The VMware Cloud service will automatically scale up any stretched cluster on AZ failure. This capability is added free of charge and will attempt to maintain the Compute resources in the event of an AZ failure by adding non-billable hosts to the surviving AZ until the cluster has returned to its original host count. Upon AZ recovery the cluster will automatically Scale-In as soon as the burst capacity is no longer needed. This functionality is dependent on free capacity and therefore carries no guarantee.
This protection extends to partial failures as well. Should an instance fail on a Stretched Cluster and Auto-Remediation is unable to recover or replace the host. The service will add the instance to the other AZ until a new host can be recovered in the original AZ.

Flexible Subscription is a new subscription type for VMware Cloud on AWS now available. It is available for redemption in the VMware Cloud Console as part of the subscription purchasing flow. The benefit of flexible subscription is that it allows for customers to exchange their VMware Cloud on AWS flexible subscription for any new VMware Cloud on AWS term subscription. When requesting an exchange, the leftover value of the VMware Cloud on AWS flexible subscription will be used towards purchasing a new VMware Cloud on AWS full term subscription. Flexible subscription is available for i3.metal and i3en.metal instance type in all regions. Customers can exchange an instance type, region, or duration of their Flexible Subscription. Flexible subscriptions allow customers to commit to VMware Cloud on AWS but maintain flexibility when their business needs change.

Re-protect your virtual machines significantly faster after a planned recovery. The re-protection operation is especially quick when run shortly after the planned recovery such that the delta between the data on the source and recovery sites is not large. VMware Site Recovery now automatically starts tracking changes on the recovered virtual machine after failover. Only those changes are then replicated to the original protected site when re-protect is run and checksum comparisons can be completely avoided. This capability requires at least vSphere 7.0 Update 2 and vSphere Replication 8.4 in both sites.
