Deploying to AWS - AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio

Deploying to AWS

The Toolkit for Visual Studio supports application deployment to AWS Elastic Beanstalk containers or AWS 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 AWS 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.
