AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery (AWS DRS) now supports automated replication of new disks added to your source servers to help you maintain readiness of your AWS recovery site. Elastic Disaster Recovery helps minimize downtime and data loss with fast, reliable recovery of on-premises and cloud-based applications using affordable storage, minimal compute, and point-in-time recovery.

Following this launch, you will no longer need to install the AWS Replication Agent when new disks are added to your source environment. The service initiates data replication to the staging area subnet in your AWS account. Automating replication helps you to maintain continuous data replication, save time and resources, and reduce the risk of data loss in the event of a disruption.

In addition, Elastic Disaster Recovery now supports Oracle ASM Filter Driver, allowing you to replicate source servers with databases running on Oracle ASM.

The new capabilities are available in all of the AWS Regions where Elastic Disaster Recovery is supported. See the AWS Regional Services List for the most up-to-date availability information. All new capabilities are available for the latest Agent version.
