Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Creating a routing control in Route 53 ARC

Create a routing control for each cell that you want to route traffic to. For example, when you have an application with resources that you have siloed for recoverability, you might have a cell for each Amazon Web Services Region, and nested cells for each Availability Zone within each Region. In this scenario, you would create a routing control for each cell and each nested cell.

When you create routing controls, keep in mind that routing control names must be unique within each control panel.

After you create routing controls to use for rerouting traffic, you associate each one with a health check, which allows you to route traffic to cells, based on the DNS records that you've associated with each one. If you're setting up a gating rule as a safety rule and creating a gating routing control, you don't add a health check to the routing control.
