Amazon's Route 53 provides three services: record creation (which registers the human-readable names you'd like associated with your web domains), request handling (to direct web traffic to the right servers), and health checks (to ensure that traffic isn't being directed to servers that can't handle the load).

Very few web-facing AWS deployments can really be considered complete without applying the tools Route 53 makes available, so cloud expert David Robinson will guide you through some of the more common - and useful - domain-related tasks, including:

  • Domain name management
  • DNS failover
  • Health checks
  • Latency-based routing
