Load balancing/app platform/AWS Elastic Beanstalk

Hi all

Has anyone had much experience (or success) using an application platform to run Xenforo, like AWS Elastic Beanstalk or Heroku?

I'll let you know, I'm currently moving a (previously) vB4 site to AWS and plan to set it up for the best scaling structure, which I guess is the elastic beanstalk. What a name!

Used the importer yesterday (flawless, quick) and now running XF 1.2.x.

I too am anxious to know if anyone else out there is using Elastic Beanstalk and has any input / review...

I use the AWS setup including all its services and it works great:

Route53
Cloudfront
ELB
S3
EBS
EC2
Opsworks
Elasticache
RDS
SQS
SNS
Lambda
Elasticsearch

Its nice to have additional information by using:

Config
Cloudtrail
Cloudwatch


It takes some time to understand these resources and set them up.

For just running a forum I guess it is much easier to tell a webhoster: "give me a webserver with php nginx mysql, add the xenforo nginx.conf settings and tell me the passwords for the database."
