AWS Elastic Beanstalk vs Platform.sh: 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 Platform.sh? The Idea-to-Cloud Application Platform. It is a Continuous Deployment Platform as a Service powered by a high-availability grid of micro-containers. Support any PHP and NodeJS applications with deep integration for Drupal and Symfony.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk and Platform.sh can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.

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, Platform.sh provides the following key features:

  • Drop in your applications, as-is
  • Easily add and manage services
  • Clone instantly
