Amazon Simplifies the Cloud With Elastic Beanstalk
Stan Schroeder writes about Amazon Web Services’ new Elastic Beanstalk service.

“Amazon Web Services has launched a new service called Elastic Beanstalk, which helps developers simplify the management of their applications in the cloud. The service, launched in beta, is primarily aimed at developers who either can’t or don’t want to manage every little detail about the deployment of their app in the cloud, such as load balancing, auto scaling and health monitoring.”

“During the fourth quarter, AMD pulled in $1.65B in revenue, which was an increase over the previous quarter of a mere two per cent, and flat year-on year.
