Practice with AWS Elastic Beanstalk

Using my Amazon Free Tier account, I completed the Get Started with AWS Elastic Beanstalk example today. The Amazon description of this service is:

AWS Elastic Beanstalk enables developers to quickly deploy and manage applications in the AWS cloud without having to worry about the infrastructure that runs those applications. AWS Elastic Beanstalk is designed to reduce management complexity without restricting choice or control. You simply upload your application and AWS Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring. AWS Elastic Beanstalk uses highly reliable and scalable services such as Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, Amazon Simple Notification Service, Elastic Load Balancing, and Auto Scaling to deploy your application within minutes. You can also perform most deployment tasks such as changing the fleet size or monitoring your application directly from the AWS Elastic Beanstalk web interface.

This service  might be useful in certain business applications where automatic scaling and load-balancing of servers is a requirement. For single-server implementations this is not likely to be the case.
