Description

An Elastic Load Balancer is detected with just one healthy instance. If the instance goes down, it will lead to downtime and service disruption.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    To achieve high levels of availability, reliability, and fault tolerance, ensure that there are always at least two EC2 instances assigned to your Elastic Load Balancers.
