AWS Elastic Beanstalk vs AWS CloudFormation

One question , i get in most of sessions when talking about Elastic Beanstalk is
"difference between Elastic beanstalk and CloudFormation"

I would like to keep this explanation very simple.

Use  Elastic Beanstalk when you want to deploy the application from supported developer tool and don't want to worry about provision of infrastructure prior to deployment. Elastic beanstalk framework will provision the infrastructure and deploy the code to servers.

Use CloudFormation  when you want a framework to define collection of related AWS resources and provision them in an orderly and predictable fashion


Important to Note 

AWS CloudFormation supports Elastic Beanstalk application environments as one of the AWS resource types


Detailed Information :

CloudFront 

Elastic Beanstalk
