AWS Elastic Beanstalk vs Beanstalk: What are the differences?

What is AWS Elastic Beanstalk? Quickly deploy and manage applications in the AWS cloud. Once you upload your application, Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring.

What is Beanstalk? Private code hosting for teams. A single process to commit code, review with the team, and deploy the final result to your customers.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk belongs to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack, while Beanstalk can be primarily classified under "Code Collaboration & Version Control".

Some of the features offered by AWS Elastic Beanstalk are:

  • Elastic Beanstalk is built using familiar software stacks such as the Apache HTTP Server for Node.js, PHP and Python, Passenger for Ruby, IIS 7.5 for .NET, and Apache Tomcat for Java
  • There is no additional charge for Elastic Beanstalk - you pay only for the AWS resources needed to store and run your applications.
  • Easy to begin – Elastic Beanstalk is a quick and simple way to deploy your application to AWS. You simply use the AWS Management Console, Git deployment, or an integrated development environment (IDE) such as Eclipse or Visual Studio to upload your application

On the other hand, Beanstalk provides the following key features:

  • Setup and manage repositories- Import or create Subversion and Git repositories that are instantly available to your team.
  • Invite team members, partners & clients- Restrict access to certain repos and provide read-only or full read/write permissions.
  • Browse files and changes- Every version of every file you’ve committed to Beanstalk is just a click away. See a timeline of who made changes and view the differences between revisions. Syntax highlighting for over 70 languages.

"Integrates with other aws services" is the primary reason why developers consider AWS Elastic Beanstalk over the competitors, whereas "Ftp deploy" was stated as the key factor in picking Beanstalk.

According to the StackShare community, AWS Elastic Beanstalk has a broader approval, being mentioned in 374 company stacks & 119 developers stacks; compared to Beanstalk, which is listed in 21 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.
