  • A failover policy will send all traffic to the server you set as primary for as long as that server is still healthy.
  • It can take 24 to 72 hours for the connection to start working properly.
  • This service allows for the storing of non-essential, easily reproducible data, without the same amount of redundancy and durability as their higher-level storage tiers.
  • However, if your AWS VPC is connected to your internal network and you expect EC2 instances to be able to resolve names of internal systems in your data center or office, then the default VPC resolver cannot help - it does not know the internal DNS and you cannot log in to it and configure it to do forwarding.

Click the link, and you’ll end up on a page that looks like this, but with no entries in the list (unless you’ve already made a bucket): 253 IP address, or the reserved IP address at the base of the VPC IPv4 network range plus two will succeed. Save the redirect settings, then open your Route 53 hosted zone for example. How can I use health checks to verify that my web server is returning the correct content? The ‘A’ type record is the record that says to respond with our S3 website.

  • To enable DNS Failover for an ELB endpoint, create an Alias record pointing to the ELB and set the “Evaluate Target Health” parameter to true.
  • When you create a metric based health check within Amazon Route 53, the health check becomes unhealthy whenever its associated Amazon CloudWatch metric enters an alarm state.
  • Security — Route 53 can use the benefits of AWS Identity Access Management (IAM) to limit the who can access your VPC and what they can access.
