    Hello GGL,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    AWS Elastic Beanstalk is like Amazon EC2, it can also host a website. The only difference between the two is that Elastic Beanstalk is a Platform-as-a-Service while EC2 is Infrastructure-as-a-Service. Your question is “how Elastic Beanstalk can host a website?”, you can check out these tutorials and samples from the AWS Elastic Beanstalk documentation.

    Based on the given scenario, the key point here is the “license of their OCR software will expire soon.” Among the options given and with the provided explanation. The best answer here is “Create a new S3 bucket to store and serve the scanned image files using a CloudFront web distribution. Launch a new Elastic Beanstalk environment to host the website across multiple Availability Zones and set up a CloudSearch for query processing, which the website can use. Use Amazon Rekognition to detect and recognize text from the scanned old newspapers.”
