Ensure that your Amazon Database Migration Service (DMS) replication instances are using Multi-AZ deployment configurations to provide High Availability (HA) through automatic failover to standby replicas in the event of a failure such as an Availability Zone (AZ) outage, an internal hardware or network outage, a software failure or in case of a planned maintenance session.
This rule can help you with the following compliance standards:
This rule resolution is part of the Cloud Conformity Security & Compliance tool for AWS
With Multi-AZ feature enabled, AWS DMS service creates and maintains synchronous replicas across different Availability Zones to provide data redundancy, eliminate I/O freeze-ups and minimize latency spikes. Running a replication instance with Multi-AZ deployment enabled will improve availability during system maintenance, help protect the instance against failure and Availability Zone disruption, and provide redundant replication stream during ongoing replications and long database migrations.
