Beginning today, you can use the Amazon Route 53 Auto Naming APIs to create CNAME records when you register instances of your microservices, and your microservices can discover the CNAMEs by querying DNS for the service name. Additionally, you can use the Amazon Route 53 Auto Naming APIs to create Route 53 alias records that route traffic to Amazon Elastic Load Balancers (ELBs).
Now you can register your service instances using Amazon Route 53 Auto Naming APIs and specify settings for A, AAAA, CNAME, and SRV records, and for Route 53 alias records that route traffic to an ELB load balancer. To learn more about Amazon Route 53 Auto Naming, please see our documentation and product page.
