Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced the general availability of AWS Resilience Hub, a new service that provides you with a single place to define, validate, and track the resilience of your applications so that you can avoid unnecessary downtime caused by software, infrastructure, or operational disruptions.

The resilience of an application refers to its ability to maintain availability and recover from software and operational disruption within a specified target measured in terms of Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO). Using AWS Resilience Hub, you can define your applications’ resilience targets (RTO and RPO) and help validate that these targets can be met prior to deployment. AWS Resilience Hub provides automated assessments that identify resilience weaknesses and provide recommended remediation. AWS Resilience Hub also integrates with AWS Fault Injection Simulator to test that resilience targets can be met under different conditions (e.g., database disruptions). When integrated into customers’ CI/CD pipelines, AWS Resilience Hub provides continuous resilience assessments and testing.

AWS Resilience Hub provides a comprehensive view of your overall application portfolio resilience status through its dashboard. To help you track the resilience of applications, AWS Resilience Hub aggregates and organizes resilience events (e.g., unavailable database or failed resilience validation), alerts, and insights from services like Amazon CloudWatch and AWS Fault Injection Simulator. AWS Resilience Hub also generates a resilience score, a scale that indicates the level of implementation for recommended resilience tests, alarms, and recovery SOPs. This score can be used to measure resilience improvements over time.

AWS Resilience Hub is available today in US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Europe (Ireland), and Europe (Frankfurt). Additional regions will be added in the future.

You can try AWS Resilience Hub free for 6 months – up to 3 applications. After that, the AWS Resilience Hub price is $15.00 per application per month. Metering begins once you run the first resilience assessment in AWS Resilience Hub. You will incur charges for any AWS service provisioned by AWS Resilience Hub. Consult your AWS pricing plan for more details on additional charges and visit the AWS Resilience Hub pricing page.
