(The Hosting News) – Open source programming language Python recently made its debut via Amazon Web Services in the form of the platform known as Elastic Beanstalk. On Sunday, the company announced that users would be able to launch Python-based applications through the cloud.
The Amazon service is specifically suited for application deployment and management, already supporting other formats such as JAVA, PHP and .NET.
“Elastic Beanstalk supports Python applications that run on the familiar Apache HTTP server and WSGI. In other words, you can run any Python applications, including your Django applications, or your Flask applications,” commented Amazon via its blog when making announcement.
In addition to the move, customization options are provided with Amazon allowing users to edit runtime via declarative files. Meanwhile, another addition provides the snapshotting of logos for the purpose debug issues.
Amazon made news earlier this month by launching its dedicated connection service (AWS Direct Connect) through new data centers in locations such as Singapore, California, Ireland, Tokyo and New York.
