Populate a DNS zone from the list of EC2 instances in your AWS account
- Periodically interrogates the EC2 API to retrieve the list of running instances
- Uses instance-tags to determine the "role" and "environment" of each instance
- Periodically uses this list of instances to populate a DNS zone in Route53
- One internal round-robin A-record per "role" per environment using private IP addresses:
- "webserver.us-east-1.i.test.domain.com" => [10.0.1.1, 10.0.2.1, 10.0.3.1]
- One internal round-robin A-record per "role" per AZ per environment using private IP addresses:
- "database.us-east-1a.i.live.domain.com" => [10.2.1.11]
- One external round-robin A-record per "role" per environment using public IP addresses:
- "gateway.us-east-1.i.staging.domain.com" => [220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124]
