We are pleased to announce that AWS Elastic Beanstalk now supports assigning public IP addresses to EC2 instances in a VPC. This feature allows you to create Elastic Beanstalk environments in a VPC with a single public subnet. You no longer need to create a VPC with a private and public subnet, and a NAT instance.
To begin using this feature, read Launching an AWS Elastic Beanstalk Application with Public Instances in a VPC. To learn more about this feature, please refer to IP Addressing in Your VPC.
