Get on Route 53

Now this is good news for AWS customers:

A reliable, cloud-based DNS service has been one of the most requested offerings by our customers. With Route 53, you can create a “hosted zone” to add DNS records for a new domain or transfer DNS records for a domain you currently own.

The rate at which Amazon implement customer requests is pretty impressive. This issue came up a few times at the AWS seminar I attended recently, and now I understand the odd wry grin from the Amazon staff there. There’s more to come: one of the requests I heard was for the ability to link Elastic Load Balancer instances with DNS names, and that’s next on the list apparently.
