications in the AWS cloud. You upload your application, and Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring.

According to Amazon, one benefit of using Elastic Beanstalk for Node.js is the range of configuration settings that you can use to customize the environment for your application. You can configure HTTP or TCP load balancing, set the version and command to launch your Node.js application, and improve performance by offloading static content handling to Apache or Nginx.

There are more details on using Elastic Beanstalk for Node.js in the AWS Elastic Beanstalk Developer Guide.
