If you operate an IT environment where some of your resources live in AWS and some live on-premises, you’ve had to face the hybrid cloud DNS problem.
What problem is that? The Route 53 service isn’t a name server like you’re used to, but AWS has enhanced Route 53 to make hybrid cloud DNS easier for enterprises to deal with.
Today, the Datanauts help you understand integrating the Route 53 Resolver with the rest of your DNS environment. Our guide to this integration is Matt Adorjan, Cloud Engineering Manager at Balyasny Asset Management.
In part 1, Matt and the Datanauts discuss how cloud influences and changes traditional IT roles, and then talk about CloudPing.co, a utility Matt created that runs in each AWS region and pings all the other regions to track latency among them.
Part 2 dives into cloud DNS and the challenges that AWS’s Route 53 presents for hybrid cloud deployments. They talk about how Route 53 differs from traditional DNS, why you can’t route to the Route 53 resolver IP across VPN or DX connections, and how to address those limitations.
Part 3 examines the inbound and outbound endpoint feature that AWS added to Route 53, how it works, what it costs, and the pros and cons of this solution vs. other workarounds.
