AWS::Route53RecoveryReadiness::RecoveryGroup - AWS CloudFormation


Creates a recovery group in Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller. A recovery group represents your application. It typically consists of two or more cells that are replicas of each other in terms of resources and functionality, so that you can fail over from one to the other, for example, from one Region to another. You create recovery groups so you can use readiness checks to audit resources in your application.

For more information, see Readiness checks, resource sets, and readiness scopes in the Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller Developer Guide.

Route 53 ARC Readiness supports us-east-1 and us-west-2 AWS Regions only.
