Node.js continues its bid for World domination with the news that AWS Elastic Beanstalk now supports Node.js applications.
Elastic Beanstalk already offered support for deploying and managing Java, PHP, Python, Ruby, and .NET applications on AWS, and inevitably has now added support for Node.js applications.
AWS Elastic Beanstalk provides a simple way to deploy and manage applications in the AWS cloud. You upload your application, and Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring.
According to Amazon, one benefit of using Elastic Beanstalk for Node.js is the range of configuration settings that you can use to customize the environment for your application. You can configure HTTP or TCP load balancing, set the version and command to launch your Node.js application, and improve performance by offloading static content handling to Apache or Nginx.
There are more details on using Elastic Beanstalk for Node.js in the AWS Elastic Beanstalk Developer Guide.
