AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery (AWS DRS) is the recommended service for disaster recovery to AWS. It provides similar capabilities as CloudEndure Disaster Recovery, and is operated from the AWS Management Console. This enables seamless integration between AWS DRS and other AWS services, such as AWS CloudTrail, AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), and Amazon CloudWatch.

With AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery, you can recover your applications on AWS from physical infrastructure, VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, and cloud infrastructure. You can also use AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery to recover Amazon EC2 instances in a different AWS Region.

You can use AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery to recover all of your applications and databases that run on supported Windows and Linux operating system versions.

AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery currently supports the following AWS Regions: US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), and Europe (London).

Which use cases may require using CloudEndure Disaster Recovery?

Currently, AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery does not support all of the AWS Regions or operating systems that are supported by CloudEndure Disaster Recovery.

If your preferred AWS Region is not currently supported by AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery, or if your operating system version is not currently supported by AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery, consider using CloudEndure Disaster Recovery.

If you are already using CloudEndure Disaster Recovery, you can continue to do so without interruption. Please engage AWS Premium Support or your Technical Account Manager (TAM) to determine the best time to switch to AWS Elastic Disaster Recovery.
