AWS Elastic Beanstalk vs Apache Tomcat: What are the differences?

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; Apache Tomcat: An open source software implementation of the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies. Apache Tomcat powers numerous large-scale, mission-critical web applications across a diverse range of industries and organizations.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk can be classified as a tool in the "Platform as a Service" category, while Apache Tomcat is grouped under "Web Servers".

"Integrates with other aws services" is the top reason why over 74 developers like AWS Elastic Beanstalk, while over 76 developers mention "Easy" as the leading cause for choosing Apache Tomcat.

Apache Tomcat is an open source tool with 3.51K GitHub stars and 2.4K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Apache Tomcat's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Apache Tomcat has a broader approval, being mentioned in 566 company stacks & 430 developers stacks; compared to AWS Elastic Beanstalk, which is listed in 374 company stacks and 118 developer stacks.

Decisions about AWS Elastic Beanstalk and Apache Tomcat

I was in a situation where I have to configure 40 RHEL servers 20 each for Apache HTTP Server and Tomcat server. My task was to 1. configure LVM with required logical volumes, format and mount for HTTP and Tomcat servers accordingly. 2. Install apache and tomcat. 3. Generate and apply selfsigned certs to http server. 4. Modify default ports on Tomcat to different ports. 5. Create users on RHEL for application support team. 6. other administrative tasks like, start, stop and restart HTTP and Tomcat services.

I have utilized the power of ansible for all these tasks, which made it easy and manageable.
