I've launched an application in AWS -> Beanstalk using pre-installed server template.
In the process of Beanstalk installation I see it is creating S3 bucket. I'm pretty sure that I didn't select any option to use S3 bucket. If S3 bucket is needed for the Beanstalk application, can you tell me how it works together and what is the purpose? Can I prevent using S3 with Beanstalk?
Best How To :
This S3 bucket is indeed automatically created by Elastic Beanstalk for your new application.
It is used to store some environment files, and more important, zipped builds of your app (each one being a different version). The Beanstalk deployment script simply downloads the .zip from the bucket to the EBS volume.
It looks like there is no option on AWS to change this.
By the way, why don't you want to use S3?
