AWS Elastic Beanstalk now supports creating Network Load Balancers through the AWS Elastic Beanstalk console.

Previously, you could only create a Network Load Balancer using the AWS Elastic Beanstalk CLI (Command Line Interface). Now in the Elastic Beanstalk console, you can now choose Network Load Balancer in addition to Application Load Balancer and Classic Load Balancer, when you configure your Elastic Beanstalk environment for high availability. A Network Load Balancer is ideal for load balancing of TCP traffic and is capable of handling millions of requests per second while maintaining ultra-low latencies. Network Load Balancers are also optimized to handle sudden and volatile traffic patterns. For more information about the features supported by each load balancer type, see Comparison of Elastic Load Balancing Products.

In addition, the AWS Elastic Beanstalk console now defaults to using Application Load Balancer by default instead of the previous generation Classic Load Balancer when creating an Elastic Beanstalk high availability environment.
