Amazon Virtual Cloud (VPC) now provides customers an opportunity to recover EIPs that they might have released accidentally. The released EIPs are available for recovery as long as they are not assigned to a different customer. The sooner customers try to recover their EIPs, the better are the chances of recovering them. Customers can recover their EIPs via CLI by using the allocate-address command and specifying the IP address using the --address parameter.

This feature is available in all Amazon Web Services regions, including Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) region operated by Sinnet.
