Amazon WorkSpaces Multi-Region Resilience offers cost-effective, easy-to-manage business continuity solutions that keep your users online and productive with less than 30-minute recovery time objective (RTO) using standby WorkSpaces in another AWS Region during disruptive events. 

Amazon WorkSpaces standby configuration for Multi-Region Resilience automates the creation and management of standby deployment. After setting up a user directory in your preferred secondary Region, simply select the WorkSpaces in your primary Region that you want to create standby WorkSpaces for, either through the AWS management console or the AWS SDK. The system will automatically provision standby WorkSpaces in your secondary Region, using the latest bundle configurations of your primary WorkSpaces without copying the user volume (D drive) or root volume (C drive). 

Amazon WorkSpaces Multi-Region Resilience leverages the existing cross-region redirection (CRR) capabilities and allows you to redirect users to a secondary Region when their primary WorkSpaces Region is unreachable due to disruptive events. It supports both Windows and BYOL (Bring Your Own License) WorkSpaces and is available in 4 AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Frankfurt), and Europe (Ireland). 

To get started, sign in to the Amazon WorkSpaces Management Console. For more information, please refer to Amazon WorkSpaces documentation and Amazon WorkSpaces Multi-Region Resilience Pricing.
