The announcement from Amazon keep getting better and better. I am very pleased that we selected AWS as the platform for Keyapt. Keyapt SMS uses Elastic Beanstalk but until now the development team had to share a login.

Today Amazon announced that Elastic Beanstalk users will be able to use the Identity and Access Management support that has been available to EC2 users. This is a great step forward for building secure scalable systems on the platform. Now for example, I can make sure that a low privilege user such as myself doing development does make an accidental release to production.
