Migrate RDS instance zone

Last Updated: Sep 14, 2017


Migrate an instance to another zone. For example, if Instance 1 is currently located in the “cn-hangzhou-a” zone of East China 1 (Hangzhou), you can call this interface to migrate the instance to the “cn-hangzhou-b” zone of Hangzhou.

Note: In cross-zone migration, instances must be migrated within the same physical location. For example, instances in a zone of East China 1 (Hangzhou) cannot be migrated to zones of North China 1 (Qingdao).
