Cloudflared Tunnels replica/backup

Hello,

We are using VPC network in AWS, now cloudflared daemon installed on EC2 in private subnet and connected with Cloudflare Edge

Internal App <-> EC2 & cloudflared <-> Cloudflare Edge <-> enduser

In case EC2 goes down all connections to our internal apps goes down too

Can we run secondary EC2 in another subnet in same VPC and use Cloudflared Replicas as backup connection? Or better way exist especially for Cloudflare Tunnels?

That would be the best mechanism generally. Additional context: https://blog.cloudflare.com/highly-available-and-highly-scalable-cloudflare-tunnels/
