AWS Elastic Beanstalk vs Clever Cloud: 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 Clever Cloud? Deploy and run apps with bulletproof infrastructure, automatic scaling, and fair pricing. Clever Cloud is a polyglot cloud application platform. The service helps developers to build applications with many languages and services, with auto-scaling features and a true pay-as-you-go pricing model.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk and Clever Cloud 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, Clever Cloud provides the following key features:

  • Auto-scalability
  • Multi-language
  • SQL and NoSQL
