Deploying to Amazon

The Toolkit for Visual Studio supports application deployment to Amazon Elastic Beanstalk containers or Amazon CloudFormation stacks.


If you are using Visual Studio Express Edition:

  • You can use the Docker CLI to deploy applications to Amazon ECS containers.

  • You can use the Amazon Management Console to deploy applications to Elastic Beanstalk containers.

For Elastic Beanstalk deployments, you must first create a web deployment package. For more information, see How to: Create a Web Deployment Package in Visual Studio. For Amazon ECS deployment, you must have a Docker image. For more information, see Visual Studio Tools for Docker.
