Aurora DNS is an API-driven and intelligent DNS service which directs traffic based on health checks. By monitoring Aurora Compute instances (or servers outside our network) traffic can be sent or not based on their availability.
Aurora DNS is developed with full support for IPv6, both in its DNS and health check functionalities.
Aurora DNS is built on top of PowerDNS: a widely used and supported open source DNS package.
Aurora DNS automatically monitors the health of your servers using HTTP, HTTPS or TCP health checks and can determine which servers are available to process DNS responses.
Aurora DNS is spread out geographically over multiple data centers with redundant network paths, insuring top of the line stability and continuity.
Aurora DNS comes with a simple, yet powerful API which lets you manage your DNS records and zones, and allows you to configure your health checks.
In comparison with most DNS services, Aurora DNS supports a minimum TTL of just 60 seconds, allowing for a fast failover to be realized when deemed necessary by your health checks.
