Ask HN: Any tutorials/widsom on AWS Beanstalk, given the Heroku story
5 points by JuDue 1389 days ago | hide | past | web | 3 comments | favorite
Anyone got some good tutorials on running Rails & Postgres on AWS Beanstalk?

I still think Heroku is an excellent choice, and will be better once they address some issues, but now might be a good time to explore some options, at least :)




I'm curious about the pricing situation on Elastic Beanstalk. T1.micro instances are very affordable, but is it wise to run a webapp and Postgres on the same instance? I'm not expecting a large audience, but I've heard that one should generally have separate servers for the two.

This really depends on the level of traffic you expect. For lower amounts, it works fine.
