Auto Recovery is an Amazon EC2 feature that is designed to increase instance availability. Auto Recovery for Amazon EC2 is now available in the AWS GovCloud (US) Region. You can automatically recover supported instances when a system impairment is detected. Auto Recovery keeps your existing instance running and automatically recovers your instance on new underlying hardware, if needed, so you do not generally need to migrate to a new instance.

There is no extra charge for the EC2 aspect of this feature. The usual CloudWatch charges apply (see the CloudWatch Pricing page for more information). Instance recovery is subject to underlying limitations, as reflected in the Instance Recovery Troubleshooting documentation.
