Amazon announced DNS Failover for Route 53. When activated, DNS Failover will monitor applications and, if an endpoint fails, will reroute traffic to a healthier endpoint. Here are some useful resources from the official announcement.
Getting started is easy, and there are no upfront costs. See the Route 53 product page for full details and pricing.
To get started with DNS Failover for Route 53, read Jeff Barr’s blog post, visit the Route 53 product page, or review our walkthrough in the Amazon Route 53 Developer Guide.
