AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery (AWS DRS) now supports additional capabilities to help simplify managing the launch settings for your source servers. The launch settings you define using Elastic Disaster Recovery determine how to launch your source servers on AWS as drill and recovery instances. Elastic Disaster Recovery minimizes 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.

With this launch, you can now use Elastic Disaster Recovery to define default launch settings to apply to new source servers, and you can modify launch settings in bulk for multiple source servers. These additional management capabilities allow a simplified process to modify your launch settings at scale. For applications running on AWS, you can also modify the recovery Availability Zone for multiple source servers, which helps simplify cross-Availability Zone recovery.

The additional launch settings management 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.
