I'm thinking of using Elastic Beanstalk (which uses EC2).

Will I receive a dedicated IP address?

Is an Elastic IP a dedicated IP?

I do not want to share an IP with other people.

It's not a shared IP, it's a 'personal' IP. You are the only one that has access to it.

Are my servers the only ones using the IP address? (which is what dedicated offers) – Hope4You Mar 24 '12 at 21:50
Yes they are the only ones. – Lucas Kauffman Mar 24 '12 at 21:53
Just to confirm, are you talking about the Elastic IPs, or non-Elastic? – Hope4You Mar 24 '12 at 21:55
Do note that the IP could have been used by someone else, and it's possible they used it for nefarious purposes (and is thus listed in RBLs, though delisting shouldn't be hard these days) – Chris S Mar 24 '12 at 22:05
