Elastic Compute Service:CreateDiskReplicaGroup

Last Updated:Mar 22, 2024

Creates a replication pair-consistent group.

Operation description

Usage notes

The replication pair-consistent group feature allows you to batch manage multiple disks in disaster recovery scenarios. You can restore the data of all disks in the same replication pair-consistent group to the same point in time to allow for disaster recovery of instances.

Take note of the following items:

  • For information about the regions in which the replication pair-consistent group feature is available, see Overview .
  • Replication pair-consistent groups can be used to implement disaster recovery across zones within the same region and disaster recovery across regions.
  • A replication pair and a replication pair-consistent group can replicate in the same direction if they have the same primary region (production region), primary zone (production zone), secondary region (disaster recovery region), and secondary zone (disaster recovery zone). A replication pair can be added to only a replication pair-consistent group that replicates in the same direction as the replication pair.
  • After replication pairs are added to a replication pair-consistent group, the recovery point objective (RPO) of the group takes effect on the pairs instead of their original RPOs.

Authorization information

The following table shows the authorization information corresponding to the API. The authorization information can be used in the Action policy element to grant a RAM user or RAM role the permissions to call this API operation. Description:

  • Operation: the value that you can use in the Action element to specify the operation on a resource.
  • Access level: the access level of each operation. The levels are read, write, and list.
  • Resource type: the type of the resource on which you can authorize the RAM user or the RAM role to perform the operation. Take note of the following items:
    • The required resource types are displayed in bold characters.
    • If the permissions cannot be granted at the resource level, All Resources is used in the Resource type column of the operation.
  • Condition Key: the condition key that is defined by the cloud service.
  • Associated operation: other operations that the RAM user or the RAM role must have permissions to perform to complete the operation. To complete the operation, the RAM user or the RAM role must have the permissions to perform the associated operations.
