Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller

Simplify and automate recovery for highly available applications

Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller gives you insights into whether your applications and resources are ready for recovery. The Application Recovery Controller also helps you manage and coordinate recovery for your applications across AWS Availability Zones (AZs) or Regions. These capabilities make application recoveries simpler and more reliable by reducing the manual steps required by traditional tools and processes.

Benefits

Simplify recovery for multi-AZ and multi-Region applications

With the Route 53 Application Recovery Controller, you can use zonal shift and routing control to more quickly mitigate impairments for a multi-AZ or multi-Region application. These features support active-active and active-standby applications at any scale.

Validate recovery readiness for multi-Region applications

Route 53 Application Recovery Controller continually monitors resource quotas, capacity, and network routing policies, suggesting remediation when changes are made that would affect your ability to fail over to a standby replica. With configurable safety rules, you can prevent operators or automated policies from taking recovery actions that might lead to unexpectedly long recovery times.

Maintain high availability

With Route 53 Application Recovery Controller, you can reliably mitigate failures in minutes for even your largest and most critical applications. Use the Application Recovery Controller to quickly shift application traffic between multiple isolated environments to improve your application’s availability.

Use cases

Large-scale application recovery

During a failure in even your largest and most complex applications, you can use routing control and zonal shift to quickly shift end user traffic to restore availability.

Mitigating partial application failures

Route 53 Application Recovery Controller provides you with the tools you need to have confidence in a successful application recovery and to fail over quickly. Use routing controls for multi-Region applications or zonal shift for multi-AZ applications to recover from even a partial failure, such as a few milliseconds increase in latency or a 5% increase in error rates.

Monitor readiness for recovery

Continually monitor resource quotas, capacity, and network routing policies for your multi-Region applications and review changes that would affect your ability to fail over to a standby replica.
