Today, AWS announced the general availability of Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller, a new capability in Route 53 that makes it easy for developers to continuously monitor their applications’ ability to recover from failures and control their recovery across AWS Regions, Availability Zones, and on-premises infrastructure. Amazon Route 53 is a highly available and scalable cloud Domain Name Service that routes end-user and application requests to internet applications. Application Recovery Controller triggers traffic failovers between redundant application copies, or replicas, running in separate AWS or on-premises locations. Application Recovery Controller also monitors AWS resource configurations and routing policies associated with your applications and alerts you when changes are made that affect the ability of your applications to recover using replicas. 

This capability makes application recoveries easier to execute and more reliable by eliminating the manual steps typically required when using traditional tools and processes to manage application recovery. Application Recovery Controller helps you recover from failures almost immediately, which is a requirement for applications, such as real-time payment processing or trading engines, with extremely high availability needs. For a complete list of Regions supported by Amazon Route 53, see the AWS Region table.
