Use Route53 Resolvers and Traffic Flow Policies on AWS
In this lab, you’ll use Route53 resolvers to share private DNS zones in a hybrid cloud environment. At the end, you’ll be able to use on-premise private DNS names in the cloud and vice versa. You will also create a traffic flow policy and DNS record to balance client load.
Terms and conditions apply.
Create Security Group for Route 53 Resolvers
Create a security group to allow inbound and outbound DNS traffic (port 53) for use by the Route53 resolvers.
Create Route 53 Inbound Resolver
Create an inbound resolver to relay DNS queries into AWS Route53 from the on-premise network.
Create Route 53 Outbound Resolver
Configure AWS Route53 resolver to query the on-premise DNS server for configured domains.
Create Weighted DNS Record with Traffic Flow
Create and test a traffic flow policy and DNS record to balance traffic between two IP addresses.
