Welcome - Routing Control API Reference Guide


Welcome to the Routing Control (Recovery Cluster) API Reference Guide for Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller.

With Recovery Cluster in Application Recovery Controller, you can use routing control with extreme reliability that enables you to recover applications by rerouting traffic, for example, across Availability Zones or AWS Regions. Routing controls are simple on/off switches hosted on a cluster in Application Recovery Controller. A cluster is a set of five redundant Regional endpoints against which you can run API calls to update or get the state of routing controls. To implement failover, you turn one routing control on and another one off, to reroute traffic from one Availability Zone or AWS Region to another.

This API guide includes information about the API operations for how to get and update routing control states in Application Recovery Controller.

Be aware that you must specify Regional endpoints when you work with API cluster operations to get or update routing control states in Application Recovery Controller.
