Host Recovery automatically recovers instances in the event of unexpected failures (hardware failures, power or network outages etc.) on EC2 Dedicated Hosts making your instances more resilient. You can enable Host Recovery for your EC2 Dedicated Hosts using AWS Management Console, CLI or API. Additionally, the built-in integration of EC2 Dedicated Hosts with AWS License Manager helps automatically track licenses in the event of host recovery.

Host Recovery is now available in the South Africa (Cape Town) and Europe (Milan) regions. Here is the list of AWS regions where Host Recovery is currently supported: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), EU (London), South America (São Paulo), China (Beijing) and China (Ningxia) regions, South Africa (Cape Town) and Europe (Milan).

There are no additional charges for the Host Recovery capability. You pay only for the EC2 Dedicated Hosts. For more information, refer to Dedicated Host Pricing, and Host Recovery documentation.
