AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery (AWS DRS) now allows you to automate validations when launching EC2 instances for recovery and drills. This saves you time used to perform tedious manual verifications, as AWS DRS empowers you to define custom automated validations tailored to your specific needs. Also, you can leverage the convenience of pre-defined validations such as volume free space detection and network connectivity verification, providing you with the tools to conduct thorough drills to ensure robust and resilient production environments.

AWS 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. With this change, you can now include and automate any required validation in the AWS DRS launch flow, and raise your confidence that if a disaster strikes, the recovery of your applications will be successful. 

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