RDS database instance has MultiAZ disabled

Risk Level

Informational (4)



The RDS database instance {AwsRdsDbInstance} does not have Multiple Availability Zones enabled. A multi-AZ deployment creates RDS instances in different availability zones, thereby avoiding the creation of a single point of failure.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    Convert the RDS instance into a multi-AZ RDS deployment to maximize durability and availability.
