Zonal shift for Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller is now available in all standard AWS Regions.
Zonal shift is a capability in Route 53 ARC that helps you quickly recover from application failures in an Availability Zone (AZ) by shifting traffic away from the AZ. You can start a zonal shift for a load balancer in the AWS Management Console, or you can use the AWS CLI or an SDK to start a zonal shift. When the affected AZ has recovered, you can cancel the zonal shift to allow traffic to return to the AZ. Zonal shift is available for Application Load Balancers and Network Load Balancers with cross-zone load balancing turned off.
With this update, zonal shift for Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller is now also available in the US West (N. California), Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Asia Pacific (Hyderabad), Asia Pacific (Melbourne), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Osaka), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Canada (Central), Europe (London), Europe (Milan), Europe (Paris), Europe (Spain), Middle East (Bahrain), Europe (Zurich), Middle East (UAE), and South America (São Paulo) AWS Regions. Previously, zonal shift was available in the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Jakarta), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), and Europe (Stockholm) AWS Regions.
